The mathematical term for this object is spherical rhombicosidodecahedron. That's quite a mouthful, huh? This fascinating shape, which we call the DodecaBall, is also sometimes referred to as an expanded dodecahedron. What that means is that to create one you must start with a regular dodecahedron or icosahedron and move every face outward on an axis perpendicular to its orientation such that when new faces are created in the voids every edge has the exact same length. It's an Archimedean solid and this particular version is also projected orthographically onto a sphere, resulting in a surface that is smooth and facet-free.

The regular geometric construction of this piece combined with its smooth spherical surface gives it a unique look that is both mechanical and organic. As a pendant it is sure to turn heads.

    Good shipping time and great packaging! I've received larger 3D printed objects for cheaper, so I'm still trying to figure out if it's WORTH the price, but the vendor was very responsive and nice, so FULL POINTS for that. They also threw in a little gift, which I super appreciated. It make me really happy :) And these certainly work and roll between two flat surfaces smoothly! The math and science nerd side of me keeps poking its head up through the strongly arts and language ocean whenever I look at these :D

    This cuff goes with everything. It is exactly what I was looking for. I love the details and the artistic design. It feels really solid. I can see it is great for women and men, which is very hard to find in jewelry.
