Material

Modeled after the tick species Ixodes, a tiny arachnid that is responsible for causing Lyme disease infections throughout the Northern Hemisphere, this lapel pin is guaranteed disease-free. Ixodes is a member of the hard tick family (Ixodidae), distinguished by the fact that they are hard to crush. Ticks find their animal and bird hosts by scent, warmth and vibrations. After attaching to the host, they begin sucking blood and can become engorged up to 600 times their normal weight. This blood meal is necessary for their development and reproduction. Ticks can, however, transmit bacteria, viruses and protozoa to their hosts causing serious diseases including Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, meningoencephalitis and babesiosis, an infection similar to malaria.

The lapel pin is approximately 2 cm in diameter and ships with a locking pin back to attach it to a lapel or jacket.

The lapel pin is 3D printed in polished solid sterling silver, polished bronze, or 14K gold plated brass and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.

All orders totaling over 50 Euros ship free. Orders under 50 Euros cost 5.50 Euros for shipping.
