The pioneering designers who are shaking up British jewellery design

Alexander Davis DNA Pendant. When a DNA pendant is commissioned, Davis takes a blood sample from the wearer and their DNA sequence is analysed. The combination of gemstones corresponds to a unique part of their DNA.


Ancient boundaries are the strongest

GENETIC BOUNDARIES: 'A pioneering study into [Britain's] genetic heritage ... shows that up to 40 per cent of [British] DNA may be from Germanic ancestors, and not the Vikings, thanks to the Anglo-Saxon migrations in 450-600AD. The project, carried out by Oxford University, is particularly interesting because it would seem that this genetic make-up bears out those old traditions and clichés about how [people] relate to each other. So the age-old rivalries between Devon and Cornwall – take…


Inferring expressed genes by whole-genome sequencing of cell-free plasma DNA


Digital agency Lifeblood has based its brand identity on the DNA sequences of its founders. Setting out to visualise “digital made human”, agency partners Dominic Santalucia and Travis Weihermuller had their own DNA analysed by a lab, then selected sequences that were unique to each of them. These sequences were then used to form a pattern of lines, which is applied across the agency’s branding.


The Ust'-Ishim femur from Siberia, an anatomically modern human from 43-47,000 years ago, left enough DNA to be fully sequenced, including the 2% Neanderthal portion.

What’s so sacred about geometry, anyway?

This is one example geometry is being shown. This piece of geometry is natural and proves that geometry does not have to look so saturated and fullfilled just like yellena james. Yellena James Sacred Geometry, the golden ratio or mean and phi point ratio The same ratio Vitruvius saw in the human body – 1 to PHI (1.618) – exists in every part of nature, from swimming fish to swirling planets. This divine ratio, or divine proportion, has been called the building block of all life.
