This is my first print in metal, and I'm really pleased with the result.

I modified the original to allow a cord to be passed through... only the design makes it difficult to insert the intended way (through the two holes on the reverse of the head).

A side effect of this was that I was forced to pass the cord through the larger hole and the neck - the result being that the little guy hangs in a more Gecko-like manner... which I think works out for the better.

Admittedly the cord was on the thick side - 2mm leather - a much thinner cord might work through the intended holes. While waiting for the print to arrive, I've figured out a way to implement larger holes, which I'll try in a future print.

One last point - the SS version does indeed tessellate with the WSF version... but only just... I'd need to take a file to the limbs of the plastic variant to make it fit properly... oh well, I quite like it as a stand alone piece... Smile

Shown here in Antique Bronze Matte.
