Is there anything more entrancing than rural star-gazing on a clear night? This series captures favorite constellations in sparkling formation to shine every evening. They’re even more glorious in the day, as the prismatic Egyptian Asfour crystal catches sunlight to cast dancing rainbows, reminiscent of the spectral analyses that identify characteristics of stars.
The constellations shine on a backdrop of delicate gunmetal plate chain that hugs your skin and are composed of light-catching crackle glass and Asfour crystal. Brighter, lower magnitude stars are represented as crystal, while dimmer, higher magnitude stars in the constellation are represented by crackle glass. These necklaces are meant to be worn close to the base of the neck and are adjustable in length to fit accordingly. A stunning star-swept backdrop of crackle glass and Asfour crystal provides the adjustability seamlessly and elegantly.
Ursa Minor (Little Dipper)
Ursa Minor, or the Little Bear, was named in combination with Ursa Major and is home to the Ursids meteor shower. The star at the tip of a very long bear tail (…), or ladle handle if you’re from North America, is Polaris, the North Star. It’s actually a three star system with two smaller stars in orbit. Ursa Minor is also home to a big, beautiful Seyfert galaxy – one with a supermassive black hole at its center.
