This choker-length necklace features a red tinted close-up image of two of the six wheels on NASA's Curiosity rover as it traverses the Martian surface, encased on a disk of vintage Bakelite (the first synthetic plastic), uniquely accessorized, complemented with vintage velvet millinery ribbon and adjustable clasp. The juxtaposition of an intriguing image from a cutting-edge interplanetary mission with vintage styles and materials makes for a bold, steampunk-meets-science look.
Pendant is 1.25 inches in diameter and choker is 16 inches in length. Avoid getting this piece wet in order to preserve the image. Handmade in Denver, Colorado, USA.
