Silver jewelry inspired by the Nobel Prize 2019 in Physics.
It shows an exoplanet orbiting its sun-like star. A star which is plated with 23K gold leaf.
A selection of my new molecular jewelry in 2019. Everything from a ‘bootlace worm’ toxin (a dissertation present) to the exoplanet (this year’s Nobel Prize jewelry in physics). An eventful year that is about to end.
I wish you all a Happy New Year!
A Merry Christmas to you all!!!
An article about me and my science inspired silver jewelry in the online magazine Curie.

Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz are awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics for the first discovery of a planet outside our solar system, an exoplanet, orbiting a solar-type star in our home galaxy, the Milky Way.
My interpretation of the Nobel prize is an exoplanet, oxidized silver ball, orbiting its sun-like star. A star which is gilded with 23K gold leaf. You can find the exoplanet jewelry in the store at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm.
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is awarded to William Kaelin, Peter Ratcliffe and Gregg Semenza for their discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability. Gregg Semenza and Peter Ratcliffe studied the erythropoietin gene (EPO gene) and how it is regulated by varying oxygen levels. EPO is a hormone and stimulates red blood cell formation and thus the body’s oxygen uptake capacity.
This silver jewelry shows the three-dimensional structure of EPO. You can find the jewelry in the store at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm.
Handmade silver jewelry of the three dimensional structures of insulin and glucagon. Both insulin and glucagon are blood sugar regulating hormones. Insulin lowers and glucagon raises the blood sugar level.
During November & December, 10% of my sales of insulin and glucagon jewelry will go to the Juvenile diabetes foundation (Sweden).
