i just received my silver bead from shapeways,
it looks quite nice, though it had a few artefacts and distortions
so i contacted support about it already

here is a picture of it sitting on my necklace with 2 other beads:

Though i was wondering, is it possible to bend the silver with pliers or is the silver brittle/weak when put under pressure?

The small artifacts on the back should be resolved in the updated model.
