Planets and Gemstones

MARS - red agate
JUPITER - red banded agate
SATURN - wood jasper
URANUS - amazonite
NEPTUNE - blue banded agate
Created to represent the colour and the relationship of size between each planet
Of course both Saturn and Jupiter would be larger than represented here - as Jupiter would contain all the other planets in our solar system together and the bead would have to be the size of a tennis ball! So, for this necklace Saturn and Jupiter are represented as smaller versions.
The pendant is strung on 19 strand jewellery wire and crimped at each end. In between each gemstone bead there are various sizes of sterling silver tubes and beads.
Sterling silver snake chain: - 16" (40cm) long
Pendant: - 6.5" (16.5cm) long & 0.75" (2cm) wide
Four international bead buyers are on the lookout for me to find gemstone beads that must be the correct size, colour and direction of stripyness - in the case of Jupiter. Of course they have to be matt too - the planets are not shiny! (Although sometimes the beads become shiny with wear.)
The image shown here is an example of the necklace and as all the pieces are created from natural gemstones they will differ from piece to piece. I do endeavour to use beads that look appropriate.
