This beautiful pendant is inspired by the benthic foraminiferan Spiroloculina depressa. Foraminiferan are marine and freshwater protists that build exquisitely detailed shells, or 'tests.' Spiroloculina depressa is a species of foraminifera within the order Miliolida. The Miliolida are characterized by multi-chambered, porcelain-like tests composed of calcium carbonate.
The pendant measures 2.7 cm (1 inch) long below the loop and is 1.5 cm (0.6 inch) wide.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, bronze, brass or 14K goldplated brass and finished with a sterling silver, gold-plated silver or rose gold-plated silver anchor chain to match. In photos, pendant shown was printed in 14K goldplated brass
