You’ve Got It In You, Now Wear It: Chromosome Jewelry

by Hazel Chua

Genes, chromosomes, DNA. We all know it’s complicated, but who knew it could be so beautiful?

Electron microscopist Louise Hughes is passionate about microscopy and the genetic structures that she has studied and observed. And now they are available to wear as jewelry, as Louise has begun a Kickstarter campaign to get these pieces of jewelry in production.

DNA JewelryRewards include postcards featuring Louise’s microscopy artwork (told you she was passionate about it!), rings, pendants, earrings, and cufflinks that are available in XX, XY, XXY, or triplet of chromosome 21 designs. There’s also a ring available that features all of the chromosomes in a single piece.
