Left hand not showing up when sliced with slicer.

This is a remix of a model that has been around for a long time with LOTS of makes (not on this one in particular, but on the original and many other remixes). What slicer is having trouble? I'd advise trying a different one.

I also just uploaded a fixed version that might work better.

Is that bronze filament? How did you polish it?

No bronze filament on this. The one in the picture was printed in ABS, then vapor polished, and investment cast. Instead of the typical wax, we just burnt out the plastic part. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Investment_casting

One suggestion,
orient the hole from left to right and make it large enough to pass the chain (and the end loop) thru it. This would allow you to eliminate the jump ring.

Good call. Added one. The forward facing loop was intentional for some of the experiments we have planned, but the sideways one is probably a lot more useful for people that want to just print and wear. I made the loop a little bigger on the sideways facing model.

I personally have a aversion to jump rings. They often open and the chain and piece become separated.
