“MiniVerse” Solar System Anklet
We Love Pluto Edition! :)

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.

This special version of our classic MiniVerse anklet features the popular and controversial dwarf planet Pluto as a charm on the end of the fastening chain.

*Not for use in actual Space Navigation

Variable length: 10.5 in / 27 cm,
can be extended up to 11.5 in / 29cm by using the chain.

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

This design is also available as a bracelet:

Standard Bracelet - 8.5 inches / 21 cm
