"Alis volat propriis" -- Latin for "she flies with her own wings." It is the perfect description of a smart, strong, independent woman who, by virtue of her hard work and determination, has made a place for herself in this world. The phrase is hand-stamped on a 1" brushed nickel pendant. It is domed, with a soft matte finish, and hangs on your choice of an 18" steel snake chain or an adjustable black leather cord.
Smart, strong, determined women
(Also smart, strong, determined men, as the Latin phrase is technically gender neutral)

For my independent thinking, strong and morally sound daughter
...my step-daughter suffers with low self esteem, always a fight to just nudge her along, in almost everything, she graduated high school and this May college, with a degree in a field she will excel at, for the first time she is looking forward instead of her feet, I saw the bracelet, it was for her. Her battle her success, a little token of respect, to let her know, her mother and I noticed.
I bought Christmas presents for my friends who are science majors on this site, and they all came early, were packaged beautifully, and are made so well. The craftsmanship is so impressive. I bought the brain necklace, bacteriophage necklace, and binary love necklace and they're truly all such beautiful pieces, this is going to be my go-to site for presents now. Truly quality products, highly recommend.
Boutique Academia seems like a really lovely organization- my necklace arrived promptly and with great customer service pre-post delivery. My daughter loved the necklace which looks like the picture and is made of quality materials. So many cool things on the website, I will be purchasing again!
I love this company and all it represents. I lovingly describe it to people as "nerd jewelry", self identifying as such from my roots as a biology geek, but I mean it lovingly and I recommend B.A. to many people. From scientists, to coders, to teachers and therapists, everything the company offers piques my interest. I have ordered teacher and holiday gifts from you for years, and this year will be gifting myself the Latin necklace as inspo for 2020, and the two Serotonin, Dopamine, & Acetylcholine necklaces to therapists I know who work so hard for their patients. Thanks again for making inspiring stuff that rises about the rest. Excelsior.
I have purchased several pieces from the Boutique Academia and they are all fantastic. Design and construction are perfect. I am planning on purchasing more items as time goes on. You won't be disappointed.
