Announcement   MicroPendants on Etsy offers jewelry featuring our unique pendants that contain nearly 3,500 characters of microscopic text in less than a 1/2 inch area.

We fill the pendant's inside area with one of the many selections from our text library. Selections include all Signs of the Zodiac, Inspirational Expressions, Political expressions, and even the Digits of PI.

Posters with millions of microscopic characters are now available!

Wear something personal or of interest around your neck and enjoy the reactions of disbelief that your pendant contains your text selection and not just some sort of optical illusion.

Or just Eat some Eye Candy. The text selections that repeat, such as the Political and Inspirational expressions, make really cool patterns.

We feature various necklaces and earrings as well as pendants sold on their own.

The printing process used to create our items is specialized and isn't the sort of thing that can be done on a standard laser printer.

YOU SHOULD HAVE at least a 20x loupe or magnifier to comfortably read the pendant text. Many of our listings offer a magnifier if you need one. A standard magnifying glass laying around the house might only be 2x or so, and isn't much help.

Note that all of our materials are lead-free and our pendants are made in the USA.


INEXPENSIVE 1ST CLASS DOMESTIC SHIPPING on all handmade items. We also now have faster processing times.

Insurance: Stated shipping fees do Not include insurance. If you want your item to be insured, please let us know before or directly after purchasing it.

Priority Mail / Express Mail: We can also ship via USPS Express Mail or USPS Priority Mail. Place your order for free 1st class shipping - and let us know you would like Express or Priority Mail instead. We will then send you a PayPal invoice right away for the difference in postage.

International: International shipping is now available.

About

Tiny Text - Huge Impact!

Over the years I've developed a fascination (maybe a minor obsession) with just how fun can be had arranging lots and lots of really small text content in interesting places. We're not talking about printing that can be done on a regular laser printer, but instead we use very specialized printing processes.

It all started about seven years ago with custom microscopic text messages on microscope slides. To read it required a microscope, not just a handheld magnifier. The highlight was a doctor ordering one to propose to his doctor fiancé. Very cool. But I also learned that the concept was likely to have a limited audience.

Move forward a couple of years to a collision of "nerdy" and "fashionable" which is the primary line of jewelry found in our MicroPendants shop on Etsy, and our other shops, featuring about 3,500 characters of nearly microscopic text in a pendant with an area less than 1/2 an inch. We've incorporated these unique text pendants into many exciting configurations such as leather necklaces, stainless steel necklaces, rhodium earrings, and gold earrings. Or the text pendants can be purchased on their own.

We offer magnifiers, called loupes, as optional accessories with our pieces so you can easily read the content, since a typical household magnifier isn't strong enough for most folks. Additionally, you get a postcard size version of the actual text.

More recently we've extended the microscopic text motif to our new text posters, most notably our The Six Million Digits of Pi poster which has almost 6 million pi digits printed even smaller than in our jewelry. And for our most recent offerings, check out our Glow in the Dark pieces, currently featuring digits of pi, but soon to feature many different text selections. We've broken our own rules to some extent with the glow in the dark pieces by making the text bigger so that it's readable either with a typical household magnifier, or no magnifier at all.

All of our items are truly unique and will not be found elsewhere. Unless of course you're on another site of ours, or a retailer who sells our products.
