Express Your-Cell!

Master the science of accessorizing with nerd-tastic pendants decked out with science class doodles. Handmade by self-proclaimed nerdy husband-and-wife team, Tiffany and Kevin Ard, this pendant illustrates a charming cell membrane inspired by Ard's Nerd Flashcards.

"Cells are swell! All animal cells are eukaryotes (comes from the Greek "euk" meaning "super fancy" and "yote" meaning "word from science class") with a flexible outer membrane and a clearly-defined nucleus which is surrounded by cool things like cytoplasm, mitochondria, chloroplasts, Golgi apparatus and (my favorite) endo plasmic reticulum," says artist Tiffany Ard.

Handmade of sterling silver in Georgia. Each comes with a card describing your science jewelry.

Tiffany Ard

"Mom? I figured something out. I think I might be a nerd," said a young Tiffany Ard.

"Oh honey, don't say that!"

"My mom cried actual tears that night and worried out loud about my self-esteem, and where she went wrong, and why I couldn't love shopping and cute boys like all the other seventh-grade girls."

"But it's her own fault. She married the kind of guy who writes math formulas on the wall next to the toilet because he has an idea or a question and doesn't want to forget to look it up later. What did she expect? Cool children?"

Many years after artist Tiffany Ard discovered her inner-nerd, and after the birth of her own son, she started a line of Nerdy Baby products. As a new mom, Ard felt overwhelmed by all the products designed to make babies smart and successful, so she decided to take the "brilliant baby" idea to the extreme.

Tiffany lives in Georgia with her husband and two children.

    I work at a company that manufactures a lab instrument with a camera and a microscope. It's used for looking at cells, algae, and other fun stuff. It's a really fun necklace and it's made really well. I love it!

      Comments about CELL MEMBRANE NECKLACE:

      I wanted to find something unique for my daughter who would graduate with a biology degree. When I searched the internet and found this website, I knew I had found what I was looking for! After looking at the necklace and reading the reviews, I was convinced this would be the perfect gift for her and it WAS. Unsure of delivery time, I asked for expedited shipping (3-day delivery) and it arrived the next day! Perfect packaging and the product was as described. I gave to my daughter on graduation day and she has worn it every day since! She LOVES it!!! She has received numerous compliments on it too. THANK YOU UNCOMMON GOODS! This gift MADE my day and it made hers too!!!

        Bought this necklace as a gift for my niece who is in med school to become a doctor. The design is so fitting for her quirky, medical, cerebreal soul. The packaging is awesome,pouch for the necklace and the cell membrane card explaining the design - just wonderful. She is going to love this. I plan to add to her new collection with one of the other necklaces.

            My step-mother had just graduated from Medical School and it was difficult for me to think of a gift for her. Once I saw this, I knew it was perfect. She has received so many doctor gifts...silver stethoscope, a leather doctor's bag, office supplies with her name all over it; that I needed something that was original and still usable. This was the perfect gift.

                Our science-oriented teenage granddaughter has declared her intention (at least for now) to become a cell biologist.

                Who knew such an unlikely & totally appropriate treasure existed?

                That's why I love uncommongoods so much - every catalogue is an adventure, & I invariably find at least one item that's perfect for me, a friend or a relative....

                  I really like this whole product line, being the science nerd I am. I got the necklace for my sister in-law, who is a scientist. She loves the theme and detail of the pendant.
