Petri Dish Brooch with Tiny Microbes

$48.00 NZD

This fun brooch by Oh Pluto depicts a petri dish filled with the cutest of microbes. Each brooch is unique in its appearance and no two brooches are alike! 

These brooches were created in part as a way to use up extra acrylic materials and minimise material wastage in Oh Pluto's jewellery manufacturing. The results are a unique and colourful accessory to any outfit.


  • Hypoallergenic and tarnish resistant: All metal findings are 304 or 316 Stainless Steel
  • Backed with a stainless steel brooch pin with locking clasp
  • The microbes are set against a 3.5cm (1.4 inch) disk of clear acrylic to resemble a petri dish
  • Laser engraved and cut from lightweight acrylic materials then hand-painted 
  • Handmade in Australia


All Oh Pluto pieces are handmade by owner and designer Louise van der Werff based in Melbourne, Australia. Oh Pluto is Louise's opportunity to combine her passion for Science and the Arts to create fun and unique jewellery that celebrates all things science!
