Here are some known objects to compare it with:
If it could be dangling from the highest
point at the center of the St. Louis
Gateway Arch, the Neverending Necklace would reach down to the bottom of the landmark more
five times over. Wow!
It's definitely a very
But it would be much too long to wear as a necklace for the
Statue of Liberty. From her heel to the top of her head she measures
111', so her necklace should be 30.75' long, if compared to an 18"
human-size necklace. The Love & Peace Project could provide 107 necklaces (to scale)
for her to wear.
That's a lot of different
necklaces for her to wear.
If you were standing on the very top of the Space Needle in
Seattle holding the necklace, the string of beads would touch the
ground and come back up again, down again, up again and down again and then
up. Confused yet?
The average length per 10 beads equals about 1 foot. If every person just
in Palm Beach County dedicates only one bead that equals 18.94 miles.
If every person in the United States does the same, it comes to 5,681.8
miles and would stretch the necklace from New York, NY all the
way to Los Angeles, CA and back. Wow!
But not to worry, it'll get there. In the meantime, we are quite happy
with the way it is now. We are really just starting and there are not enough
volunteers yet to help string all these 350 million beads anyway.
See the Football field, we have more than the length of
ten already, and we'll be
adding many more.
Keep the dedications coming to make the necklace
