Hi all,

I received my very first Stanless Steel prints. And I have to say that I am very happy with the results.
These two models are wireframed and the diameter of the thread is 2 mm.

The Brunnian Pendant is a smaller version of the Brunnian Circles. Even though the diameter is 2 mm, the clearance between the thread is still 1 mm as for the original version, because I was afraid the thread would be fused (so it is not exactly a scaled down version). As a consequence the circles are a bit loose, but the result is really convincing. In particular, you do not need any extra ring to attach the pendant to a necklace: thanks to the shape of the circles, it is very easy.

Note that the color is not as reddish as in the pictures.
The marble pendant is the exact replica of the top part of the variation 2 of my Marble Pendant, with the little ring positionned at 45.

I choose this design among all the Marble Pendant because it was the most flexible one in WSF.
Unfortunately, in Stainless Steel it is nearly not flexible at all, and although I choose my smallest marble, I had a lot of difficulties to insert it (and even more to extract it back Smile).
But once again, when I look at the final result, I am very satisfied.

As a consequence, I would like to make new trials with these designs : a thread diameter of 1mm for the Marble Pendant to make it more flexible, and only 0.5mm clearance for the Brunnian Pendant to make it less loose (and perhaps also a diameter of 1 mm?).
What is your opinion ?
