The Human Chromosome Jewelry Collection is Inspired by DNA

Human Chromosome Jewelry Collection is easily one of the geekiest, if not the geekiest, jewelry sets ever made. Electron microscopist Louise Hughes created cufflinks, earrings, pendants and rings all inspired by the XX, XY and XXY chromosomes inside of our bodies. The result is a set of jewelry that looks as if it was made using minimal effort, at least to the untrained eye.

In addition to creating the Human Chromosome Jewelry Collection, Hughes has also made microscopy art and even a calendar that was sold on her Etsy store. She is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter to help get the collection off the ground and to fulfill orders. Hughes is asking for $1,807 (1,100 GBP), and a donation of $49 (30 GBP) secures you a pendant.
