Silver necklace caffeine molecule


In addition to the stimulating effect we experience from caffeine, this alkaloid has other properties. In the coffee plant, caffeine acts as an insect repellent by paralysing certain insects that feed on the plant. Bees are welcome, of course, as for them caffeine acts as a lure and is a wonderful smelling pheromone.

This silver necklace is ideal gift for chemists, baristas, avid coffee drinkers and anyone who appreciates the beauty of this molecule.

Nina Designs is a jewellery brand with a heart of gold. They make fair trade jewellery in Thailand and Bali and try to work as ethically and ecologically as possible. Their wages are well above national minimum wages, employees receive an extra month's wage as an end-of-year bonus. In addition, workers receive a food allowance for lunches. The company provides health care, with a doctor on call for staff medical needs. Expectant mothers receive education about prenatal care and safe delivery. Mothers receive three months paid maternity leave or six months on half pay. Their hospital fees are also covered. In Bali, fifty percent of managers at the production facility are women, a figure that is even more impressive in Indonesia than it would be in the EU.

Nina Designs uses as much recycled silver as possible, and for every package they send, they plant a tree that will be part of a so called "forest garden". They give out microloans to skilled women artisans and support different NGO's for human rights, literacy and the environment.
