When did molecules become necklaces?
Canadian design studio Aroha Silhouettes has made necklaces out of the molecular structures of drugs. Headed by Tania Hennessy, the Designer Drugs Collection includes six narcotics — from stimulants like dopamine and LSD, to caffeine and tobacco. According to Design Taxi, the necklaces are made in stainless steel and finished with a matte black powder coating with a gun- metal chain or uncoated with a silver- plated chain. Each piece is uniquely represented by simplified representations of their molecular structures.
