In 2014 Zander's Creations went through some major changes. The business went from a partnership to sole proprietor. Which means that all designs and manufacturing will be coming from Wayne Cook. With change comes new growth and new ideas. Here is one of the latest custom designs that was made for Christmas of last year.

3D computer aided design and manufacturing

technologyWayne CookComment

Zander's Creations utilizes computer aided design software from Gemvision. This has revolutionized our design capability and greatly improved quality of finished pieces. We are able to create new pieces much more efficiently than traditional hand carving or metal fabrication. Combining the old methods with the new allows us to make anything, only limited by our imagination. 

Additionally, with the purchase of a B9 Creator 3D printer, or casting houses which specialize in rapid prototyping we can send the computer file out to be casted in metal of our choice. Computer aided manufacturing has become very popular in the last decade due to various desktop 3D printers such as makerbot, B9 Creator, reprap and many many more. The price point of these machines has dramitcally reduced in the last 5 years due to technological advancements and innovation of very creative people.

The B9 Creator rivals machines 10x the cost allowing us to create high quality pieces we were previously using casting houses to complete for us. We will continue to invest in equipment like these to bring you the best designs that are out of this world!

New wedding rings!

Designs, WeddingWayne CookComment

Recently, I have finished a few new wedding rings and wanted to share them with you. These two are based around the radiant and princess cut diamonds. Accented with round diamonds they will make a nice engagement ring or as a great addition to your existing jewelry. Clicking these will bring you to the product page.

 


International DNA day

DesignsWayne CookComment

April 25th is DNA day! In 1953 the double helical structure of the DNA was discovered by Francis Crick and James Watson.  This important date led to many new discoveries about our bodies and paved the way for the human genome project in the future. Source

Last year on that day, our DNA band was very popular and was posted on many various social networking websites. We designed that ring back in 2011 but the concept was made years before, when we first bought our 3D modeling software.  The ring below was the final result. You may click it to go to the products page. As a fan of science I felt the DNA symbolizes technology and wanted to capture this in a ring. The one we sell on our website here and https://www.etsy.com/shop/ZandersCreations are the only originals! 

This is one we submitted to the AGTA contest which did not place. Maybe next time :) Platinum and 18k gold DNA band with yellow diamonds x18


We have come up with many other concepts as well. Look through the gallery below. We can make things only limited by your imagination!  Much of these are for sale or will be shortly.
