clove spice molecule ornament - eugenol

Description

Each holiday season, I make a limited-edition molecule ornament. I choose molecules that have some association with the holidays. For 2016, I chose to make eugenol, which is found in cloves and other holiday spices.

Cloves are an essential part of the warming spices that make our holiday flavors. The strong and wonderful smelling clove oil is mostly eugenol, which has been used for centuries for toothaches. The eugenol is so abundant in the oil, that isolating it was the first (easy) project given to us in college chemistry lab.

Cloves are the dried flower buds of <i>Syzygium aromaticum</i>, a tree in the Myrtle family. Bright red wen harvested, they turn brown when dried. That little bud packs a lot of flavor, and smell. Remember those pomanders made with cloves stuck into the rinds of oranges?

Other holiday spices, like cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla also contain some eugenol.

This limited edition holiday ornament is part of my annual series of limited edition molecules that are especially meaningful during the holiday season. It is about 3 inches long, made from pewter, and hangs from a copper-color satin ribbon.

My original design is cast in lead-free pewter by the awesome folks at ToadLand casting - USA made! It's about 3 inches long and comes on an off-white ribbon. It comes with a little info card and packaged a gift box. A wonderful holiday gift!

The ornament itself is beautifully crafted, and the presentation was exquisite. It felt like opening a gift for Christmas! I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from this seller again.

Beautiful piece. Raven even did a bit of customization to better suit my individual tastes. I"m a cannabis educator and can't wait to show it off by wearing it during my workshops. A bonus for me, is that it was made in Hawaii. I look forward to wearing it for many years to come. XXOO

I've looked longingly at these earrings (and the other green tea-themed item - "green tea molecule EGCG" necklace) for years now. When Raven had a sale recently, I could no longer resist! These theanine earrings are stunning and I've had countless compliments on them, especially when paired with the EGCG necklace. Because I study Japanese tea ceremony, this set is personally very meaningful. It also functions as a fantastic (and elegant) conversation piece. These pieces really have heft to them; you can feel their weight, nothing flimsy about this jewellery! Big thanks to Raven for her gorgeous work and also for the lovely way it was packed. Cannot recommend enough.

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.
