Description

Genes are written in DNA and RNA molecules using a code of chemical units called bases. These bases form pairs, which is critical to their function. In DNA, A (adenine) pairs with T (thymine) and G (guanine) pairs with C (cytosine). In RNA, G pairs with C and A pairs with U (uracil).

The charms are based on shapes of the base molecules. They are hooked onto an earwire at the place where they would normally connect to the sugar-phosphate backbone.

This listing is for one pair of earrings. You can choose which two bases you would like in your pair. Please let me know which two you'd like when ordering. If not specified, I'll send a set of my choice.

The charms are about 3/4 inches long, are made with high-quality reclaimed/recycled sterling silver, and are connected to sterling silver French wires.

These come in a pretty, recycled gift box and include an informational card about the molecules involved.

Customer comments about these earrings:

“Beautifully crafted, unashamedly geeky and great customer service!”

“My sister loved the earings. And I loved seeing that ravenhanna is putting a lot of love not only in the product itself, but also in the packaging and the additional information inside the package.”

“I think these earrings are a fantastic idea, executed to perfection! They're sturdy but also delicate in their fine detail - they are exactly what I was after and I couldn't be happier! Thanks so much Raven :)”

“I love these so much! Molecular biology really is beautiful, and now I get to show it off on my ears!”

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.
