This experiment was a success! The bacteria is growing nicely.
The perfect necklace for a microbiologist, or anyone interested in what can grow in a petri dish.
This approximately 3/4" diameter, fine silver [.999] necklace features our original design featuring bacteria growing in a petri dish on an organically shaped round, much like the melted wax spreads out beneath the pressure of the stamp. Each pendant is hand made using our stamp, then kiln fired, tumbled for strength, and polished. Because each charm is hand made one at a time, each one will have its own character.
Your handcrafted piece arrives in a sweet purple recycled gift box.
Did you know that PMC [precious metal clay] is a recycled eco-friendly product? During photo processing, silver is recovered. That silver is mixed in with a binder making a clay-like material that can be worked, rolled, shaped/formed, stamped, etc. It's then fired, during which the binder burns off, leaving fine silver [99.9% pure].
