“MiniVerse” Solar System Anklet
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 ankle-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 Anklet is a decorative cosmogram,
inspiring thoughts of the vastness of Space.

Planets and Sun are enlarged for dramatic emphasis*.

This anklet 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 anklet.

*Not for use in actual Space Navigation

Lobster-Claw Clasp
Length: 9.5 inches / 24.5 centimeters

This anklet is designed to sit comfortably just below the main bones of the ankle.
