Necklaces Show Molecular Structure Of Narcotics [Pics]

Fashion designer creates six different accessories of dopamine, nicotine, LSD and even caffeine.

Ahora Silhouettes fashioned a collection of narcotic-inspired accessories that represents the actual molecular makeup of drugs. Designed by Tania Hennesy, the Designer Drugs collection includes six different structures, such as dopamine, nicotine and LSD. Coffee fanatics will be glad to know that the designer made extra efforts to create a caffeine molecule out of stainless steel as well. Fueled by creativity and a hunger to be different, Hennesy wants these criminal pieces to represent hedonism, indulgence and over-the-top debauchery.

The designer refers to the individual necklaces by their used street names, which include Spliff, Candy Flipping, Speedball and Tripping Balls. Odd, but definitely fitting to the design’s quirky aesthetics. In an interview, Hennesy shared how these one-of-a-kind necklaces took shape:

I created a set of rules in Adobe Illustrator to allow me to design pieces that worked within the limitations of the material yet still allowed them to be intricately cut into strong jewelry pieces.

For an overdose of fashion, you can find the fantastical collection on the Ahora Silhouettes website. Prices range from $50 and up.
