On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States from coast to coast. It will be 28 years before this happens again. Remember this occasion with a beautiful hand-crafted solar eclipse necklace!
The "moon" is made from a heavily hammered, antiqued silver aluminum disc. Behind is a lightly weathered brass "sun". With time, the sun disc will develop a patina with unique individual variations, reminiscent of sunspots. You can keep it shiny by rubbing with steel wool, or you can let it age beautifully. To visually capture the essence of an eclipse, the sun disc is larger than the moon disc, and although technically an annular eclipse, you can imagine the bright brass ring as the corona if you prefer... or simply as a poetic visual representation of the moon moving between us and the sun. The necklace comes hung on an 18 inch sterling silver chain. As hand-crafted jewelry, each pendant is unique and will be the perfect keepsake for your eclipse viewing experience.
Love, joy, and learning...does it get any better than that? This beautiful neurotransmitter necklace includes dopamine, serotonin, and acetylcholine. It's the perfect scientific symbol of a balanced, happy life.
The pendants are made from lead-free, nickel-free zinc alloy, separated by non-tarnishing steel beads. They are hand-strung on an 18 inch non-tarnishing steel snake chain.
"She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."
This is the story of influential women throughout history, all over the world. Despite opposition, they did not give up. Neither will we. We are a worldwide persisterhood of strong, smart, hardworking women. Take heart... summon courage... and PERSIST!
Hand-stamped bronze and aluminum cuff bracelets. Over time, the bronze will develop a lovely patina; rub with steel wool to remove the patina if you prefer. The aluminum silver will never tarnish. Both will last a lifetime. Lightweight, adjustable, fits most wrists. Measures 1/4" in width, and 2 1/2" in diameter at the widest point.
"Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can. Because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself."
Here may be the only piece of jewelry in the world that attempts to capture our universe in such exquisite detail. In this magnificent pendant, we use an artist's logarithmic scale conception of the local region of the universe, with the Solar System at the center, inner and outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, and nearby galaxies.
Our miniature universe is microprinted on a translucent disc within a steel and glass locket. When worn, it looks like a stylized black pendant with a dark interior, matching everything. But when you hold it up to the light, incredible detail bursts into appearance. The graphic was created by Pablo Carlos Budassi, Mendoza, Argentina (G+, Facebook) and recently went viral online. The pendant comes with a heavyweight gunmetal chain, available in a short length (18 inches) or long length (32 inches).View full product details
Sunlight. Its energy and warmth make life possible. No matter the darkness of the night, there is always hope on the horizon with the sunrise. May light, hope, warmth, and love chase away the shadows...and illuminate the path before you on your journey through life.
As a symbol of sunlight, we have microprinted the solar spectrum on a translucent disc within a steel and glass locket. When worn, it looks like a silver pendant with a dark interior, matching everything. But when you hold it up to the light, you see a magnificently detailed rainbow with tiny black lines representing the chemical makeup of our sun. The spectrum image used here was created by N.A.Sharp at the Fourier Transform Spectrometer at the McMath-Pierce Solar Facility at the National Solar Observatory on Kitt Peak. Credit and thanks to: NOAO/NSO/Kitt Peak FTS/AURA/NSF. The pendant comes with a steel rounded box link chain or as a keychain. The chain is available in a short length (18 inches) or long length (26 inches).
The purpose of this piece is to spread hope. 50% of net proceeds from the Solar Spectrum Necklace will be donated to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit working in crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBT+ youth.View full product details
