My New Etsy Store!!!!!!

I've finally opened my new store!!!! There are still more pieces to come, but I have some up for you to take a peek at.

This is the story behind the store (from my profile):

I am in the final stages of completing my PhD in neuroscience, and have created Morphologica to have a bit of fun with a normally serious subject.

During my research, I have discovered that science can be surprisingly beautiful- single cells viewed under a microscope, intricate networks of cells important for learning and memory, and even the curving structure of the brain itself. I have tried to capture some of this beauty in the Morphologica pieces, focusing on the shape or morphology of a variety of subjects studied in neuroscience.

Helical Symmetry- double helix DNA necklace

Pyramidal- pyramidal neuron necklace

Helical Symmetry- double helix DNA earrings
(these are my favourites- I definitely have to make some for myself!)

bRain- raindrop earrings with brain contours

I am still running my other store VintagePrincipessa, but creating pieces for Morphologica is really something that's more a reflection of my real interests....I have to confess that I'm not a big princess dress wearer ;) I am definitely a nerd though!


  1. Very cool Nikki - good luck!!

  2. I think they are great, nerdy and fashionable at the same time!

  3. I love the designs they look very striking! Good luck with the new store!

  4. They look really cool - will check out the new store when etsy maintenance is done..
