So intriguing, how a star is born…
A star is born when atoms of light elements are squeezed under enough pressure for their nuclei to undergo fusion. … And once the fusion reactions begin, they exert an outward pressure. As long as the inward force of gravity and the outward force generated by the fusion reactions are equal, the star remains stable.
Clouds of gas are common in our galaxy and in other galaxies like ours. These clouds are called nebulae. A typical nebula is many light-years across and contains enough mass to make several thousand stars the size of our sun. The majority of the gas in nebulae consists of molecules of hydrogen and helium–but most nebulae also contain atoms of other elements, as well as some surprisingly complex organic molecules. These heavier atoms are remnants of older stars, which have exploded in an event we call a supernova. The source of the organic molecules is still a mystery.
Stars, nebulae, supernovas, all inspiration for this piece. The star is made from copper, one of the elements that make up everything that exists on our planet. Glass leopard beaded chain and vintage Italian acrylic accent. An accessory that reminds us that we are all made of the stuff of stars.
Pair this piece with Leopard Ring, Star Earrings, and Ball and Chain Necklace to complete the look.
