Mini Solar System Earrings in Stone and Glass
Proportional Distance measured in Beads

1 Bead = ~20 million miles / ~32 million kilometers

Hooray! Our Solar System Jewelry series has been featured by The Planetary Society, MAKE: NASA, and NPR's Science Friday!

You are Here!
Beaded earrings demonstrating the relative distances between planet orbits, from the Sun to Jupiter.

The first earring includes the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, and Mars. The second continues where the first ends, representing the Asteroid Belt and Jupiter.

Distances are proportionally accurate, with each tiny black glass bead representing approximately 20 million miles of Space.

Although the shapes of the planets are different, the earrings are equal in weight and length.

A wearable version of an Astrometric chart, with stone, glass, and shell beads representing the sun and planets, this pair of earrings is a decorative cosmogram, inspiring thoughts of the vastness of space.

Planets, Asteroids, and Sun are enlarged for dramatic emphasis*.

*Not for use in actual space navigation

Earring Drop Length: 8cm / 3.25in
