This listing is for a stainless steel chai pendant necklace on a gunmetal chain. The pendant is designed and 3d printed in New York City.


Chai is the word for life in Hebrew. Chai charms are considered good luck in Jewish custom. There's nothing particular to Judaism in the chai symbolism (just celebrating the magic of life!), so anybody can wear them.

* this is my medium-sized chai. I have a smaller and a larger version.

* cool texture from the 3d print process

* stainless steel, bronze-infused with a slightly warm tone (nickel free). I also carry chais in sterling silver and other finishes. Other materials available via custom order with 4-6 weeks production time.

* steel chais come on a dark "gunmetal" chain to complement the low-key stainless steel metal. Stainless steel and fine metal chains available at an additional charge. Convo me for information.

TECHNICAL INFO: This charm was printed through shapeways.com. All my work is a little bit nerdy because I am! I designed this necklace using (the Mac beta version of) Rhinoceros3d and assembled the pieces at home. Shapeways.com fabricated the actual stainless steel, giving it its distinctive texture. More info on the material here: http://www.shapeways.com/materials/stainless_steel
