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!

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!

Oxytocin

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

The Atomic Structure of Iron

Iron – The 26th Element

Atom ring

As my readers and customers will know, I’m not a scientist by trade. I’m a jeweller. But science still fascinates me and I love to create commissions like this one.

My Customer

My customer wanted a special ring to give as a gift to her other half and asked me if I could somehow make a ring inspired by iron. It was to be a gift for a chemistry teacher named Felecia, who goes by ‘Fe’ for short. What a great idea for a chemist! Combine her name with an element.

I sent a few designs and we worked together to finalise it.

The Ring

The front of this ring shows the atomic structure of iron. Each of the 26 holes show the electrons and the engraved circles show the orbital rings. The dot in the center represents the nucleus.

There is an engraving on the inside of the band reading ‘that one’s all mine’.

Production

This ring was fun to make because it set me a bit of a challenge. Along with the usual cutting, drilling and soldering, I wanted to engrave the circles by hand, but in my mind they had to be perfect. After all, this is a scientific diagram, for a scientist and (unlike some of my other work) not really open to abstract ideas! After a few trial runs I was happy that I was going to be able to make them as I envisaged.

Capture3 Capture2Science ringThat one's all mineIron Element Ring

 

Feedback

 ”My experience was wonderful. Emily really worked to create my vision. She stuck in there as I changed my mind on the little details, and the ring was flawlessly executed, and looked and fit perfect. Fe loves it and hasn’t taken it off since Christmas. All her colleagues find it to be a perfect fit for her. I will definitely be commissioning another piece.”   L.Sullivan

Fashionable, Bold and Exciting!

Lexus IS Press kits with Emily Alice Adrenaline Cufflinks

The Lexus IS Press kit

There are billions of molecules! But only one was right for the launch of the Lexus IS in 2013.

I was very proud to be approached by the team that runs the PR for Lexus and asked to make a batch of cufflinks that could be used in their press kits for a special launch.

Lexus Studio Shot

Adrenaline cufflinks

The PR team was using the adrenaline theme to compliment the personality of the car ‘fashionable, bold and exciting’ and my cufflinks were a perfect match. They designed the spherical pod to encase the cufflinks to echo the shape of the elements in the molecule.

Each pair of cufflinks were carefully handmade in my studio from sterling silver and given a blackened finish. Many hours of work went into making each pair perfect!

The PR kits were sent to journalists across the US and my wonderful contact kept me updated on the feedback they were getting. The cufflinks were a huge hit and  there was some great feedback from journalists at Cigar Aficionado, GQ and The Robb Report to name a few.

The cufflinks were so well loved that I even had an order for an additional few pairs of cufflinks to be presented to the (V)VIPs at Lexus/Toyota! I was so thrilled that my adrenaline cufflinks were such a good match – as were the PR team.

 

“Despite the time difference, Emily was incredibly responsive, easy to work with and flexible on timing when I commissioned her to create jewelry for a media press kit. She delivered ahead of schedule and each piece was flawless.”

K.Alford – Account Supervisor. (See this recommendation on my LinkedIn profile and connect with me)

Oxytocin Jewellery

A New Design

Coming very soon, a new design of the oxytocin pendant, and brand new to the collection – earrings and bracelet in the same style!

The previous pendant was a huge hit and I just know that you are going to love this collection even more. Only the best for such an
important  molecule in our lives. If you want to learn more about oxytocin then take a look at this post.

But right now here is a sneak peek for you. The new style is made up of solid silver spheres – much like my very popular dopamine range. Ok, enough words from me. Feast your eyes on the pendant and earrings here….

Vasopressin Pendant

“The pendant was a huge hit with the recipient and others… Thanks again for doing such a great job!’ William E. Armstrong, Ph.D.”

Customer’s Requirements

My customer was looking for a very specific piece of jewelry. As the head of a department he was looking for a special piece to give as a retirement gift to recognize the great achievements of a person who had dedicated her working life to researching vasopressin. He wanted a pendant in the shape of the vasopressin molecule in the style of my oxytocin molecule pendant he had found.

Designs

The vasopressin molecule is quite complex compared to some of my other designs and my first step was to take the shape of the molecule and work out a shape I could work with – and was a true representation of the molecule.

I started by looking at the chemical structure for vasopressin – C46H45N13O12S2  (phew – big task ahead!)

Then I got some images like these – because I’m a visual person at the end of the day. I use the numbers above to check everything is looking right at the end.

File:Arginine vasopressin3d.png
Image from Wikipedia – Vasopressin.

File:Vasopressin labeled.png
Image from Wikipedia – vasopressin

 

To start the design I worked on the computer to combine the two images above – I wanted to chow each atom as a sphere but not to be so dense as the 3D image above.

After many hours of checking and creating I ended up with this –

Vasopressin molecule

After some discussion with my customer – we decided that an engraving was going to really make the piece special. So I suggested we place the molecule on top of an oval shaped back – giving plenty of space to engrave a message at the back.

Vasopressin pendant design

 

The customer also decided that a black outline of the molecule would really make it stand out – and I totally agreed!

Results

Here are some images of the pendant in the making and the final piece.

Commemorative Coin – Embrace the Chaos

Embrace the Chaos – Commemorative Coin

Customer’s Requirements

My client approached me wanting a commemorative coin for a 5 year wedding anniversary. She explained to me that her husband and herself would often make big life decisions based on a coin flip and she wanted to make a special coin to suit them.

Design

After some discussion we decided on the design for the ‘heads and tails’. Their custom  coin would have an elephant on one

side for the strong and sure path. he reverse would show an adrenaline molecule to indicate the more risky choice. She chose to have to words ‘Embrace the chaos’ engraved on this side too.

 Result

The sculpted copper coin really captured the essence of this couple, I’m told the husband carries it with him in his pocket daily! It seems that both sides of the coin are positive for them and they make the most of what they have or choose or is fated to them!

Caffeine for a Nescafe VIP

Caffeine Jewellery

Cuffs-Set

 

This project was a private commission from a VIP at Nescafe. My client wanted to give some caffeine jewellery to his team as a Christmas gift and asked me if I could design some pieces for him.

At the time I didn’t have any caffeine inspired jewellery in my collection and was excited to create something new for him.

After sending over a few designs it was decided that I would make cufflinks for the men and pendants that doubled up as brooches for the women.

Both designs used the caffeine molecule with an oval shape. The oval was to represent the coffee bean.

We worked together to write a description to be featured on the packaging and each piece also had a personlised engraving on the back.

The gifts were very well recieved by the team and it was a wonderful to fabricate each meaningful piece.

A Collection of ‘Red HerRings’

A Little Word Play

Red herrings: I quite like words, I like word play even more.
This is a re-visitation of an old project – in fact it was the project I set myself for my final year at university.

The source of my inspiration is the dictionary. I have been through my copy with a fine toothed comb and collected all the words I can find with the word ‘ring’ in it somewhere. Firing, remebering, enduring and hard-of-hearing are a few examples. I’m working on fabricating a range of words into rings to be worn. Check back for updates and to see how I have interpenetrated the words I choose.

Here are some that I have already created;

Memorial Necklace

Customer’s Requirements

My customer had recently lost a family member and contacted me to make a memorial necklace with a piece removed so she could bury it with her loved one. She had lost one of her cousins leaving 3 in her family so she asked for 3 pieces on the necklace and one separate piece of dopamine.

Designs

I suggested that we design the necklace with a physical space where the fourth piece would have been, a way to remember her family member.

It also turned out that the separate piece was to be cremated so I had to find a new material to work with as the silver would not burn and would be removed at the crematorium.

Result

 After some experimenting I sculpted a dopamine piece from papier mache and painted it silver.

My client chose a design that had the outline of the fourth piece on the chain and would serve as a beautiful reminder for her.

You can see the result on the right, my client loved it:  “it’s perfect”, and it was a beautiful project for me to work with her on.

Adrenaline Ring – My Life, My love, My Adrenaline.

An adrenaline molecule ring, with a beautiful custom engraving. The front shows the molecule adrenaline and the groom chose to have the ring in silver.

This ring was made as a wedding band for a groom and he was thrilled with his choice and the craftsmanship.

I’ve made a similar ring to this before, in the blackened silver style that you’ll see in my classic adrenaline collection. See below for pictures of the blackened adrenaline ring.

This lovely little snowflake was not formed in a cloud being whisked around as I described a few days ago. But it was made carefully from sterling silver – hand cut with my jewellers saw. Each snowflake I have made this winter is totally unique and there are only three left. Here is one of them – click the image to see more detail and to find more.
