These earrings depict an important anatomical structure on the leaf surface of many plants, the glandular trichome. Glandular trichomes are common among members of the mint family, i.e, basil, peppermint and rosemary, as well as in Cannabis sativa. Essential oils and other secondary metabolies like tetahydrocannabinol (THC) are stored in the spherical head of the trichome. These molecules act primarily as a defense against small herbivores like insects, but they tend to have an attractive effect on larger herbivores like humans.

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. They are lightly polished after casting to give it 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.

Each earring measures 1.8 cm in diameter and weighs approximately 3.8 g.

Matching pendant is available at: http://etsy.me/2mTX6O1
