We say goodbye to plastic drinking straws, because
single use plastic straws are not environmentally
sustainable. But we all may remember when we have cut
the end of a straw 1/2 - 3/4 inch down, in four places and
splayed the ends for blowing bubbles.
So I have created the one of my favorite toys from my
I have made the straw from 925 Sterling Silver and the
bubble by using a 3D printer, so through modern
technique I would be able to produce "soapbubbles" in
series almost like the plastic straws which were mass
The bubble is printed from PLA, because it is an
environment-friendly plastic and fast degradable, similarly
to the short life of a real soapbubble.
I have intentionally chosen a middle priced printer and not
a top quality one. This printers started to spread in the housekeeping for makes toys and articles for personal use. That's why the surface of the bubble is striped. The chain flows out from the straw similarly to the rest of the soapsuds from the plastic straw during the game. With this chain the object becomes wearable, thus we can save and wear this beautiful memory.
