Dopamine is a neurotransmitter of desire. It acts in the pleasure center of our brains and motivates us to desire pleasurable activities like eating, sleeping, and kissing. Dopamine works overtime when we are in love, giving us strong feelings of desire and passion. Novel, adventurous activities and eating chocolate also increase dopamine.

This pendant is based on the dopamine molecule. It's about 1 1/4 inches long and made of solid sterling silver. I'm offering it on a black waxed cotton cord that closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp (in 16", 18", 20" or 22") or sterling silver snake chain (in 16", 18", or 20"). It is packaged in a recycled box and includes a information card about dopamine, making it a wonderful gift.

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.
