The colonial green alga, Pediastrum, is the inspiration for this pendant. Pediastrum is a freshwater colonial alga that forms an orderly geometric structure with 4 to 164 cells. If the colony contains 16 or more cells, it forms concentric rings, giving the algal colony a star-like appearance. As cells age, they acquire multiple nuclei, as can be clearly seen in each cell of the pendant design. Pediastrum is also a type of plankton because it is not independently motile and simply floats in the water.
The diameter of the pendant is 3 cm (1.2 in) below the loop.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, bronze or 14K gold plated brass and finished with a sterling silver, rose gold-plated silver or gold-plated silver anchor chain to match.
