Product Description
These earrings are based on the newly discovered cellular shape referred to as a "scutoid." As described in Nature Communications 9: Article Number 2960 in July 2018, as organisms grow and develop, it is necessary for their epithelial cells to bend to accomodate complex three-dimensional structures. This bending is accomplished using a novel, never-before-described shape related to prisms. Because of their novel shape, scutoids are able to pack closely to each other as well as bend. These earrings also pack together, a dazzling trick to show your science nerd friends the next time you meet in the local pub for a few beers.

Earrings do not ship from Shapeways with earring hooks. You will need to purchase and attach them yourself. The earrings are 1.3 cm below the loop and 0.6 cm wide. Each earring is solid metal and weighs approximately 3 g.
