NEW: Brass pendant, plated in 22 Karat gold, .8" in diameter on 18" gold-filled chain, is part of a collection designed by the women of our jewelry program in partnership with Dawn Moran, a researcher at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. All of the pieces in the collection were inspired by plankton - an invisible but absolutely essential part of our world. Plankton are microscopic organisms drifting or floating in the sea or fresh water. Fish and marine mammals depend on plankton for their survival. Plankton also account for approximately 50% of the photosynthesis on this planet, are crucial for regulating the amount of carbon in our atmosphere. Similarly, women in many cultures - such as the ones our survivors come from - are sometimes and invisible in society. They are not seen, respected or appreciated, yet they play and essential role in the family, community, society and life itself.
The pendant was designed by Kalpana, inspired by the Radiolarian plankton.
