3D Printed Contemporary Tie Bar

Title: Open Hole Tie Clips
Date Completed: July 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Due to a breakage I recently needed to make a new order at shapeways to print off a new base for my fifth element key. I used the excuse to make a couple of tie clips as I had planned to create some work jewelery following my Adventure Time golden sword pendant. Both of them were based on the idea of seeing the tie through the clip, whilst still being a feature themselves, and so they feature modern cut aways to give that appearance.
Whilst they looked good, and work well, the designs didn’t sit right with the ties I had and so I never printed them in polished nickel steel like my 3D printed button cufflinks.
Not truly happy with the style, I revisited these tie clips and created some new color changing tie bars.
