Do some nucleic acid modeling.
- Double-helix structure makes for a very singular piece of jewelry.
- 1" pendant hangs from an 18" chain.
- We think Rosalind Franklin would have rocked this.
Name something that your parents gave you which you can't return. No, not a hand-knitted sweater. (Although we don't recommend returning those either. It's best just to leave them in the back of a drawer to pull out during visits.) The answer we were looking for was your DNA. You are a unique combination (unless you're an identical twin, triplet, member of a clone army determined to take over the world, etc.) of your parents' genetic material. All those little Gs, Cs, As, and Ts stitched together in a pattern that spells out you. In a pattern that sounds something like a cat with a hairball if you try to pronounce it. Which is why it's best just to admire it. Quietly.
This 3D double helix pendant, made from base metal coated with pure silver, is around 1" long. The silver-plated chain is 18" long.
For our customers with nickel allergies: the pendant is made from base metal but it and the chain are plated with pure silver (not Sterling).
