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?

Lovely,

Be sure to update your product page with the photo and make it the default image.

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