    About the designs:
  • Adrenaline: Also called adrenalin or epinephrine. Secreted by the adrenal gland in your body, this hormone gives you that rush on a roller coaster and the fear you feel while watching a horror movie. In the hospital, adrenaline is used to treat anaphylaxis and cardiac arrest. It's the medication found inside epinephrine autoinjectors to save lives during extreme allergic reactions. Gift for people with peanut and sting allergies as a constant reminder for vigilance.
  • Serotonin: Serotonin functions as a neurotransmitter in your brain that, along with dopamine, is associated with feelings of happiness. A serotonin release causes you to feel more generally happy. An absence of serotonin can cause feelings of depression.
  • Dopamine: Dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter in your brain that, along with serotonin, is associated with feelings of happiness. Dopamine is what causes you to feel really good when something goes better than you had expected. An absence of dopamine can cause feelings of anxiety.
  • Oxytocin: Oxytocin is the love and bonding hormone. It's the hormone released after birth to help new moms bond with their baby. It also induces milk production. It's not just for new mothers though. Oxytocin is what you feel whenever you hug someone you love. Recent studies have even proved that oxytocin is released when you interact with your pets as well.
  • Estrogen: Molecular structure of estradiol, one of the estrogen hormones used in your body.
  • Benzene: One of the most fundamental structures in organic chemistry and can be found in most organic molecules. The hexagonal honeycomb shape of the six carbon atom chain also represents one of the strongest and most space-efficient engineering structures which is why it appears so frequently in nature. A perfect gift for the organic chemist, architect, beekeeper, honey farmer, apiarist, apiculturist, or minimalist in your life.

Nice!

2/8/2019 by Jim

I purchased this for my wife because she is a science geek. She was really excited when someone asked her what it was and she got to explain Oxytocin. Although it’s really cool, the piece does have rather sharp edges. Not that it would cut anyone, but if you were to wear it over a sweater it may snag. Also, she says that if you bend a certain way you could “feel” the edges. But to try to smooth out the edges would be very difficult with the detail involved. It’s something she says she can live with but others might not be so tolerant. Over all it’s a nice piece and a conversation starter. I’m giving it a four rating only because of the edges.More > < Less

Disappointed

I love the design but am disappointed with the material used for the pendant. The chain and pendant are different colors which doesn’t look very aesthetic.More > < Less

Almost had it.

I loved the idea of this necklace and its meaning - I ordered the large one to use as a unique gift. However, when it arrived, I was disappointed as to how rough the edges were. Not suitable for the tender skin of a young lady or a woman. If the edges were more rounded so that skin would not be scratched or delicate fabric would not be snagged, it would be absolutely perfect. I will use it as a decoration on my Xmas tree as it will have meaning for me.More > < Less

Carrie handcrafts each scientifically-accurate stainless steel pendant in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and pays tribute to some of the feel-good molecules found in our bodies like serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin. For the non-chemists out there, she includes information about each one. The necklaces have a minimal feel that’s also striking.
