My Honor Roll rocket brooch/necklaces each honor someone (real or fictional) who inspired me to create these pieces.
The pieces in THIS group are all sterling silver and made in a LIMITED EDITION of 12.
All pieces are about 2 inches in hight and come with a 24 inch sterling silver chain, so they may be worn as a brooch or as a necklace.
the Astro Cady rocket brooch/necklace
Colonel (retired) Catherine “Cady” Coleman, Ph D
An unassuming woman of modest hight Cady is giant in her achievements. Literally a rocket scientist, Cady holds a Ph D in polymer science & engineering – which she put to use in support of America’s space program. As a NASA astronaut she served aboard 2 space shuttle missions and was the first woman to serve aboard the international space station. She logged more than 4,330 hours in space.
And she plays the flute.
For her contributions to space flight, and her appreciation of the arts, I was inspired to make this brooch/necklace (in her honor).
