I design and manufacture silver jewelry inspired by science. After many years in the research world, I switched to be a silver artist. Combining science with silversmithing is fantastic. Protein structures, small molecules and DNA helix, all have beautiful shapes and I form them in silver wire into unique silver jewelry. In collaboration with the Nobel Museum, I also design silver jewelry inspired by the Nobel Prize in physics, medicine and chemistry.

I make jewelry in the form of necklaces, jacket pins, earrings, bracelets and rings. All my jewelry is made by hand in Silver 925, sometimes combined with 18K gold.

IgG is the most common type of antibody found in blood circulation.

IgM is the first antibody that our immune system makes to fight a new infection.

IgA is an antibody that occurs in tears, saliva, sweat and colostrum. IgA is in the “first line of defense” against viruses.
