This design was created by unellenu using 3D design software.
The resulting 3D (.stl) file was then printed in 3D in wax, and then cast in sterling silver by Shapeways.
The silver is then finished and polished by Shapeways. It then had further polishing applied.
A combination of ancient techniques (casting) and modern high-tech methods are used in many of unellenu's creations,
with a respect for the past and a passion for utilising the best current technology.
