Tiny Silver Dot Studs in Original 'Pale Blue Dot' Blue
£36.00 Sold Out
These simple, easy-to-wear everyday studs are handmade in Sterling silver filled with resin mixed to match the colour of Earth as seen from space. They measure 5mm in diameter and come with Sterling silver scrolls.
The Tiny Dot Studs were originally inspired by a quotation from a book by Carl Sagan called 'Pale Blue Dot'. The book was named after an image of Earth taken by the Voyager 1 space probe from the edge of our Solar System. The Voyager 1 space probe was launched by NASA in 1977 to study the outer Solar System and – now the most distant manmade object from Earth – still communicates with us today. On board it carries a golden record with peace greetings to the Universe in 55 different languages, including whale song.
Each little dot essentially conveys a message of peace across space and time, and it pleases me to think that pieces of my Pale Blue Dot collection have now travelled to all corners of the world.
The studs come in a little organza bag and will be carefully packaged to ensure that they are not damaged in transit.
