Please note: The popularity of my amino acid jewelry has caused a temporary "K" deficiency. This bracelet will be ready to ship in the first week of December.



This bracelet is not only artistic and beautiful, it contains a secret message.

Life is coded in the amino acids, which make up proteins. People have 20 different amino acids, each of which has been given a one-letter code as shorthand. So, you can make strings of amino acids that spell things! I've done just that, fashioning the amino acids' chemical shapes in sterling silver, so they can be used as an alphabet to spell words or names.

This bracelet spells "GEEK," for those of us who like to represent the home team. [G=glycine, E=glutamate, K=lysine]

Other names and words are available for special order; please inquire. (Letters currently available: A E F G I K L M N P Q S T V Y )

The bracelet is sterling silver, 7 inches long, and closes with an easy-squeeze lobster clasp. I can make the bracelet longer or shorter.

It comes in a pretty recycled gift box with an amino acid letter code key. So, you could *tell* a gift recipient what word it is, or let her\/him puzzle it out!

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.
