Yesterday I received this very lovely Neuron necklace in the mail from Etsy seller somersault 18:24 and its gorgeous! I discovered Somersault on Twitter not long ago and it was so great to meet someone with the same goal as I have for Shenova.
About the makers, Idoya & Luk:
" Jewelry and Science: Using jewelry to spread science awareness"
At somersault18:24 we care very much about science and what it can do to make our world a better place. We are scientists for as long as we can remember and want to give science the attention it deserves...
We use science inspired jewelry as a trigger to start conversations about science and as such spread awareness. It is a small step, but we believe it its effect and impact.
Our main expertise lays in molecular biology, cell biology, cancer, developmental biology and other basic biomedical disciplines. We generate declarative scientific art or more artistic impressions of various themes such as apoptosis, drug delivery, signaling pathways, etc. However, we are very open to go beyond this."
Wow, what's not to love? There is a lot of science inspired jewelry out there, but these guys are doing it better. I especially adore the fact that they have a similar mission to Shenova designs-- spreading the science love! Education through art? Fabulous! One of my favorite necklaces has to be the 3d printed brass Bacteriophage (" Wear the Bacteriophage Necklace and we guarantee that the result will be infectious." - Brilliant!
I paired the neuron necklace with, ofcourse, my Neuroscience Dress :)
