I asked my fiance about how to generate feedback, and she mentioned that playing with the compass was a lot of fun when it had the "orbit" steel bearings. I offered to make her a necklace with a compass inside. The jar I used previously had a wider mouth and almost the same diameter at the top and bottom, but the glass kind I have are slim at the top and widened past the lid. I drafted a single-support design that can fit through the jar's mouth.

I ran through several iterations to make one that fits an old axle, then made a second with different dimensions since I did not make consistently-sized aluminum rods. The wood ring around the outside had to be small enough to fit through the jar's mouth, although the steel bearings moved to the side and reasserted themselves on the magnet.
