I've seen the caffeine molecule pendants before, cast in silver, but I like your beaded one better. It has more intricacy & texture.

I'd love to make a molecule necklace! Can you give some details on how you made it? I've not quite puzzled it out yet. Yours looks fantastic!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you and thank-you Smiley, the molecules are inspired from the cast ones, but they were very expensive.... and I had previously bought a coffee cup from the same company with bad results...and I wanted more detail, like the double joints.

Yes, the fortune cookies slide. I was inspired by a metal necklace that is on uncommongoods.com, but was too expensive to buy ;_; .

I'd love to make a molecule necklace! Can you give some details on how you made it? I've not quite puzzled it out yet. Yours looks fantastic!

I'll try do explain as easy as posible but I am not sure I can:
I made them with quill (? tube ?) beads, various metal round beads and used 26 gauge beading wire. I used the wire to make the basic shape and on the double tube I went through the hole twice with the wire, I used clamp beads in some places to hold the bead on. I would have liked to use a thicker gauge of wire because its less prone to snapping but I would have limited the beads I could have used with anything thincker. You have to be very gentle while bending because of this.

What are the fortunes made out of, fimo or real metal?


All of the necklaces are adorable, btw!

Ah deadly I can imagine using the estrogen one as a subtle sign post to warn friends and boyfreind of PMT.
