Water Molcules

About this design:

So there I was window shopping on Etsy just to see what I could find. I came across a site with some really wild charms and among them were various molecules. Now I have charms for red wine molecules, whiskey, beer, vodka and caffeine. Then there are the neurotransmitter molecules and the very best one of all... TNT! I haven't got them all made into jewelry yet but what a fun time I've had so far.

Hi Everyone. I'm back again and hopefully there will not be any long absences this time. My jewelry making has been in fits and starts with a lack of new ideas. But this crazy bunch of molecules has at least got me started again.

    Molecules? How extraordinary!
    This necklace has a hidden message – lol – and it looks great too

    Looks almost steam punk. Could add a bee and have silver hives.

    What an intriguing concept. The chain works very well with the elements. I can’t wait to see your other creations using the new ‘molecule’ components.

    Hey LRC! I was just thinking about you! Very cool charms. My older daughter would like this, having earned a pHd in cell & molecular biology (I think!). Nice to see your creations again. Welcome back❤️

    Extremely cool! What I love is the clasp that suggests the same shape, and the wonderful teardrop focal! Great choice of chain, too! Big fave!

    LRC I’ve missed seeing your projects! I started a necklace like your loops wrapped around a sharpie. I just haven’t finished it. I need to get my house back in shape so I can start beading again. I love your molecular set. But isn’t water a little boring.(at least imho) Go for the good stuff.
