In this article, I will show you how to create a pendant or charm from a Sketchup 3D model. The pendant can be manufactured in Sterling silver or one of several plastics.
There are thousands of such 3D models on the Google warehouse. For the purpose of this instructable, we will start from Robert Indiana's world-famous LOVE sculpture and convert it into a unique piece of jewelry.
In the following steps, I will will show you how to use free 3D software to create a digital model of the pendant and send the file to a 3D printing service provider who will make a real Sterling silver object from it.
As a low-cost alternative, you may also choose to have the pendant 3D-printed in one of several plastic materials. For a small contribution to my funding campain, you can also get the pendant directly from here
