I made this charm to fit in my Medium Silver Living Locket from Origami Owl
. Based off the Public Domain "International Breastfeeding Symbol
" by Matt Daigle, it represents mother and child and helps me feel motivated to keep up all those late night nursing sessions. : )
This version of the charm is thin, so it can be layered with other charms (I also have a thicker version that won't let other charms lay on top of it
). I currently wear mine with birthstones for my two sons.
My original plan was to prototype in plastic and then print in the more expensive silver, but I ended up wearing Hot Pink Plastic or Alumide.
Finally, for the aspiring modelers out there, I outlined my process and linked to tutorials that helped me out quite a bit (many of them from Shapeways) on my blog-- Open Source – Creating a Breastfeeding Origami Owl Charm with Blender and Shapeways
