This solar system lanyard has black beads all along the strands with beads to depict the sun, planets, Earth's moon & the Space Shuttle. When I was in school we learned about Pluto so that planet has been included also. Down by the ornate swivel clasp is the Sun and the Planets run up the strand in order of distance from the sun.

All these beads are on a black waxed thread and the sun is tied on with a macrame square knot down by the ornate swivel clasp. The knot is reinforced with glue so it won't untie.
There is a lobster clasp to hook the two ends together around the neck and the length that goes around the neck is 36" long. Full length (when hooked together) from lobster clasp to the ornate swivel clasp is 21.5".
