The Didi Jewelry Project

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Laurel
Home: United States
I sell unique jewelry made by women afflicted by HIV/AIDS and poverty in India. I have partnered with an NGO in Dew Delhi, India and have taught a group of 15 women to make jewelry. I design all the pieces and then teach the ladies I work with in India how to make each design. We then sell the jewelry to help them create the lives they deserve. Our goal is to give them a sustainable income and to help them gain confidence. We are designed locally, yet by purchasing our jewelry buyers are helping women in India, this fact sets us apart and creates a unique purchasing opportunity for customers.

3D-Printed Electric Marble Mazes

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Gualala Gadget
Home: California, United States
We have a variety of battery-powered 3D printed marble machines that we'd like to exhibit. Each model is 3D printed using PLA plastic on consumer FDM printers. This takes anywhere from six to fifteen hours, depending on each model's size and complexity. A model is made from two to seven PLA parts, which are inspected and cleaned of any residual plastic that's a byproduct of the printing process. (None of the models require support material, which simplifies the cleaning process). Once the PLA parts are prepared they, along with the electric parts are assembled into complete models. There's no painting — the plastic is the color it appears. The models are designed in Blender. They use a variety of different mechanisms to lift the marbles.
