Science jewelry Biohazard necklace fine silver pendant on leather cord. Handmade metal clay jewelry by Arctida.

As some of you know I work as a microbiologist at my day job. Over the years I've been working with a lot of dangerous bacteria and viruses: Streptococcus, Polio, HIV, Cholera, Hepatitis are just some of them... so it is only natural that I wanted to make a necklace for myself that looks like a Biohazard warning symbol, after all I'm surrounded by these signs at work I might as well wear one :) I finished this piece back in 2014 and since that time several of my colleagues and nerd friends ordered the same pendant so I thought it was time to list it in my shop as an addition to my Microbiology collection.

The pendant is made of solid silver (Fine Silver Precious Metal Clay pmc), partly oxidized to display the Biohazard symbol pattern and threaded on a black leather cord.

Oh and the blue bio-suit and mask you see on the first model pic is the actual protective gear/suit (informally known as "space suits") we use for some of the laboratory work :)
