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.

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.

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)

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….

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.

EnteRing, InjuRing & RecoveRing.

Narrative Jewelry Chapter 1: EnteRing (entering) / InjuRing (injuring)

This ring has two names, because they both fit the story for this tongue in cheek creation. Mounted on the silver band is a very non-precious stone, in fact it was a part of the road up until the point that my boyfriend launched himself onto it from the seat of his motorbike. At this point the stone entered and injured his arm (and stayed there for longer than advisable).

The silver band has a scratched/damaged look – much like the motorbike did after said incident.

Enter

vb
1. to come or go into (a particular place) he entered the room,

Injure

vb (-juring, -jured)
1. to hurt physically or mentally,
2. to do wrong to (a person), esp. by an injustice, the injured party,
3. to damage, an opportunity to injure your reputation…*

Narrative Jewelry Chapter 2: RecoveRing (recovering)

As I mentioned above, the stone lingered, resulting in a minor hospital visit and a short course of antibiotics. Hence: recovering. And he is fine by the way!

Recover

vb
1. (of a person) to regain health, spirits, or composure,
2. to regain a former and better condition…*

Greener Jewellery – Vinegar vs. Citric Acid.

It’s time to switch from a strong chemical pickle in my workshop to a more friendly alternative which has less impact on the environment and is easier to dispose of. Now the question is what is my best alternative?

Citric acid powder

I have heard that people are using vinegar with salt, or citric acid, instead of the usual jewellers’ choice; sodium bisulphate. This afternoon I did a quick experiment to see which gives the best results in the shortest time.

I used this recipe that I found for the vinegar solution: 1 cup of white vinegar with 1 tablespoon of salt. I dissolved the citric acid powder in warm water until it was saturated.

after soldering

I had some large silver jump rings to solder so I set up a bowl of hot citric acid and a bowl of hot vinegar solution.

After quenching my jump rings I put one in each pickle solution and waited.

Of course it took longer than the sodium bisulphate but after a couple of minutes it was clear that the vinegar was cleaning the silver quicker.

Ten minutes later and these were the results. I tried the test again in the interest of fairness and found the same.

Vinegar wins! Anyone know of anything better?
