I love gemstones. I love crystals. I shop for beads pretty much constantly... I found some new beads that I got attracted to (big surprise). They look more like the planets to me than other beads I've seen...
So I thought (like usual) that I had better include them in the lineup!
Feel free to include any or all of them in your design!
But, of course, this is actually impossible. The sun is a bazillion times bigger than Mercury or Pluto. If I made them actually proportional, Mercury would be invisible and the Sun would break your neck.
I have some really big beads that I like to use for the Sun, and I tend to like to use a bigger bead for the Moon, since it's so close in size (from our perspective here on Earth)... But a lot of people would not like a gigantic Sun bead. I chose 12mm for the Sun & Moon, and ranged down to 6mm for Pluto and Mercury.
I constantly study Astrology and learn new aspects of it... Moon phases caught my interest recently. New MOON PHASES BEADS & EARRINGS..
If you are into Moon Phases, in the natal chart, moon phase beads can add an extra element to your jewelry piece.
The retarded planets. I have four. They evidently cause some problems. Maybe you have some, too. The solution to coding them into a natal chart piece struck me the other day... faceted beads. Duh. Only took me 14 years to figure that out. Let me know if you want them in yours!
