Repost: Creativity necklace

A re-post from the artchives (original posting date 1 November 2009) - with the blog in its current form over four years old, I intend to dig up some of the older posts once in a while. This one is undergoing an unexpected increase in popularity currently, being by far the most viewed post of the last month.

The former chemistry PhD student in me loves this necklace - and all scientific connotations aside, it is a pretty design as well. The charms dangling on this sterling silver necklace represent the three major neurotransmitters (the brain chemicals responsible for mood and emotion) critical to creativity. From left to right: serotonin (happiness, satisfaction), dopamine (love, passion, pleasure), and acetylcholine (learning, memory, dreaming).
