The foundation of all human thought, neurons are beautifully complex. You have ~100 billion already... and now you can have one more. From dendrite to axon terminal, the design is structurally correct, and includes details like the nucleus and Schwann cells. The laser-cut, rhodium plated pendant measures about 1 1/4" from the top to bottom and comes with an 18" sterling silver chain.
This necklace celebrates the ribosome, the marvelous molecular machine at the heart of all terrestrial life! The ribosome is responsible for taking a cell's genetic instruction set and turning it into proteins, the primary functional components of the cell.
Every aspect of this pendant's design has significance. It is cast in two parts, representing the large and small subunits of the ribosome. The small subunit can be lifted to reveal transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules within, as they link amino acids to the growing polypeptide (represented by a length of chain extending from the bottom of the ribosome). The loop of chain from which the pendant hangs represents a strand of messenger RNA (mRNA), entering and exiting the ribosome through channels in its small subunit.
The role of the ribosome and its precursors in the early history of life is a great mystery, and the subject of much speculation. Whatever this role was, it was certainly one of deep significance!
"Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can. Because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself."
Here may be the only piece of jewelry in the world that attempts to capture our universe in such exquisite detail. In this magnificent pendant, we use an artist's logarithmic scale conception of the local region of the universe, with the Solar System at the center, inner and outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, and nearby galaxies.
Our miniature universe is microprinted on a translucent disc within a steel and glass locket. When worn, it looks like a stylized black pendant with a dark interior, matching everything. But when you hold it up to the light, incredible detail bursts into appearance. The graphic was created by Pablo Carlos Budassi, Mendoza, Argentina (G+, Facebook) and recently went viral online. The pendant comes with a heavyweight gunmetal chain, available in a short length (18 inches) or long length (32 inches).View full product details
Tardigrades, also known as the "water bears," are possibly the most resilient known animal. They can withstand temperature ranges from 1 K (−458 °F; −272 °C) to about 420 K (300 °F; 150 °C), pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for more than 30 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and go on with their lives.
While we homo sapiens are more physically fragile, the human spirit has walked through fire and yet endured. This endearing tardigrade pendant is a reminder of resiliency, stubbornness, and strength of will. It is extremely scientifically accurate, carefully crafted from pewter, and given an antique finish. It will last a lifetime. It comes hung on your choice of an 18 inch or 32 inch heavyweight gunmetal chain.

The Fibonacci sequence, also known as the golden rectangle, is the basis for some of nature's most amazing creations. Besides being useful for art, architecture, financial market analysis, and various data algorithms, it is also spectacularly beautiful. This exquisite, gold or silver-rhodium plated Fibonacci pendant measures 1" by 5/8" and is hung from your choice of a gold, silver or non-tarnishing steel chain. (Rhodium, by the way, is a non-tarnishing silver-colored precious metal.)
