Announcement   Hooray! Our Solar System Jewelry has been featured by The Planetary Society, BuzzFeed, NPR, MAKE:, and NASA!

Unique Statement Jewelry, with an Intelligent Edge and a Sense of Humor.

We design for a rugged and elegant look, hoping to create a piece perfect for your next black-tie luau or punk-rock opera.

Inspired by historical design concepts, ancient algorithms, informational data sets, and the mysteries of Nature and the Universe, we love making jewelry that feels timeless, as though it could be a trend from the past, the future, or both!

In particular, we love bringing a unique statement to our jewelry designs, like our Solar System Necklace series, Latitude & Longitude Necklace & Bracelet sets, Veins and Arteries Necklaces, Atmospheric Strata, and I Ching Hexagram sequences...

There are so many magical ideas in the Universe - all our designs are created with the intention of making something we've never seen before :)

Although we are a small, 2-person shop, we've had some wonderful success! Our Solar System Necklace and Bracelet designs have been featured by NPR's Science Friday and Carl Sagan's famed Planetary Society, won an "Editor's Choice" Blue Ribbon at MAKE: magazine's Maker Faire, earned accolades from NASA astronomers and inspired a NASA podcast!

I ordered the Pluto edition but I received the original. I contacted the shop and they immediately wrote back and sent me the one I ordered! Both are gorgeous and of good quality. I'm returning the Pluto one Bc I grew attached to the original.

About

Wear What You Love! Unique Infographic & Decorative Jewelry

Our shop started one holiday season, when we decided to make jewelry for our family and friends instead of buying pre-made gifts.

One particular jewelry line stood out from the rest of our designs: a Solar System necklace and bracelet, with glass seed beads and natural stones measuring the distances of space!

The Solar System jewelry series was immediately a hit with science enthusiasts everywhere, earning mentions by The Planetary Society, MAKE:, NASA, and NPR's Science Friday.

Since then, we've developed our Solar System jewelry line to include other celestial phenomena, and started new lines with other infographic themes, representing Earth's Latitudes, Anatomy of the Veins and Arteries, and Layers of the Atmosphere.

Drawing and painting have been passions for both of us for most of our lives as well, and we love translating our drawings into wood, acrylic, and metal, so that they can become jewelry pieces too.

We also love making jewelry that is simply decorative, celebrating the beauty of natural stones, wood, and glass. We design for a rugged and elegant look, hoping to create a piece perfect for your next black-tie luau or punk-rock opera.

Thanks so much for visiting, and have a beautiful day in the Universe!
