Ever been in love? Then you know what a lot of dopamine will do.

Dopamine acts in the pleasure pathway of our brains. It is activated whenever we do anything pleasurable, like kissing, adventuring, or eating chocolate, and compels us to seek out these activities. It's *wonderful*!

These solid sterling silver earrings are based on the shape of the dopamine neurotransmitter molecule. They are about 3/4 inch long, very pretty, and come in a gift box with a story card about dopamine.

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.
