AC001 Solar System Bracelet
The Planet beads are separated by black space beads and strung on a sterling silver chain in the same order as they orbit our sun. Saturn’s Rings are made of Sterling Silver and strung with the Saturn bead. The last bead on the chain is a black bead with a spiral galaxy. The bracelet has a sterling silver catch and extender chain to fit a range of wrist sizes.
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 NASA images of the planets. The beads for each System are chosen, strung on the sterling silver chain and the catch added. Each System bracelet may differ slightly from the image.
