Cotton Molecule Pendant – Anniversary Gift

Cotton Molecule Pendant

This piece was a special commission for a second wedding anniversary. Cotton is the symbol for the second year of marriage – its symbolic as cotton fibers are closely interwoven, much like two peoples lives in the second year of marriage.

Cotton Molecule

This pendant is inspired by the cellulose molecular structure C6H10O5(n), this molecule is a repeating unit. Cotton is 90% cellulose so this was the perfect choice for this cotton themed gift. The sterling silver pendant represents a single cellulose unit. It’s a piece made to be treasured and loved.

Compound CC3-R Cufflinks

Compound CC3-R Cufflinks

Compound CC3-RThese cufflinks were a very unique commission to be given to a post doctoral research associate at Liverpool University. Each link shows a representation of the compound CC3-R molecule.

The cufflinks are made from sterling silver with the molecule hand-cut into the face of the handmade links.

Designing the Cufflinks

The cufflinks were commissioned by my customer (and long time friend), Gavin, for his brother Marc. They were given to celebrate Marc’s 30th birthday and also his publication in Nature Journal about the CC3-R molecule that he and his colleagues developed. See the online publication at Nature journal here.

Since this project involved such a unique molecule that is built by Marc, neither I or the gift giver, Gavin, had heard of it. We worked together to get the design right for the recipient and enlisted some help from someone who understood more about Marc’s work. (Thanks, Alex!)

I’m pleased to report that the links were a hit.

Oxytocin Bracelet – Cuff in Argentium Silver

Oxytocin Bracelet

This chunky and heavy cuff was a custom design with the oxytocin molecule. It was a Mother’s Day gift for a lady who wanted something more chunky and made from argentium.

Argentium is a sterling silver alloy that is less likely to tarnish and is usually 935 silver (sterling is 925).

This handmade oxytocin bracelet was designed to be a cuff that would stand out and look beautiful and bold. The design on the front of the bracelet is a representation of the oxytocin molecule, with the different holes showing each element of the molecule.

The oxytocin bracelet made a wonderful gift for a mother – the hormone is the bonding chemical and is especially present with parental bonds. For new mother’s it’s the hormone that creates attachment and (among many other things) enables mother’s to produce milk.

Oxytocin Bracelet in the Making

Here are some images taken in my studio during the making of the oxytocin bracelet:

Plant a tree with your jewelry.

Plant tree with jewelry
So, what do Brazil, China and the US have to do with Emily Alice Jewelry? If you’ve ever ordered a piece of jewelry from me recently you will have seen one of these lovely tags (above) along with the molecule description.
Yep, when you buy some molecule jewelry from my shop I’ll plant a tree. Well, I’m not actually going out digging (apart from when I’m tending to my herbs and lettuce). But I donate regularly to a charity that is planting trees in Brazil, China and the US!Each project has an important focus including re-developing forests that are homes to pandas in China, bio-diverse forests in Brazil and regenerating carbon capturing in the US.

Plant tree with jewelrySo I wanted to say thanks to you for supporting my business, this is just one of the ways I stay true to my values.

Hope you are having a great week!

Polishing Dopamine Earrings

Whenever I have friends or family visit, they always want to have a peek in my studio, sometimes I forget how magical it can be to share what happens behind the scenes. I love my work, but I still forget how interesting it can be for someone who is not a silversmith to see some of the processes. I’ve collected a couple of images to share with you guys as a small insight into what happens at my workbench. I hope you enjoy seeing them! If you do let me know and I’ll keep collecting more for an occasional peek!

Here I am using my pendant motor to polish right into the seams and nooks of this silver dopamine molecule.

Here I’m just about to solder the ear wire to the molecule. I’m using my ‘third hand’ tweezers to hold the earring.

Dopamine Earring

And here is a batch of earrings that I just finished soldering, I even make all the ear wires from scratch and then make sure each loop is soldered to the molecule to be really secure.

And the final polished earrings, this pair are on their way to Canada right now!

Inspiration for Custom Molecule Jewelry

Are you thinking about commissioning a custom piece of molecule jewelry? Below I’ve collected some samples of some designs I have made in the past, these ideas may inspire you and will also give you an idea of the different possibilities that are available. If you have something else in mind for your custom piece then that is fine! Just let me know and we can work on something together. Everything below is fabricated from sterling silver, but I can also offer rose gold and yellow gold vermeil options.

Vasopressin – Custom Pendant

The first piece I’d like to show you is a piece I made as a retirement gift for a very respected researcher. Her work centered around researching vasopressin and I designed this piece in collaboration with her colleagues.

It’s a hand-cut molecule on a flat oval plate with an oxidization to highlight the molecule. Made from sterling silver.

Vasopressin Pendant


Oxytocin Pendant

This next molecule pendant was my original design for an oxytocin pendant. You can now find the 3d version of my oxytocin pendant in my shop, but this one could give some inspiration for your custom piece. As above it’s a hand cut molecule made from sterling silver.


Oxytocin Silver Pendant Model

Dopamine Pendant

Of course you can always commission a new molecule in my 3d style (the style most of the pieces in my shop). These pieces are more sculpted and are solid pieces as this dopamine pendant below.

Dopamine Pendant

Caffeine – Custom Pendant

Below is a caffeine molecule pendant the I designed as a project for a VP at a major coffee company. The molecule is deeply engraved or cut out of the flat silver piece.

caffeine brooch 2

Remember, we can use these ideas as starting points or as the main design for your special piece. Just contact me and we can begin coming up with some ideas for your molecule(s)!

What is Serotonin and What Does it Do?

What is serotonin?

Let’s start with the basics:

Serotonin is a natural chemical created in the body that acts a neurotransmitter.

That’s a chemical messenger that travels across brain cells and plays an essential role in our everyday life.

The chemical messenger in this instance is Serotonin (some other well known neurotransmitters are dopamine and oxytocin).

So, what is serotonin and what does it do?

Serotonin is mostly associated with controlling our mood and keeping anxiety away. But serotonin can also be found in various parts of the body so it is commonly believed that it is involved in a range of functions.

serotonin pendant
Serotonin Molecule Pendant in Sterling Silver

”Of the approximately 40 million brain cells, most are influenced either directly or indirectly by serotonin. This includes brain cells related to mood, sexual desire and function, appetite, sleep, memory and learning, temperature regulation, and some social behavior.” 1

Serotonin is produced in the brain and also in the intestines. In fact, 80-90% of the serotonin found in our bodies is found outside of the brain and it cannot pass the blood-brain barrier. That means that serotonin used in brain functions must also be made in the brain.

Along with regulating our mood it’s been suggested that serotonin could affect our social lives positively.

”Higher levels of serotonin may help to promote more constructive social interactions” 2

And a very recent study has potentially found a link between serotonin levels and how patient we are!

It seems that serotonin is involved in so many functions and scientists are always exploring more connections, I guess that’s why it’s one of the most commonly known molecules and jewelry (like the pendant above) have become such popular symbols for many of us.

So has that got you itching to increase your serotonin levels? I’ll be posting a new blog shortly about how you might be able to do just that!

Avidin and Biotin Rings

avidin and biotin rings

Avidin and Biotin Rings

This lovely commission left my studio this summer. Designed for a couple of postdoctoral researchers, they wanted a ring each that would also fit together to represent the avidin – biotin interaction.


Design and Inspiration

avidin cross


To give you a simple overview, Avidin is a protein and Biotin is a vitamin. The Avidin is represented by the central cross on the rings (shown in green) when they are placed together.


Avidin can bind up to four Biotin molecules. These molecules are represented by the ring shanks which curve around and join into the valleys of the cross. The ‘S’ and ‘N’ are the initials of the couple.








The shape of the ring shank represents the backbone of the biotin conjugate.






Finished Rings

These wonderful pictures were taken by my customer after the avidin and biotin rings arrived and she kindly let me use them here!

Oxytocin Ring Design

Oxytocin Ring

Oxytocin Ring Design – Emily Alice Jewelry

As you probably already know, they oxytocin molecule is not for the faint-hearted. We know that it plays a big part in bonding us to the people we love, but did you know that the structure of the molecule is also pretty complicated?

It’s the most detailed molecule in my jewelry collection so when a customer asked me to make a ring in this molecule, I knew I was facing a challenge. And a challenge I was looking forward to! (I’ve made interactive atom cufflinks and spinning rings. I can do this!)

In the end we decided to make a wide band with the design of the oxytocin molecule cut into it. The back of the band was shaped to be narrower for comfort.

It makes a great piece for someone who is not afraid of large rings!

Are you looking for your own oxytocin ring? These are not yet a permanent feature in my shop, but contact me below if you would like to find out more and order one, or design a different style oxytocin ring that is right for you.

You can also take a look at the oxytocin collection in my shop for other items of jewelry. Enjoy!


It’s all about trust, bonding and love. Made for someone very dear to you.
