This stunning choker is inspired by the primary structure of human beta-endorphin, a natural opioid that gives a morphine-like (natural) high. I made each of the 31 amino acids of this polypeptide as a separate link, joining them together at the peptide bonds.

The result is a gorgeous artwork, worthy of formal wear, and a charming conversation piece. Perfect for a special occasion.

The sterling silver necklace closes with an easy-squeeze lobster clasp and is adjustable between 13 and 16 inches. It can be customized to any length. This item is made-to-order. Because of the work involved in this piece, please allow a week or two for delivery.

Each is packaged in a recycled gift box and includes an informational card about endorphins.

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.
