Mendel's Peas by magpie-poet Mendel's Peas by magpie-poet
A small, and late, tribute to Domain of Darwin's Celebrating the Heroes of Science Contest. [link]

Gregor Mendel discovered the basic principles of heredity through his famous crossbreeding experiments with pea plants. [link] and [link]

One earring exhibits the dominant traits with its long stem and axial flower placement while the other exhibits the recessive short stem and terminal flower placement.

Craft wire, peridot, amethyst, moonstone.

I liked the idea but had a lot of trouble with the execution, so I'd love tips on a redo. That said, these are looking for sale, so if someone's interested, note me :)

Thank you. It's an often overlooked piece. Just sent it out to a genetics teacher this past weekend, so took awhile for it to find its niche. (Despite that it's an idea I'd like to revisit!)
