Nobel Prize jewelry 2022
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2022 was awarded to Svante Pääbo “for his discoveries concerning the genomes of extinct hominins and human evolution”.
Svante Pääbo mapped the genome of Neanderthals by sequencing mitochondrial DNA, mtDNA, from pieces of Neanderthal human bone. mtDNA is a small circular chromosome found inside the mitochondrion.
This year’s Nobel Prize jewelry in Physiology/Medicine is therefore a mtDNA necklace. mtDNA is usually illustrated as a thick ring of double-stranded DNA, right-handed around the ring.
The Nobel Prize in Physics in 2022 was awarded Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science” .
This year’s Nobel Prize jewelry in Physics is ‘Two particles with entangled photons’ as a jacket pin/brooch. The two particles do not have a definite state before they are measured. Both particles are gray, with no secret information, until someone looks at one of them. Chance decides which one will be red/yellow and which one will be green/blue. One may turn out to be green/blue. Immediately the other particle then gets the opposite color.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2022 was awarded to Carolyn R. Bertozzi, Morten Meldal and K. Barry Sharpless “for the development of click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry”.
Click chemistry is a new and systematic way of building molecules by snap together molecular building blocks.
This year’s Nobel Prize jewelry in Chemistry is the Triazol necklace, the crown jewel of click chemistry. The result of the copper catalysed azide-alkyne cycloaddition.

Silver jewelry with Fibonacci spiral & Golden spiral.
Fibonacci spiral & Golden spiral as a silver jewelry is now available in my web shop.
Fibonacci numbers are numbers where each number is the sum of the two previous Fibonacci numbers; 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…
A Fibonacci spiral starts with a rectangle partitioned into 2 squares. In each step, a square the length of the rectangle’s longest side is added to the rectangle.
The Fibonacci sequence is related to the golden ratio. The golden ratio φ is a mathematical constant ≈1.618. A rectangle whose sides relate to the golden ratio is called the golden rectangle. A golden rectangle can be divided into a square and a smaller golden rectangle. By repeatedly dividing the smaller rectangle in the same way, you get a figure in which the so-called golden spiral, can be drawn in.
The Fibonacci number occurs in spiral structures in nature.
The number of spirals calculated counterclockwise or clockwise, respectively, in such structures constitute two successive Fibonacci numbers.
Möbius ribbon as silver jewelry
Möbius ribbon as silver jewelry is now available in my web shop.
Möbius ribbon is a ribbon with only one side and one border.
