The Nobel Prize in Physics 2019 was awarded to Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz 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.
The jewelry shows an exoplanet orbiting its sun-like star. A star which is plated with 23K gold leaf. The jewelry is available in the Nobel Museum’s shop in Stockholm and in my web shop.

I have started to enamel my silver jewelry. It can be done on peptides and smaller proteins. These are the protein molecules glucagon and Protein A. The protein wire is colored in the colors of the rainbow, from blue (first amino acid) to red (last amino acid).
Email me if you have a small protein that you want to color.
Of silver that is leftover when I make my science jewelry, I cast massive silver hearts.
I dig out a heart shape in coal where I then melt down the silver. Each heart is unique. It has a wonderful weight and an exciting finish.
If you want to see some of my silver jewelry – come to my exhibition at Galleri Upsala.
NOTE! Extended by one day !!! Will be open also on Friday. NOTE!
On July 2, the Nobel Museum opens after being closed since March. Why not pay a visit to the museum? Have a coffee, watch the mini-exhibition “Smittsamt” and do some shopping in the store. You will find some of my silver jewelry inspired of the Nobel Prize in Medicin, Chemistry and Physics.
Give someone you like an unique present!

On June 6, 1980 (40 years ago) we got engaged.❤️
On June 6, 1990 (30 years ago) I defended my thesis. The structure of the first bacterial virus, MS2.
On June 6, 1991 (29 years ago) I received my diploma and my laurel wreath. 🍃
Some reasons to raise the flag.
A small exhibition at the Stickspår design shop.
We were outdoors, below the cargo dock, at a proper distance. There was no risk of congestion.
Handmade jewelry showing two sizes of my silver icosahedron. An icosahedron is made up of 20 equilateral triangles fused together in a spherical shape. The icosahedral structure is common among viruses.
Long time ago I solved the first capsid structure of a bacterial virus, MS2. MS2 is a small icosahedral virus.
To show an icosahedron I used to form it in paper now I have shaped it in thin silver plate.
