Stellar Obsession

My sweet little nephew has developed an obsession for all things astronomical.

I think it was my fault.

I brought home the giant book of planets, galaxies, moons and nebulae that has had him enamored for the past week.

The Eagle Nebula

To tell you the truth, I think we're both enamored.
And it's starting to creep into my creative mind, I can't help it....

Flat sheets of copper are becoming nebula when I'm not watching, emerging from under a jeweler's saw and exploding into the air with flames of dust and gas.

Capturing the heat of a thousand stars and the infinite bigness that is our universe.

My first set stone...

in honor of nebula with a thousand suns and a little boy with a stellar obsession.


  1. What? No Beads! What have you done with Marcie? Seriously, your piece is beautiful and those little jagged edges tooks tons of patience and will to carve out. My jeweler saw is cursed. I just look at it and a blade breaks.

  2. Wow! Your work with the copper on this pendant is amazing!

  3. Looks amazing Marcie... you should be very proud of this piece. I am sure it will hold a special place in your heart for years to come representing the beautiful bond you have with your nephew in addition to your newfound talent!
