AC036 Planet Caladan necklace

The Planet Caladan bead is securely set on sterling silver wire, with sterling silver bead caps. It is supplied with a sterling silver chain, or can be ordered on its own to go on your own chain.

The lampwork beads are made, one by one, in my Christchurch, New Zealand, workspace at XCHC, a shared maker space. They are made by melting coloured glass in a gas/oxygen flame and manipulating the surface so they resemble the artist’s image of the planet depicted in David Lynch’s 1984 film Dune.

Caladan is a fictional planet in the Dune universe created by Frank Herbert, first mentioned in the 1965 novel Dune. Caladan, the third planet of Delta Pavonis, is the ancestral fiefdom of House Atreides, who have ruled it for twenty-six generations, from the ancient Castle Caladan. An ocean planet, Caladan’s surface is predominantly covered with water; its climate is characterized by much precipitation and strong winds, but is tolerable enough to make special and expensive weather control measures unnecessary.
