Solar System (plus Pluto) Handmade with hot glass by copperrein Solar System (plus Pluto) Handmade with hot glass by copperrein
View full please.

I've been geeking out on space ever since my daughter and I attended a MSL landing science sleepover (care of the NASA Glenn center). This is one of the results.

A FULL solar system, including the rejected planetoid Pluto, made completely from glass by myself in my studio. From the rings of Saturn, to the gouge on the surface of Mars, I have tried to capture the essence of each planet. Pluto is even a lop-sided mess of materials trapped in ice (clear glass).

I will be making these into an "out of the world" necklace which I may sell. I dunno...I might keep this one...it's sexy geeky awesome thus far.

My other glass work can be seen and purchased here: [link]

UPDATE: Here's the WIP of the necklace: [link]

Solar System (plus Pluto) Handmade with hot glass by =copperrein is equal parts geeky and beautiful. All the details that were taken into consideration are remarkable and fun to spot, not to mention they were made with glass. ( Suggested by MrChopiChong and Featured by Talty )

Thank you! I could have made a Sun, but it would have needed to have been so large the design of the finished necklace [link] would have looked wonky.

Is that the price for the entire necklace?
And right now I can't afford it, but I'm definitely interested! Maybe sometime in the future. It might not be for a few months until I can really afford... But I'll let you know!
