A woman of many talents, Cindy Blias has brought fashionable fitness tracker accessories to the mainstream market. In 2014, she launched Funktional Wearables, a growing line of affordable on-trend jewelry pieces that conceal fitness trackers.
The blending of handmade and digital technologies is taking new and exciting turns through the world of 3D modeling and rapid prototyping processes.
