Ragweed Pollen Earrings
See shipping times for your region.
These unusual earrings are inspired by the spiked form of ragweed pollen. The hard outer coat of a pollen grain makes it robust enough to survive transport by wind, water and insects, but when it lands on the pistil of a flower, it willingly gives up its genetic material to fertilize the flower ovules. Unfortunately, pollen grains are also highly allergenic to many humans, as springtime hay fever sufferers well know.
The earrings are 1 cm in diameter, and each earring weighs 4.2 g.
The earrings are 3D printed in solid sterling silver, brass or bronze and finished with nickel-free rose gold-plated, gold-plated or non-plated sterling silver earring hooks to match. The earrings shown in the photo are brass.
