After receiving my B.S. in Neuroscience and working in a neuroscience research lab, I wanted to show the world the beautiful and incredible nature of the microscopic world! Not only are the structures of the brain intricate, but they are also beautiful and meant to be seen by everyone, not just scientists!
My research mentor's friend took these photos of dopamine neurons at her lab using an electron microscope:

While taking a stained glass class near my town, I had the idea to combine my passions for art and science and use microscope slides as the glass for my jewelry!
