Swarovski Crystal Jewelry:: Industrial Elegance Planetary Series

I thought I would do a post here about the Industrial Elegance Planetary Series which I have been spending soooo much time on lately! I wanted to show them all together here.

I will only be making 3 different versions of each planet (3 different necklaces & 3 different earrings) Each version will have a different name...
Version 1: (Planet Name)
Version 2: (planet name) Revisited
Version 3: (planet name) Departure

Each version will be completely original in design...


Sol::
Our Sun, the star at the center of our solar system which all of the planets orbit... without it life on earth would not be possible.













Mercury::
the closest planet to the Sun, named after the swift footed messenger god which they
equated with the Greek Hermes, because it moves across the sky faster than any other planet.













Venus::
The second-closest planet to the Sun, orbiting it every 224.7 Earth days. The planet is named after Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Except for the Moon it is the brightest natural object in the night sky













Earth::
the third planet from the Sun, and the largest of the terrestrial planets in the Solar System in terms of diameter, mass and density. It is also referred to as th
e World, Blue Planet,and Terra.

(earth revisited sold but the buyer never paid for it so it has been relisted)

























Earth Departure Coming soon...

Mars::
The fourth planet from the Sun in the Solar System. The planet is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. Referred to as the "Red Pla
net"

























Jupiter::
The fifth planet from the Sun and the largest planet within the Solar System… Named after the Roman god Jupiter or Jove, king of the gods, and the god of sky and thunder.


























Saturn::
The sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in the Solar System. Named after th
e Roman god Saturnus (that became the namesake of Saturday), equated to the Greek Kronos (the Titan father of Zeus) the Babylonian Ninurta and to the Hindu Shani. Saturn's symbol represents the god's sickle .













Neptune::
The eighth planet from the Sun. Named for the Roman god of the sea, it is the fourth
-largest planet by diameter and the third-largest by mass.












Neptune II coming soon...

Uranus::
The seventh planet from the Sun, and the third-largest and fourth most massive planet in the Solar System. It is named after the ancient Greek deity of the sky Uranus the father of Kronos (Saturn) and grandfather of Zeus (Jupiter).













Pluto::
The second-largest known dwarf planet in the solar system, Like the other planets (or former planet in this case), Pluto is named for a Roman god. The Greek equivalent of Pluto is Hades














****Please Note: The retaining rings used to create these pieces were not made for jewelry, they are hardware for keeping pins in machinery so there will be color variations, I do my best to completely match the rings to each other but sometimes it just isn't possible... the fact that they are not uniform in color and cosistancy adds to the charm of these pieces and just reinforces the overall "Industrial" look

If you love the design of any of these pieces but would like them with different colored crystals please don't hesitate to contact me. As always, clicking on the pictures of the items (the ones that are not sold that is) will take you directly to the Etsy listing.

Thanks for stopping by, I would LOVE to hear what you think about the whole collection!
