Resveratrol Jewellery – Red Wine Molecule

Red Wine Lovers! It’s almost here!

Resveratrol Jewellery - Red Wine Molecule

Resveratrol Jewellery from Emily Alice

This is going to be the molecule for the gift giving season this year from Emily Alice Jewellery.

While my dopamine and serotonin collections are always popular, I’m already generating a lot of interest with people who have had an early peek at this new design.

If you are new to my molecule jewellery designs then read below to learn how the resveratrol jewellery relates to the molecule.

 

Coming in September 2015

This collection will include pendants, earrings, rings, cufflinks, full necklaces and bracelets.

As with most of my collections, each item will be available in sterling silver and also rose gold and yellow gold vermeil. This new collection will also be produced using recycled silver for the molecule sculpture.

The collection will be open for pre-orders in August 2015. Sign up below to get the first chance to buy these. (and perhaps a promotion!)

 

 

 

The Resveratrol Molecule

The diagram below is a simple description of how the jewellery represents the red wine molecule. Molecules are made up of different elements. This molecule is made up of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. The spheres on the sculpted jewellery each represent an atom of one of the 3 elements. Still want to know more? Read ‘About the Designs’.

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:

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;

Tiring    Remembering    Heartstrings    Hard-of-hearing     Enduring    Firing    Entering/Injuring

Timeline for Facebook Pages

I love the new Timeline for facebook pages – it feels much more like a blog and is heavy on the images which is great for us artists and crafters. Here is a snapshot of my newly published page – I’ll tell you why I like it below.

I new tabs are much more easy to spot than having them hidden away on the side bar – the buttons are much bigger. Definitly a reason to customise them properly as I have done here.

You can now highlight content from your page and make it bigger or pin it to the top of the page. And at last – there is a function where fans can send you a private message which I think is wonderful.

I found this blog post helpful too Prep Your Business Page for Facebook Timeline: 5 Lessons Learned From Old Spice and Other Big Brands | Business 2 Community

All in all I like the new design – come and see how I filled out my timeline with events and features! http://www.facebook.com/EmilyAliceJewelry

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.

Citric pickle on the left: Vinegar on the right.

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?

Batch Produced Silver ‘Molecule’ Cufflinks

I’ve recently applied to have some of the work I sell online certified as handmade through the website I sell on, and I thought I would share some of my batch production images here. I’d say these cufflinks are my best sellers so I often make mini batches to have on hand at busy times. And to be honest I love seeing all the matching pairs and sets lined up in unison!

Lined up in pairs ready to be soldered.

Firing

I’m itching to get a new workshop set up, but until then I have been playing about on my computer with some images. This is a new addition to my ‘Red HerRing’ collection. Meet FiRing. This very short animation (15seconds!) is made from a sequence of fast fire, still photographs using my camera firing cord, and a hefty chunk of time for this not so tech savvy silversmith!

Enduring

Each side of this ring is enduring the other. With an equal number of nails pushed through and pressing against the top and bottom of the ring it really is a test of endurance. The two ring parts are made from sterling silver and the nails are made from copper. In this image I left the nails with an oxidized finish. I like the balance of the clean white silver, and the rusty looking nails that must be endured.

Enduring. Sterling silver and copper. 2011

enduring [?n?dj??r??]
adj
1. permanent; lasting
2. having forbearance; long-suffering
