The nodulated root earrings celebrate the process of nitrogen fixation upon which all animal life is dependent. Inside the root nodules, specialized microorganisms catalyze the conversion of atmospheric nitrogen gas to DNA, amino acids, vitamins, hormones and many other nitrogen-containing metabolites required by the plant. In return for the gift of fixed nitrogen, the plant provides the bacteria with photosynthetic sugars, so everyone's happy. You can show your appreciation for this symbiotic relationship between plant and microbe with these divine root nodule earrings.

The jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The nodulated root 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 roots are 2 cm in length below the loop and each earring weighs 2.5 g.
