So wonderful! The quality is excellent. I wear it every day and get compliments on it. I have two african dwarf frogs, and although this is an african clawed frog, it looks just like them. Adorable!

About

Designs for Scientists

Prior to designing jewelry, I was a postdoctoral researcher in biochemistry. In my scientific life, I had the opportunity to work with many different organisms including Arabidopsis, arugula, sage, slugs, locusts, flea beetles and caterpillars. I appreciate how scientists identify with their organism. At Ontogenie, I design jewelry and objects that are inspired not only by the symbiosis between scientist and organism, but also by the intricate and iconic patterns and shapes that can only be found in nature. The designs in my shop are sculpted by hand in the virtual world of my computer and then created with 3D-printing technology in silver, bronze, brass, stainless steel or nylon plastic, one piece at a time.

If you would like to learn more about my designs and my process, you can visit my website at http://ontogenie.com or follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

All of my designs are achieved by 3D-printing combined with lost wax casting. If I have the piece you want in stock, I can usually ship it the next day. If it isn't in stock, please allow 3 weeks for printing until I can ship it.

All of my pieces are gift wrapped in Ontogenie recycled paper boxes containing shredded wood and finished with twine.
