This handmade necklace of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) features unbelievably exquisite attention to detail. The miniature replica of the telescope, complete with sunshield and secondary mirror support structure, is created by hand-sculpting a scale model out of wax and then using the wax figurine to cast a duplicate in metal.
Created as part of the James Webb Space Telescope Artist Event in the Fall of 2016. Stern Design Works was one of 22 artists selected nationwide to travel to NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, MD to meet JWST scientists, engineers and other project personnel and see the final mirror assembly in person. This necklace is part of the capsule collection they designed as part of this experience.
Pendant is approximately 0.75 inches by 0.375 inches on a 24 inch chain. Available in brass or sterling silver. Handmade in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
