New Kits: Serotonin and Dopamine Beaded Molecules

Beading kits are now available for the Serotonin and Dopamine Beaded Molecules!

First up is a silvery colorway based on CPK colors, a standard coloring system used in the sciences to color-code each atom in a molecule. In this system, the carbon atoms are black, the oxygen atoms are red, and the nitrogen atoms are blue. I made these molecules a little more fancy by using hematite, AB, and luster finishes in the seed beads.

Next up is the orchid colorway, in soft lavender, tanzanite, and teal green. I created a necklace using five of these beaded molecules, which I've taken to wearing quite a lot lately!

Last up is a pink and gold colorway, using fancy gold-plated seed beads and pink and purple Duracoat Miyuki seed beads. I used nine beaded molecules to form a linked necklace in this colorway.

All three kits include enough beads to make a total of ten dopamine and serotonin beaded molecules. You can mix and match the types of molecules from this kit; you can make 10 dopamine molecules, 10 serotonin molecules, five of each, or anywhere in-between. The kit also includes jump rings and a clasp so that you can make a linked necklace like in the gold colorway above (crystals not included).

Oscillations Pendants

I finished two additional colorways of my Oscillations Pendant. The first uses dark brown Tila and SuperDuo beads to frame rosy peach Rizo flowers:

The second combines dark green seed beads with a lighter, metallic patina shade for the Tila and SuperDuos, which frame silvery violet Rizo flowers.

Here's the original colorway for comparison. This one is paired with a matching spiral rope, however the pendant can be strung on a variety of materials including a metal chain or a silk ribbon.

I'll be teaching this project at the Bead & Button Show on Wednesday, June 4. You can sign up for the class here. I would love to see you there!
