Not sure how practical something like that would be in RP. The parts are really slender, and to meet the thickness minimums it might wind up looking beefier than desired. Not to mention it would be very delicate and easily prone to damage.

You'd be better off etching it out of stainless steel.  Far less expensive in the long run, assuming you need more than just a couple.

I'd go with etched NS, and solder it together.
