What more universal symbol of science is there than a carbon atom? Atoms are the building blocks of everything -- the stuff of stars and humans alike. They hold relevance to biology, climate science, physics, and basically any field studying the natural universe.
This carbon atom necklace is both subtle and striking. A dark grey Swarovski pearl on a hand-wrapped silver wire makes the nucleus, and the 1 1/4" pendant comes hung on an 18" sterling silver chain. It matches everything, from t-shirts to prom dresses.
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.)
"She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."

Hand-stamped bronze and aluminum cuff bracelets. Over time, the bronze will develop a lovely patina; rub with steel wool to remove the patina if you prefer. The aluminum silver will never tarnish. Both will last a lifetime. Lightweight, adjustable, fits most wrists. Measures 1/4" in width, and 2 1/2" in diameter at the widest point.
If you work with, study, or have genetic material, then this DNA necklace is for you. The rhodium-plated DNA pendant is slightly curved to add to the illusion of dimensionality and measures about 2 inches long. It comes on an 18 inch sterling silver chain. If you look closely, you will see the major and minor grooves, as well as a representation of base pairing.
Be the envy of the lab with these delightful T4 enterobacteria phages danging from your ears. And by danging, I mean they really look as if they are docked to your ears with their tail fibers, just as a real bacteriophage would dock to its bacterial host. Look closely and you'll see the vertex capsomeres, capsid proteins, whiskers, dsDNA, kneecap domain of long fibers, short tail fibers (spikes/pins), and more. Carefully crafted from pewter to be exceptionally detailed, these phages measure 2.7 cm high with hypoallergenic stainless steel hooks.
The chromosome is one of the most iconic forms in the realm of cell biology -- a carefully packaged matrix of DNA, RNA, and protein. This chromosome is depicted in the phase of mitosis known as metaphase, when its DNA has been replicated, and packaged into two "sister" chromatids in preparation for cell division (mitosis). At this phase of mitosis, microtubules connect at the chromosome's centromere, making the steel cord part of the design of the necklace.
The antiqued pewter pendant has a satisfying, but not excessive weight. It is the most unique and true-to-science chromosome necklace around. Great for wearing to the lab, classroom, conferences, and presentations.
"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
