mobius: charm necklace

2016 / symbolic necklace for my girlfriend, cast in white gold by a combined technique of 3D printing and 'lost wax' casting using Shapeways, then finished at Cresalia Jewelers. The challenge was in taming the unruly nature of a Mobius Strip: an 'unbreakable' endless loop with curious geometric properties. A path traced on its surface always leads back to the same point despite traversing both sides. If cut down its middle, creates a longer strip with more twists. If cut again, it forms new interlocking rings.
