The nodulated root earrings celebrate the process of nitrogen fixation upon which all animal life is dependent. Inside the root nodules, specialized microorganisms catalyze the conversion of atmospheric nitrogen gas to DNA, amino acids, vitamins, hormones and many other nitrogen-containing metabolites required by the plant. In return for the gift of fixed nitrogen, the plant provides the bacteria with photosynthetic sugars, so everyone's happy. You can show your appreciation for this symbiotic relationship between plant and microbe with these divine root nodule earrings.

The roots are 2 cm in length below the loop and each earring weighs 2.5 g.

The earrings are 3D printed in solid sterling silver, brass or bronze and finished with nickel-free sterling silver, gold-plated silver or rose gold-plated silver hooks to match.
