Elemental trend

As a former chemistry teacher, I love one of the latest trends that's been popping up everywhere--chemical symbols (think Periodic Table) as a design motif. A few of my favorites...

Element rings from INN:itsnoname. Available in three metals, each matching the chemical symbol; silver, gold and platinum. Prices match the type of metal; silver is $255.oo, platinum is $6,6oo.oo.

The just-as-much-fun but much more reasonable priced selection from nicholas and felice on Etsy.

"Geek Magnets" from Anandi on Etsy. She does the "bling" collection shown below, and her dark side comes out in the toxic lead/mercury set.

And the coolest wine label out there right now? Goes to Wines of Substance; a new Washington label being produced by some guys getting some very big recognition. Their website has a fun interactive "Periodic Table of Washington Wines".

Hi Alexa!! Thanks so much for featuring my GeekMagnets!

Wow, that's so cool that you used to be a chemistry teacher.

Though my wedding was 3 years ago yesterday :), I love your blog - I had the *best* time planning my own wedding and love to see what choices other people make.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the nice compliment Anandi, and for the "loan" of your magnets for my post. Love them!

And yes, my strange route to floral/event designer included six years teaching high school chemistry, bio, and genetics. You never know where life will take you I guess! I'm so grateful I've had the chance to try a few different things out.

The wine bottle labels are brilliant!

I love the period table trend too. I was rubbish at chemistry in school but I've still got a soft spot for it!
