Celestial Objects


As you might imagine from the name of my studio, "Orion Arts", I am fascinated by the beauty of the night sky and its constellations. Orion the hunter has always been my favorite, and I eagerly await his appearance in the winter sky. Incidentally, my cat, Orion, is also an excellent hunter.

A quilting friend of mine created my craft show banner which features Orion (the constellation not the cat) doing battle with her interpretation of the Orion Nebula. It is a beautiful and striking piece.


 

Here is a wonderful picture of the real Orion nebula taken from the Hubble space telescope (click on it to see a larger view). For more great space pictures check out spacetelescope.org.


 

My latest designs are based on actual or fanciful astronomical objects and events like solar or lunar eclipses, birth of a star, planets, comets, solar flares, nebulae, etc. Each is an object of beauty. Each is made of fine silver. Some incorporate my own handmade silver and/or flamework glass beads. In many of the designs, the central bead rotates on an axis for added interest.

No two are alike and I haven't run out of ideas yet! So, keep watching this spot for the latest in celestial events.

Prices include the sterling silver chain or neck ring and range from $ 45 through $150 to. infinity!
