Journeying to the stars continues to trigger our imagination and our desire for exploration. Science fiction emerged nearly 300 hundred years with Gulliver's Travels written by Jonathan Swift in which the title character embarks on explorations to fantastic societies, followed by Mary Shelley's nightmare scientific monster in Frankenstein in 1818. Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Robert A. Heinlein are the most well known science fiction writers, creating such stories as I, Robot and Starship Troopers which feature the conventional stories of humans, technology, and often disastrous combinations thereof. Ursula Le Guin was one of the first women authors to break into science fiction with The Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossessed, both which gender-bending narratives and thoughtful reflections on extraterrestrial societies. This 18" patina copper necklace celebrates traditional icons from science fiction: a sterling silver spaceship and a 14kt gold-fill Saturn-like planet (with rings). These are attached to a colorful patina copper disc and hang from the patina copper bar and cable chain that fastens with a 14kt gold-fill magnetic clasp.

Cost: $59.00 USD
