We all know what a molecule is right? This is something you learn in junior high and high school. Molecules that you might recognize by name could be serotonin, dopamine, caffeine and estrogen just to name
a few. How creative can you get with molecules though? Science is just science right?
In Raven Hanna’s world, molecules are just the gateway to making beautiful pieces of art. She graduated from Yale with a PhD in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry (impressive), and then completed her post doctorate at UC Berkeley (even more impressive). Although she loves science, she also had a creative side that needed to be satisfied as well!
Raven Hanna makes unique pieces of art for the science lover, or appreciator in all of us. She makes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more, all while using handmade charms that take the shape of
molecules! A few of my favorites are the serotonin necklace, which is the molecule that induces happiness, and also, the caffeine necklace and earrings are pretty awesome as well. Who doesn’t love a little
The majority of the jewelry is made out of sterling silver and ranging in price from around 40-260 dollars depending on the size and complexity of the piece. She also makes some of her molecular jewelry
in 14K gold as well. Also make sure to check out the other wares on the website as well, not just jewelry has been inspired by these molecular wonders! You can also find, molecular inspired holiday
cards, shirts, glassware and even baby onesies!
