“MiniVerse” Solar System Bracelet
Proportional Distances of the Solar System - Measured in Beads

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

You are Here!
A beaded bracelet demonstrating the relative distances
between the planet orbits in our Solar System.

Distances between planet orbits are proportionally accurate,
with each tiny black glass bead loosely approximating
~40 million miles / ~64 million kilometers of Space.

A wearable version of an astrometric chart,
with stone, glass, and shell beads representing the Sun and Planets,
this Solar System Bracelet is a decorative cosmogram,
inspiring thoughts of the vastness of Space.

Planets and Sun are enlarged for dramatic emphasis*.

This bracelet includes the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth & our Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Planets with many moons have opalescent glass beads next to them on the bracelet.

*Not for use in actual Space Navigation

Length: 7.5 inches / 19 centimeters
Lobster-claw Clasp
(please note it will be slightly different than the barrel clasp pictured)
