The Saccharomyces cerevisiae (budding yeast) earrings are inspired by an organism indispensable for baking bread, brewing beer and making wine. Yeast is also an important model organism for scientists. In addition to being easy to grow, Saccharomyces is also easy to genetically transform and is used for the production of recombinant proteins. These proteins include biopharmaceuticals necessary for the treatment of diabetes, hepatitis and anemia as well as proteins studied in many other scientific disciplines besides medicine.

The Saccharomyces model depicts yeast cell division, called 'budding.' The larger mother yeast cell is giving rise to a smaller daughter cell. The mother cell shows budding scars from previous daughter cells.

The jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The Saccharomyces jewelry is lightly polished after casting to give the piece 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.

This elegant earring model measures 1.7 cm below the earring loop and each earring weighs 4.5 g.
