Description

This piece was created to honor the 2011 closing of NASA's Space Shuttle Program. This program will have run for over 50 years and have sent 130 missions to the cosmos, in addition to completing the International Space Station.

The base for this piece is a vintage gold-plated bracelet that was sold to commemorate the Apollo program, which landed the first human beings on the Earth's moon. The original charm bracelet (which I purchased on its original card), came with 4 charms, I added the rest of the charms and baubles. The charms in order are:

1.Grey wire-wrapped quartz briolette to signify Mercury, with practically no atmosphere, all that is seen of Mercury is its rocky surface.

2. Brass Florida charm, the location of the Kennedy Space Center (Cocoa, Florida).

3. Yellow wire-wrapped quartz briolette to signify Venus, and the thick sulfuric acid clouds on this planet.

4. "N" to spell out N-A-S-A

5. Vintage gold-plated moon charm, part of the original bracelet.

6. Green wire-wrapped faceted quartz briolette to symbolize the Earth and its various lifeforms.

7. Brass star charm to signify the stars seen from the moon.

8. Gold pewter camera charm with a faceted Swarovski crystal center. Cameras are a staple on moon missions to photograph the magnificent sights.

9. "A" to spell out N-A-S-A

10. "Apollo" a gold-plated charm from the original bracelet.

11. Red wire-wrapped faceted briolette to signify the rusty rocks on Mars surface.

12. Brass postcard charm with the words "I love you" scripted on there. The astronauts often write letters home.

13. Vintage gold-plated building, to signify Wasington, DC and the government's influence over NASA.

14. Orange wire-wrapped quartz briolette to symbolize the orange ammonium hydrosulfide clouds around Jupiter.

15. "S" to spell out N-A-S-A

16. Vintage gold-plated spaceship charm; part of the original bracelet.

17. Pale yellow wire-wrapped faceted quartz briolette to symbolize the white ammonia haze that covers Saturn.

18. Antiqued gold pewter bicycle to symbolize the stationary bike the astronauts' use aboard the spaceship to exercise.

19. Brass dog stamping to symbolize Laika, the first dog in space.

20. Light blue wire-wrapped faceted quartz briolette to symbolize Uranus' methane clouds.

21. "A" to finish spelling-out N-A-S-A

22. Vintage gold-plated astronaut charm from the original charm bracelet.

23. Darker light blue wire-wrapped facted quartz briolette to symbolize the methane on Neptune, but this appears darker than Uranus due to the duller illumination.

24. Brass treble clef charm to symbolize the music the astronauts' listen to aboard the spaceship.

25. Brass comet or shooting star charm.

26. Light brown wire-wrapped quartz briolette to signify the dirty methane ice on the surface of Pluto, which, was classified as a planet for most of NASA's existence.

27. 1950's vintage signed Coro locket that opens to hold four photos, perhaps of the astronauts' loved one. This locket was created the same decade as NASA. The locket is in great condition. At least one of the turquoise beads appears to have been replaced.

28. A stamped "basilthecat" charm. Hopefully Basil will be the last cat NASA takes to space.

This bracelet measures approximately 7 inches. One of the links shows some chipping in the plating but no other wear is evident on the bracelet itself.

Please contact me with any questions.
