Absolutely perfect! I had been eyeing the nucleic acid necklaces but wanted something a little smaller, and this turned out exactly as I had hoped! I've already gotten several compliments on it. Our initial communication to set up the order was a little inconsistent, but once we finalized the plan everything was great, and it was even shipped ahead of schedule. Thanks Raven!!

Inspired by a Molecular Muse

While living in the heartbreak of a ended relationship, I wanted to know why I felt so bad. I searched for answers in books about neurotransmitters and learned about the molecules responsible for our moods and drives. While half-asleep, staring at a page, I thought: wouldn't serotonin make a pretty necklace? The idea of having a reminder that happiness is created from the actions of neurotransmitters in my head appealed to me. After an unsuccessful search online for any molecule necklaces, I decided that I needed to learn to make my own.

While wearing my serotonin necklace, I received many suggestions that I should make them to sell. At the time I was training to be a science communicator and selling jewelry was not in my radar view. It was an experience in a GAP store at the mall, where a teenager asked me to explain the meaning of my serotonin necklace, that I realized that mt serotonin necklace is science communication. I began to make other molecules that I found to be beautiful and inspiring. In 2005, I created Made With Molecules.

I've found that my jewelry fills a few niches. It is perfect for science-philes, like me, who want symbols of ideas, concepts, or emotions in a molecular language. It also appeals to people who aren't necessarily hard-core-science-geeks, who appreciate the shapes and the meanings. My jewelry is also perfect for scientists to give as gifts, sharing a bit of their love of science in a shiny, user-friendly form.

I am constantly adding to the collection. If you have an idea, please let me know!

    I started making molecule jewelry while a postdoc in a biophysics lab at UC Berkeley. I had received a Ph.D. in molecular biophysics & biochemistry from Yale University. I am now living off-grid in a tiny old cane shack on beautiful Hawai'i Island.

Custom and personalized orders

I can make custom molecule jewelry, if the molecule will work in my style. Prices start around $150 and the process usually takes 4-6 weeks.

Care instructions

Most of my jewelry is high quality, solid sterling silver. It is specially formulated to resist tarnish, but, like all silver, will tarnish. You can minimize oxidation by storing silver jewelry in a bag or box away from air and heat. Regularly wearing the jewelry can help rub off tarnish. I allow the silver serotonin necklace I wear daily to develop a bit of a patina. It's OK to wear your sterling silver jewelry in the shower.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your order will come packaged in a cute, recycled paper gift box with a little card explaining what the molecule represents. I tie it with a ribbon, making a pretty package for gifting - no addition wrapping required.

If you are shipping directly to the gift recipient, I'm happy to include a card with your gift message. Just let me know when you order.
