Atom-inspired Necklace




About: Art is my comfort buddy~ ^-^V “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” -Thomas Merton

We may never be able to touch atoms but we can surely make models of them. This necklace is just inspired of atoms though this is not the most defined form( it doesn't have electrons circling around the nucleus) P.S. In reality, electrons don't circle atoms so there are no orbits around the nucleus.

Step 1: Preparation

Prepare the following:

Step 2: Making the Center of the Necklace P. 1

  • Assemble the wires in the proper way of how the atom rings look like.
  • You can add glue to the side of the marble.

Step 4: Final Touch

Sorry for the late reply. I only used an old G.I. wire but of course you can use any wire available.
