Hepatitis C jewelry

One of this year’s Nobel jewelry is inspired by the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The Nobel Prize was awarded Harvey J. Alter, Charles M. Rice och Michael Houghton for the discovery of the Hepatitis C virus.

 

 

The Hepatitis C is a small enveloped RNA virus. The virus particle consists of a lipid membrane envelope. Within the envelope an icosahedral core. My interpretation is a virus jewelry where parts of the membrane is peeled off so that the protein capsid is visible.

This year’s Nobel jewelry

I have now delivered this year’s Nobel jewelry in Medicine, Physics and Chemistry to the Nobel Museum in the Old Town, Stockholm.

 

 

World Diabetes Day, November 14

On November 14, World Diabetes Day will be celebrated around the world. It is the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who discovered insulin along with Charles Best. Sir Frederick Banting and John McLeod were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1923.

Insulin, hormone which lowers blood sugar levels.
Glucagon, hormone which raises blood sugar levels.

 

Handmade silver jewelry of the three dimensional structures of insulin and glucagon.

 

 

During 2020, 10% of my sales of my jewelry of insulin and glucagon will go to the Juvenile diabetes foundation (Sweden).

 

 

 

New silver jewelry

The silver necklaces show the three-dimensional structures of the scorpion toxin AmmTX3 and the neuropeptide Dynorphin A. Two new protein jewels in my web shop.

AmmTX3
Dynorphin A

 

 

The scorpion toxin AmmTX3 produced by Androctonus mauretanicus is known for its ability to act as a specific potassium channel blocker.

 

 

Dynorphin A is a small opioid peptide used to treat chronic pain.

 

Sagittarius A * as a jacket pin

The silver jewelery inspired by the Nobel Prize 2020 in physics is now also available as a jacket pin.

The jewelry shows Sagittarius A*, the Milky Way’s central supermassive black hole, and the orbits of the brightest stars closest to the middle of the Milky Way.

Silver jewelry inspired by the Nobel Prize 2020 in Physics

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2020 was awarded to Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez for their discoveries about one of the most exotic phenomena in the universe, the black hole.


The silver jewelry shows Sagittarius A*, the Milky Way’s central supermassive black hole, and the orbits of the brightest stars closest to the middle of the Milky Way.

Silver jewelry inspired by the Nobel Prize 2020 in Chemistry

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 was awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna “for the development of a method for genome editing”.

Using genome editing researchers can change the DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms with extremely high precision. A technology that can lead to new cancer therapies and opportunities to cure hereditary diseases.

 

 

 

 

The necklace shows CRISPR with guide-RNA & dsDNA.

 

 

 

Silver jewelry inspired by the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2020

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2020 was awarded to Harvey J. Alter, Charles M. Rice och Michael Houghton for the discovery of Hepatitis C virus.

The hepatitis C virus is a small enveloped RNA virus. The virus particle consists of a lipid membrane envelope. Two viral envelope glycoproteins are embedded in the lipid envelope and take part in viral attachment and entry into the cell. Within the envelope is an icosahedral core. Inside the core is the single-stranded RNA molecule. The virus is the cause of hepatitis C liver cancer.

The necklace shows Hepatitis C virus; a part of the lipid envelope around the icosahedral protein shell in thin silver plate.
