These unusual earrings are inspired by the spiked form of ragweed pollen. The hard outer coat of a pollen grain makes it robust enough to survive transport by wind, water and insects, but when it lands on the pistil of a flower, it willingly gives up its genetic material to fertilize the flower ovules. Unfortunately, pollen grains are also highly allergenic to many humans, as springtime hay fever sufferers well know.

The bronze, brass and silver jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The ragweed pollen earrings are left unpolished after casting to preserve fine detail.

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.

Earrings shown in photos are brass. The earrings are 1 cm in diameter, and each earring weighs 4.2 g.
