The Moebius Strip pendant shown above is available in various materials: from colored plastics (such as the photo), over brass and bronze to silver, gold, and more.
he Moebius Strip is a mathematical classic, and even for pendants it has been used for many decades at least. Our version of the Moebius Strip pendant, however, is special. Its shape is defined by a mathematical formula!
The Moebius Strip is one of the most famous shapes in mathematics, but also famous in real life. Its extraordinary “one-sided” shape stands for “infinity”, “everlasting friendship”, etc. The Moebius Strip may be realized by taking a long rectangular strip of paper, turn one of the two shorter edges by 180 degrees, and then glue the two shorter edges. In this way, when starting to “walk” at the glueing position on one side of the object, and continuing to walk on that side, one eventually ends up at the same point of the Moebius strip, but on the other side! Without having crossed the boundary of the shape… Thus, the Moebius strip actually only has a single side!!!
Note that the colors provided by the Shapeways renderings are far from perfect. For some of the materials, we are able to provide real photos so that you may see how they actually look.

It was back in the 1872 Göttingen, Germany, at a meeting of the scientific society. Alfred Clebsch and Felix Klein each presented a model of a cubic surface. Our modern versions of these historical - nowadays quite famous - sculptures are the main figures in our photo.
