An object's center of mass is the average position of the matter within it. Because of this, it is also the point around which the pull of gravity is focused. The position of an object's center of mass can greatly affect the way it moves and reacts to external stimuli. Race cars are designed to have very low centers of mass, which improves their stability. Runners, on the other hand, benefit from a higher center of mass because it increases the amount of kinetic energy they can put into each step.

By modifying the distribution of matter within an object, we can change the way gravity affects it. This is the core concept behind the Balance pendant. Juxtaposition between its visual and physical properties results in a unique, off-center look that makes a bold statement. Symmetry is overrated, anyway.

----------

PLEASE NOTE: The striations seen on the surface of the pendant is due to the 3D printing process. These lines are generally only visible on the steel versions. Due to variances in the production process, the direction and size of this pattern may vary or not appear at all.

    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.
