I started working with braid designs to make a wedding ring and matching bangles for my fiance. In these designs the braid is wrapped into a cylindrical shape, like these bangles or this ring. Playing with the concept some more, I turned the braid on its side and discovered a pendant that looks like a sort of braided starburst. These earrings are a smaller version of the braid that I made to make a set with the pendant. The model contains a pair of braids.

The wire that traces the braid has a pentagonal shape, so one side of the earring shows a flat face and the other side is ridged. The photos show the design printed in stainless steel, which also gives it a bit of heft.

I have some earrings that incorporate this model on my Etsy shop, although not in the full variety of materials that Shapeways offers.
