Dreamy: DNA/RNA Friendship Necklaces
The contemporary answer to the mizpah, and much better than hanging an execution device around your neck.
Celebrate a friendship with someone with whom you pair well by giving your friend one side of the pair and keeping the other.
Genes are written in DNA and RNA molecules using a code of chemical units called bases. These bases form pairs, which is critical to their function. In DNA, A (adenine) pairs with T (thymine) and G (guanine) pairs with C (cytosine). In RNA, G pairs with C and A pairs with U (uracil).
The charms are based on shapes of the base molecules. They are strung onto a chain at the place where they would normally connect to the sugar-phosphate backbone.
This set of two necklaces comes with your choice of A-T, A-U, or G-C. The charms are about 3/4 inches long, are made with high-quality reclaimed/recycled sterling silver, and strung on a 16 in sterling silver snake chain.
These come in a pretty, recycled gift box and include an informational card about the molecules.
