This bracelet is inspired by the interesting architecture of the chloroplast thylakoid membranes. The chloroplast is the site in the plant leaf where photosynthesis takes place, converting light energy to sugar. Within the chloroplast, the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis occur in the thylakoid membranes. The thylakoids are arranged as stacks of membranes (the grana) that are connected by intergranal or stroma thylakoids to form one cohesive compartment.
3D printed steel is a very strong material and does not bend or flex, so please choose your size carefully. To determine your size, measure your wrist above the wrist bone with a tape measure and consult this chart.

Extended wear of a gold plated steel bracelet may result in some wear of the plating on the inside of the bracelet, exposing the steel underneath. 3D-printed steel contains a small amount of copper which can in certain cases turn your skin green. This is normal and harmless and the discoloration should wash off with soap and water.
