Snowflakes are unique. Now so are snowflake ornaments!

There are both Snowflakes and Snowballs.

Snowflakes are one-piece, with a hook and unique serial number incorporated into the design. So they are easy to display!

Snowballs are formed by three intersecting snowflakes, that fit together to form a Snowball.

They are all printed out of PLA, for ecologically friendly snowflake ornaments!

These snowflake ornaments are designed to be mailed flat.

The Snowballs require simple assembly, to slot the three snowflakes together. The assembly instructions, with diagrams, are included in the reward!

I created these because, between the wind and the temperature, these are the only interesting snowflakes we're going to see here in South Florida. And since people seem to really like them, I set up this project to share them!

Each Snowflake and Snowball comes with a unique serial number, and signed certificate of authenticity.

Risks and challenges

The software to generate the snowflakes is complete. We have two 3D printers that have been printing 'test' snowflakes, ready to go!

The risk is that we get too many orders to fulfill by the holidays. So we've limited the number of rewards to what we're absolutely sure that we can produce and mail. If we get more interest, we'll add additional rewards with later delivery dates.
