Don’t forget to buy the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. Why not a pair of oxytocin earrings in silver?
Oxytocin is a feel-good hormone and called the ”Love hormone”. It’s released during physical contact.
Oxytocin is a peptide consisting of 9 amino acids. The jewelry shows the peptide chain in three dimensions.
Give a nice Valentine’s Day gift on 14 February. Why not a silver heart?
I cast silver hearts of the silver that is leftover when I make my science jewelry. Each heart is unique. It gets a wonderful weight and an exciting finish.

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