These lovely earrings are based on the rosette developmental stage of Arabidopsis thaliana. Arabidopsis is the model organism of choice for many plant biologists. It is easy to grow, developing from seed to seed in approximately 6 weeks, and has a small yet completely sequenced genome. This humble weed, often found growing out of cracks in the pavement along a roadside, has greatly expanded our understanding of plant metabolism and physiology. It is a member of the Brassicaceae, the same plant family as cabbage, broccoli and wasabi.

The jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The Arabidopsis rosette earrings are lightly polished after casting to give them a smooth glossy texture.

To prevent waste and overstock, the jewelry is not made until you order. Please allow 3-4 weeks for printing and shipping. All items are gift-wrapped in original, recyclable Ontogenie packaging and then shipped insured by registered mail, worldwide.

The earrings will be assembled with nickel-free rose gold-plated, gold-plated or non-plated sterling silver earring hooks depending on whether you order the bronze, brass or silver earrings, respectively.

The individual rosettes are 1.7 cm x 1.9 cm, and each earring weighs 2.4 g.
