Nervous System

Parallel Earrings

$40.00


A minimal and lightweight pair of earrings that mimics the dichotomous venation patterns of ferns and ginkgos. Unlike the closed cell venation networks of most plants, ferns and ginkgos exhibit a unique open pattern where roughly parallel veins fork repeatedly producing a tree-like structure defined by Y shaped nodes. This pattern was grown by a computer simulation of leaf venation and etched from a sheet of stainless steel.
