Palaeolithic Barbie

Printed at 0.2mm layer height, eSun PLA+

I printed a dollie, Palaeolithic Barbie.

It's a piece that has become known as The Venus of Willendorf since its discovery in 1908; precisely what its function was, nobody really knows. Many guesses have been made.

I was originally planning to paint it all stoney, but now I'm tempted to just leave it in its shiny black plastic. The digital model has a pitted stone surface texture that doesn't show to best advantage when printed in relatively low resolution (0.2mm) as here, but as a Future Age representation of a Stone Age artefact, I'm not sure that's a really big deal.

Zig-Zag Hoops

Here's another pair of hoop earrings, a very simple geometric design this time.

These ones are designed to hang perpendicular to the ears, face on to the world.

They're available in bronze or silver at

Clockwork Hoop Earrings

I designed another pair of earrings to be 3d printed and cast by Shapeways.

The diameter of the main body of the earring is about 25mm.
