“MiniVerse” Solar System Bracelet
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 bracelet demonstrating each planet's distance from the Sun!

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.

This special version of our classic MiniVerse bracelet 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: 8.5 in / 22 cm,
can be extended up to 9.5 in / 24cm by using the chain.

This bracelet is also available in other sizes:

Petite - 6.5 in / 17 cm
