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 a lobster clasp and is adjustable between about 13 and 16 inches. It can be customized to any length, but please note that the design works best when worn as a choker or short necklace.

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