Asteroid Belt

~Asteroid Belt~ Sterling Silver Orbiting Lampwork Beads

It's been a while since I've posted, but I've still been hard at work!

This is one of my newest creations. For years my son has been enthralled with space. He feeds me sporadic blurbs of information here and there...the cold, hard truth...I actually learn facts that I'm not sure I was taught in school~ouch! HOWEVER...we were not so long ago discussing the inner and outer planets and how they are separated by the asteroid belt...hence the name for this necklace.

As soon as I saw these lampwork beads it brought the asteroid belt to mind. The vast mass of asteroids encircling a dark space which contains the inner planets. And I stayed with the whole belt, orbiting, rotating sense by linking the beads with the elongated springs. This keeps the necklace moving...or orbiting if you will.

This necklace is currently not in my Etsy shop...I will be listing it when I have a chance.


  1. I LOVE this! Fantastic design, fabulous wire work. Awesomne!

  2. Great! This would be the perfect business jewelry for me, as I work for a firm building satellite devices.
