Here's the fun part: Selecting beads for the different planets. Look for beads that seem appropriate in size and color. A big yellow or gold bead for the sun. Greenish/bluish for the earth. Saturn gets to spin inside a ring; the moon can be pock-marked or smooth. Add some sparkly beads in between to represent stars or asteroids.
Put it all together and you have a very unique piece of jewelry that also looks awesome!
