The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 was awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna “for the development of a method for genome editing”.
Using genome editing researchers can change the DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms with extremely high precision. A technology that can lead to new cancer therapies and opportunities to cure hereditary diseases.
The necklace shows CRISPR with guide-RNA & dsDNA.
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2020 was awarded to Harvey J. Alter, Charles M. Rice och Michael Houghton for the discovery of Hepatitis C virus.
The hepatitis C virus is a small enveloped RNA virus. The virus particle consists of a lipid membrane envelope. Two viral envelope glycoproteins are embedded in the lipid envelope and take part in viral attachment and entry into the cell. Within the envelope is an icosahedral core. Inside the core is the single-stranded RNA molecule. The virus is the cause of hepatitis C liver cancer.
The necklace shows Hepatitis C virus; a part of the lipid envelope around the icosahedral protein shell in thin silver plate.
The International Coffee Organisation has decided that the coffee day should be October 1st.

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.
