My wife is a PhD Physicist and Science Journalist, and I'm a geek. She buys me toy robots as presents, so what do I buy her in return for Valentine's Day?
Well, after much searching in cyberspace (where else?) I happened upon Raven Hanna's website for her Made with Molecules jewellery. Dr Hanna, a Yale-educated molecular biophysicist from San Francisco, has taken inspiration from science and created a range of ear-rings, necklaces, keychains (and even boxer shorts) based on molecules such as seratonin, dopamine and estrogen.
They were quickly dispatched, and arrived hand-packaged in a beautiful recycled paper box, complete with three artisan chocolates!
ps My wife loved them!
