Make A Wish

February 11, 2011

Why didn’t I think of this? The“Make A Wish” ring transforms the iconic birthday cake candle holder into a piece of jewelry that serves as a keepsake of a special day. Buried in a cake as surprise or presented in its beautiful packaging “Make A Wish” will turn anyone’s birthday into a memorable event. Designed by Bettina Nissen, this product is fabricated using a new additive manufacturing technique better known as 3D Printing or Rapid Prototyping, where a high power laser fuses small particles of plastic or metal into a 3-dimensional object. The ‘Make A Wish’ rings are currently available in 5 material or colour options and for sale via Bettina’s website.
UK-based designer, Bettina Nissen has an eye for observation, extracting everyday symbols and routines, incorporating them into her designs. Her pieces often feature contrasting elements or materials with the aim of creating curious, thoughtful and witty contemporary design. These include furniture, home accessories, lighting and jewelry.
Based in the Northeast of England, Nissen works with local fabricators to produce designs in diverse materials such as felt, plastics and metal. Fusing simple, functional forms with humour, Bettina Nissen designs for both limited edition as well as manufacture. Utilising new technology, the innovative products generate subtle shifts in our perception of daily life.German-born designer Bettina Nissen earned her MA in Interior and Furniture Design at the University of Art and Design Halle Germany and studied at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen.
