The Science:

The James Webb Space Telescope will launch in 2018 and replace the Hubble Space Telescope. It was completed in 2016 and consists of a 21 foot gold plated mirror array that inspired the shape of these earrings. This telescope will be powerful enough to see 13 billion years into the past.

What inspired the ideas for these jewelry pieces and what is your personal connection to them?

Emily: These pieces represent the tools we use to understand the Universe, and as such they’re both a celebration of the remarkable technological achievements we are capable of as a species, as well as the big questions we will try to answer with this telescope.

Summer: For the engineer still inside me, these pieces emphasize how amazingly creative we humans are to pull more and more information out of the light the Universe sends to us. Hubble, Kepler, and JWST are phenomenal feats of engineering, each of which has (and will) open(ed) new frontiers of science for us. Holding these designs in my hand reminds me how we reach for the stars even though we’re stuck here on Earth.
