For thousands of years, people have found value in yoga practice. One of the reasons for this is that yoga boosts the molecule GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in our brains. GABA relaxes us and lessens stress, depression, and anxiety.

This necklace pairs a charm based on the shape of GABA with a gemstone charm. The GABA charm is about 3/4 in long and made of quality, recycled/reclaimed sterling silver, and the wire wrap around the opal is also sterling silver. It is strung on a 16 or 18 inch sterling silver snake chain. Please specify with your order.

You can choose:

amethyst - purple
aquamarine - very light blue
garnet - wine
lapis - dark blue
turquoise - bold blue
peridot - light green

A delicate-looking and subtle symbolic talisman, this petite necklace won't get in the way of your downward dog. It comes in a cute gift box with an informational tag about GABA.

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.
