Hand-made earrings showing the planets
These hand-made earrings were conceived and designed by me and my husband last year. The earrings represent the sun, moon and planets in our solar system using semi-precious gemstone beads.
We have chosen beads which represent the actual colours and, to some degree, the relative sizes of the celestial bodies. They have been arranged in the Golden Spiral.
The earrings are designed to lie flat against your head. From the front, you will see the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Earth.
