Description

This ring is a shiny, molecular reminder to "follow your bliss."

Anandamide plays many roles in our brains, including movement, appetite, pain, and memory. It is released in times of stress, and can make you feel that the world is gliding by and alter your sense of time. Some research suggests that it may be the source of the phenomenon known as Runner's High.

Scientists discovered anandamide while looking for the natural molecule that fits the receptor used by THC, the main active chemical in marijuana smoke. The name comes from ananda, the Sanskrit word for "bliss."

Not only does anandamide bliss-out our brains, it also helps us forget things. While, at first glance, that property may not seem very desirable, forgetting is actually an essential part of remembering. It is by sorting out what we need or don't need to remember that we learn and become wiser. (Anandamide reminds us: in some cases ignorance is bliss.)

For quite a while, I wanted to make an anadamide pendant. It was through playing with the design of a pendant, that I realized its long carbon tail would feel amazing curled around my finger, like the snake ring I had in Jr High. The notion delights me, and I love this little molecule on my hand.

The ring is made of solid sterling silver. It is modeled to a size 5.5 and can be gently bent to fit larger or smaller sizes. It comes in a little, recycled paper gift box with a tag about anandamide.

FAQs

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.
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.
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.
