1″x 2″, beads and found objects

It’s hard to wrap my head around the idea of things that are super small or super large.  I had a conversation with my daughter yesterday about the idea of atoms.  She said “you can’t kiss an atom because it’s teeny tiny” and then proceeded to kiss her hand, saying “I’m kissing lots of atoms”. We talked briefly about the size of the universe, but moved quickly on to people sizes, a relatively small range of tall people and short people.  This pendant is my nod to our imaginary travel through scales. If I were on the Magic School Bus, maybe kissing an atom would look something like this.
