Product Description
Have just finished a version of a Monarch Butterfly Chrysalis (Danaus plexippus is the Latin binomial) - has a loop at the top so it can be worn as an earing, or as a small pendant. It's about an inch tall (25mm), & has been modeled from photographs (for accuracy) of a black chrysalis about to reveal an adult insect - so it includes surface detail of the wings which should print well in some of the finer detail materials. Probably look best in some of the darker metals - maybe polished bronze, but would probably look good in transparent plastic too. Please note that the Shapeways order doesn't include an earring hook - it's in the rendered images & Youtube animation for visualisation only... ~ right click in the youtube window & click 'loop' ~
