The Merging Galaxies jewelry collection is based on three main elements in different sizes. There are two kinds of centerpieces representing the galaxies, two kinds of links representing planet systems, and the earpiece representing the planet. Every element also has a network-shaped design on the backside, representing gravitation forces.
The inspiration came after watching videos about merging galaxies. I was amazed by images of two galaxies merging, while staying alive and beautiful. In a sophisticated interplay of gravitation, the galaxies dance with each other in a kind of space waltz.
