Moons of Mars Bracelet
Proportional Distances in Beads
Jasper, Moonstone, and Glass

Hooray! Our Solar System Jewelry series has been featured by BuzzFeed,The Planetary Society, MAKE: NASA, and NPR's Science Friday!

1 bead = ~1,000 kilometers (~620 miles).

Celebrate the passionate and complex love affair between Earth and Mars!
Mars and its Moons shine and sparkle in a wearable tribute to our mysterious and exciting neighbor planet.

Mars' Moons, Phobos and Deimos, are represented on the bracelet according to their proportional distance from Mars: each "space" bead represents approximately 1,000 kilometers (~620 miles).*

Mars' dusty reddish iron oxide surface is represented with Jasper stone in swirly red, black and light brown hues; and Mars' charming irregularly-cratered Moons are ethereal shiny pink and lavender Moonstone.

Mars = Jasper
Phobos = Lavender Moonstone
Deimos = Light Pink Moonstone
Space = Glass

*Not for use in actual Space Travel

    In 2010, NASA made a tutorial from our MiniVerse Necklace, and our kit won the Maker Faire Blue Ribbon! Since then, we've seen cheap knock-offs of the design, often copying our name "MiniVerse", without permission. We are not affiliated with these sellers, and cannot provide any guarantees or customer service for their products.

    Here's where you can find our original pieces:
    - Our Etsy shop: chainofbeing.etsy.com

    We test everything, and our jewelry should last a long time under normal fashion jewelry wear conditions.

    But, please note, our items are not "indestructible" :)

    We recommend removing your jewelry before bathing, swimming, sports, or any activity that will place unusual stress on your jewelry.

    These items are not designed to go in the washing machine, dryer, microwave, or dishwasher.

    These items are not designed to be load-bearing (please do not hang anything from them or tie them around something).

    Bulk Discounts & Wholesale

    Materials & Variations

    We use high-quality Natural Gemstones for all our Planets! Please expect variations in Gemstone texture and color. We do not use dyed gems. We prioritize quality and color rather than needing to find a specific gem.

    All other beads, such as the spacer beads, Sun, and some of the small rings, are high-quality colorfast glass, glass/stone composite, or mother-of-pearl.

    Occasional variations in stones, clasps & findings may occur, based on trends and availability.

    Rush Items

    *We can’t always rush items, but we’ll try!*

    (Please note, we do not “expedite” orders - your order will still be processed in the order received.)

    We thank you in advance for your patience!
    We are a small, 2-person shop,
    and we make everything ourselves,
    so our process can be delayed
    by emergencies and unforeseen events,
    competition between in-person and online sales,
    or high volumes of orders due to good reviews and holidays.

    If for some reason your order is delayed,
    we will do our best to contact you as soon as we can.

    Average:

    Awesome dainty little bracelet to complement some of my other space themed pieces. The shipping was pretty quick, once it was finally sent out. Fully recyclable envelope was used, bonus points for that. There was a slight delay, probably from seasonal demand, but the seller sent out an update, which was nice. The quality is really great, and a beautiful jasper bead was used. I requested an adjustable chain for fears over sizing. Got it to fit comfortably.





    Took a little bit long to ship but worth the wait!
