Maria Skłodowska-Curie was a Polish-born French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel prize and the only person to win a Nobel prize in two fields, physics and chemistry. Her husband, Pierre, was a co-winner on her first Nobel Prize, making them the first ever married couple to win the Nobel Prize and launching the Curie family legacy of five Nobel Prizes. She was, in 1906, the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris.
While a French citizen, Marie used both of her surnames and never lost her sense of Polish identity. She taught her daughters Polish, took them on visits to Poland, She named the first chemical element she discovered polonium, after her native country.
All pieces are created from start to finish in my home studio, nestled in one of Richland's historic "Alphabet Houses". The JH atomic logo is a nod to the history and science of the area.
Each piece of jewelry comes carefully packaged and gift wrapped with a signature blue satin ribbon.
