Jewel of the day: Lauren Beacham Solar System Necklace
Who knew that science geekery and jewellery could happily co-exist? This piece by Lauren Beacham is offered by Common Ground. The site notes, “Inspired by our place in the cosmos and the “local color” of our galactic neighborhood, fine art photographer turned jewelry designer Lauren Beacham created this wearable tribute to the Sun and its nine planets. That’s right—Pluto’s still in the line-up, along with the other eight planets of our solar system, each represented by a digital image of the real thing set in a bib-style array of bezels. 18″ chain. Handmade in Maryland.”
The necklace is made with glass, rhodium plated brass, giclee print, and sells for USD$55.
