These stellar earrings are based on the colony structure of the freshwater diatom Asterionella. Single Asterionella cells are surrounded by tubular-shaped silicon shells. The individual cells, however, form a star-like colony formation with 8 to 20 other cells. The cells are anchored in the center by extracellular matter. Asterionella is one of the most abundant types of algae in freshwater environments.

The jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The Asterionella earrings are 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.

These elegant earrings are 2.4 cm in diameter below the loop and each earring weighs 1.5 g.
