Inspired by microbes

I have been really suprised by just how much I have enjoyed  making accessories inspired by microbes and cell biology.

After years working in a microbiology lab, then several as a science teacher , I  left  my career behind for stay at home motherhood and thought I had left microbes and science behind , but recently I have been getting lot of science, geeky , microbes and biology inspired inspiration.
The newest additions are these cell biology inspired brooches in their own little petri dishes!

I have used Liberty print fabric and beads for this cell brooch

This one has a lovely Vintage button sewn onto felt to represent a cell nucleus

I have also designed and made necklaces like this one above

This brooch has the added texture of mohair wool 

They are a great addition to the rings that are already in my Folksy shop
