Colors, Close Up

We know the sunny look of yellow, blue's sky-like hue, and leafy green. But they look different at the molecular level, as Carrie Parker's necklaces show us. Inspired by her parentsóa chemist and a science teacheróCarrie geeks out on the molecular geometry of three pigment colors with her acrylic necklaces. She laser-cuts each one in the shape of the essential compound that makes it appear to our eyes as yellow, blue, or green.

Based on the symmetric complex organic pigments Yellow 139, Phthalo Blue, and Phthalo Green, they make distinctive gifts for artists, science teachers, stylish nerds, and molecule-loving moms. Both hang from 18" sterling silver chains. Handmade in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
