Experience the chemistry of happiness and satisfaction in beaded molecules, which are woven together in a network of seed beads for your own science-inspired jewelry! These beaded molecules represent the skeletal chemical structures of two very important molecules in brain chemistry; serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin is associated with feelings of well-being and satisfaction, while dopamine is released during rewarding experiences. Like the real molecules, these beaded versions are mostly flat yet somewhat flexible, and are also color-coded to show the connections between the carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen atoms in each compound. String one of these molecules on a jump ring for an easy pendant, or connect several of these beaded molecules together for a very rewarding necklace!

  • Complete written instructions on how to weave two different beaded molecules important to brain function.
  • 23 pages of step-by-step instructions.
