Description

----
We didn't want to make just any 'ol meteorite necklace. We want our jewelry to be a work of art --- a beautiful gift for a loved one who loves space, or for yourself. To remind you to always look up.

——

We’ve been working on this capsule for a long time, and we're pretty joyed that we've accomplished it. Space, the stars, the heavens.. have always instilled, in us, a sense of mystery and curiosity. As far as possessions go, we're a pretty minimal family (minus all of our lab equipment!), so we find it important to put things into the world that really matter —that are lasting and moving. It’s our hope that this is a contribution to that.

While we may not be able to travel through all of time and space (yet!…or ever?) this necklace can remind you, or a dear friend or loved one, that there's much more to life than what is in front of our eyes.

When I'm wearing my necklace, people sometimes come up to me and ask, “does that open?” which is usually followed by “what’s in it?”. You know, just a little conversation can start a spark —perhaps that's just enough for people to go out and become a little intrigued, maybe even look up at the stars for the first time in a very a long time....

"Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future.” -Mr. H.G. Wells

Your Capsule Contents and Ingredients:

|| One brass time capsule, engraved with our motto ‘a terra ad astra’ Latin
for ‘from the Earth to the Stars’ (capsule height: 4.4cm / 1.75in)
|| One sealed, glass vial containing 100-110mg of fall NWA869 meteorite
dust
|| A choice of either our link necklace chain (18 inches long) or our ball
chain ( 24 inches long, 1.5mm diameter )
|| One signed specimen card, stamped with the capsule’s date of creation
and assembly
|| *Optional typewritten note within the capsule (100 max. characters)
|| One recycled-cotton, drawstring carrying bag
|| All exquisitely packaged using recycled paper boxes, cotton, and misc.
|| *Your parcel will include your typewriter-typed mailing address on the top of your parcel
(please see 4th and 5th photo)


*all of our custom notes & shipping addresses are hand-typed on our vintage typewriter (*see 5th photo for an example of note aesthetics)

Because of the inherent nature of brass to weather over time, your capsule colour will deepen over the years, giving further character to its already beautiful aesthetics. Your specimen will vary in size, shape, and colour, as each specimen has its own qualities.

5% of every time capsule purchase goes towards crowd-funded projects that support space and science education and exploration.
