This thesis aimed to apply the 3D-printing technology rapidly introduced to the overall industry to jewelry design. In the results of examining preceding researches, out of 3D-printing methods, the FMD method was used the most in design area. However, for jewelry design, the 3D-printing is used for casting process out of production processes, so that the printing method is not FMD, but DLP. Thus, the researcher examined the material functions and applicability of jewelry design through research works, by applying the 3D-printing in DLP method to jewelry design. In the results, brooches were completed by applying the 3D-printing to the jewelry design with no casting process, and then utilizing enamel and pure silver together. Producing light and solid completed products in various colors, they were verified as applicable materials. Also, as the size and form of curved design mainly used for non-geometric jewelry design could be accurately predicted through Rhino CAD, diverse possibilities of advancement to be easily used for the development of formative form of jewelry design in the future were revealed.
