Astronomy

Our Astronomy jewelry series measures the distances of Space, with each bead representing an approximate unit of distance. Each necklace or bracelet is a roughly-proportional wearable astrometric chart, with stone, glass, and shell beads representing the sun and planets; a decorative cosmogram, inspiring thoughts of the vastness of Space.
