Triple Torus Pendant

Not available for purchase.

PRODUCT STORY
This pendant fuses math and art: at its heart is a lovely computed object called a minimal surface, brought to life as a wearable sculpture.

It's manufactured by 3D printing directly in metal, using a composite of steel and bronze that is tough enough for industrial applications and takes a rich weathered patina. Ships with a black satin cord, stands up to any amount of handling -- and it gets it. I Couldn't put mine down for a week.

I've long wanted to honor the beauty of these deeply mathematical forms in jewelry, and I think this is my best yet.

It looks like an abstract/modern art shape of a woman. No one I know would ever wear this.

Gorgeous and unique, but how big is it? I'd pay that and more for a piece of size, but if it is too tiny to show up when worn, I wouldn't buy.

Finally a reasonable priced item of great quality. I love the concept of the piece. My only problem: It looks a bit too phallic. That is what will keep me from buying it. DARN!

It looks like yin and yang. I think this is a pendant with a lot of interest.

It's beautiful and symmetrical! I also like that it comes with a satin cord instead of the traditional chain.

I am in love with this one! It is beautiful, flowing, unique! I have to say that I am amused that one commenter found it to be "shape of a woman" and another said that it is "phallic" LOL! Can't wait to buy it!

Interesting. That thing hanging out the bottom is more than a little disturbing, especially from the back view.

I love that it moves a little, like a worry-bead! Plus,I could add an actual bead on the hollow tip, hmm -

Math and art- two of my favorite subjects,and a nice combination it is! How nice it would look on a plain turtleneck sweater.I'm sure it;s fun to play with while you're standing in line.I,definitely,could see me wearing one! (Hint-hint)

I really love this, I don't get why it's not available for purchase. i've certainly seen stupider things cost more so...
