Material

This pendant is inspired by the african clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. Not just any frog, Xenopus is an important model organism for scientists. As a model organism, it is closely related to humans and other vertebrates and was even on board the space shuttle Endeavour to study reproduction in zero gravity. It is used extensively in developmental biology, cell biology, toxicology and neurobiology primarily because of its large, easy to work with embryo. In nature, it is an aggressive and robust predator and can easily invade new habitats and outcompete native frog species.

The pendant is 2.5 cm (1 in) long.

The pendant is 3D printed in 14K gold plated brass or sterling silver, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long gold plated silver chain or silver chain to match, and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions. 

Please note: the video is a computer animation designed to show all sides of the pendant and may not accurately represent the color of the metal.
