Some like it hot. And I'm one of them.

Capsaicin is the hot molecule from chili peppers that makes our face flush, our eyes bulge, or skin sweat. Why do we torture ourselves? Capsaicin leads to the release of endorphins, those pain-killing pleasure molecules.

For spiciest among us, I've commemorated the shape of the capsaicin molecule in sterling silver. The result is a bold necklace, sure to be an attention grabber.

The pendant is about 2 inches long, is made of quality recycled/reclaimed silver, and is attached to a sterling silver chunky link chain, adjustable in length up to about 19.5 inches. It comes in a recycled gift box with a card about capsaicin.

Frequently asked questions about molecularmuse

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.
