The colonial green alga, Pediastrum, is the inspiration for this pendant. Pediastrum is a freshwater colonial alga that forms an orderly geometric structure with 4 to 164 cells. If the colony contains 16 or more cells, it forms concentric rings, giving the algal colony a star-like appearance. As cells age, they acquire multiple nuclei, as can be clearly seen in each cell of the pendant design. Pediastrum is also a type of plankton because it is not independently motile and simply floats in the water.

The jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The Pediastrum pendant 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 diameter of the pendant is 3 cm below the loop.
