Thinking Gal's Jewelry

Over-think accessories the fun way with nerd-tastic pendants decked out with science class doodles. Handmade by self-proclaimed nerdy husband-and-wife team, Tiffany and Kevin Ard, its pattern illustrates the synaptic gap between brain cells.

"Everytime you think, learn, talk or remember, your brain cells send a signal from one to the next like a supercharged row of dominos," says artist Tiffany Ard. "Every time a cell receives a message, the information crosses the synaptic gap!"

Inspired by Ard's Nerd Flashcards. Handmade of sterling silver in Georgia. Each comes with a card describing your science jewelry.

Tiffany Ard

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. collection

    Comments about MIND THE GAP PENDANT NECKLACE:

    My spouse gave this to me as a Christmas gift. I teach biopsychology and love this necklace. (Some of my students asked if I was mad at my husband for getting me this "weird thing".)

    I like the size as it's large enough to see the details. However, I too found it strange that it has a pronounced curve. I think I would have preferred a slightly thicker and flat pendant.

    Nonetheless, it's unique and I love the fact that it gives me an opportunity to talk about neuroscience!

              It's hard to find a great gift for the brilliant girl in your life. The ordinary doesn't quite cut it.

              But when you can find a delightfully nerdy and tasteful gift, it is a real joy. The perfect valentines day gift.

                  Comments about MIND THE GAP PENDANT NECKLACE:

                  It doesn't look anything like the picture. It is larger than advertized, curved severely, and the features are larger and clumped together. It might just be the one I recieved, but it is disappointing that the artist can't keep it consistent.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Very well timed delivery, sooner than expected.

                      Gave this as a gift for a dear friend who works in a neurosurgeon's office and she LOVED it. I was thrilled to find it. This, like all the Uncommon Goods items I bought, is unique, beautiful and well made.
