The moment you were born was written in the stars. This 18"-necklace beading board makes it easy to string your own birth chart necklaces - the perfect gift for zodiac lovers, new moms, or astrology nerds.
The planets and zodiac constellations are constantly moving - never in the same place twice. Each necklace you create will be as individual as the amazing human you're making it for!
This board is fully adjustable to accommodate your ascendant, planets and 12 houses (fixed). If you know your ascendant, set the zodiac wheel so that your ascendant sign is at 9-o'clock (see photo labeled "I know my ascendant"). If you do not know your ascendant, simply set the zodiac wheel so that Capricorn and Sagittarius are at the very top, in the 11-o'clock and 12-o'clock hours (see photo labeled "I don't know my ascendant").
Referencing a printout of your natal chart (I like the ones from Cafe Astrology!), choose a bead for each planet and place in its proper "orbit" until you're ready to string your necklace (see recommended beads below).
Board will come unfinished - leave it as-is or paint or stain it to your desired finish (give it a light sanding with fine-grit sandpaper before you apply any color or stain).
Each one is made from birch plywood and is as unique as the tree it came from. I hope you like them!
Full necklace board measures 9.125" in diameter. Beading channel is 18" in circumference for an 18" finished necklace.
