Serotonin and Dopamine

Start a conversation with this clever jewelry fashioned from the shapes of a few rather important molecules. Serotonin, a chemical responsible for happiness and relaxation, has an elegant shape that makes for a terrific necklace that will make you grin as much as the chemical it represents. And the dopamine earrings represent passion and pleasure with splendid scientific flair. Each piece is sterling silver and comes in a recycled box with an informational tag. Handmade in California by Dr. Raven Hanna.

Dr. Raven Hanna

Dr. Raven Hanna

Dr. Raven Hanna has Ph.D. in molecular biophysics and biochemistry and did her postdoctoral research at Berkley. But these days you won't find her in any lab. A few years ago, she traded her science career for an creative one. She's been making science-inspired jewelry ever since.

Raven's molecular pieces are inspired by the neurotransmitters that she finds interesting, and ones that can be applied to daily life. Her work is a celebration of science, art, life and the universe.

    This was a gift for my chemistry teacher, as we learned organic chemistry this year. I haven't given it to her yet, but it was a gorgeous product. As well, the gift wrapping was lovely and I recommend it for presents. Overall a unique and thoughtful gift idea.

        I am a scientist and wear these at any relevant events and get lots of compliments. Sadly, we were robbed several weeks ago and all my jewelry was stolen. These were among the first I sought to replace. I am so glad they were so available.

            I was looking for a gift for a friend who is studying Molecular and Cellular biology and I ran in to this! It's very interesting and sort of humorous, but still beautiful enough to look classy.

              I love jewelry but I also consider myself tending toward the science-minded, so I took a fancy to these earrings in the shape of a molecule.

                    These earrings were a gift for a friend that was just accepted into nursing school. They are wonderfully unique and were a total hit with her!

                      I LOVE this necklace. As soon as I received it, I put it on; then someone commented on how nice it was. I was happy to explain what it was and what serotonin does. So, not only is it a great-looking necklace, it makes me a feel little smarter too! :D
