I Am Star Stuff

February 2nd, 2010 · No Comments

My wife has become a huge Etsy fan over the last few months, and has discovered many unique,  smart artists & jewelers who combine intelligence with skill. One such example is I Am Star Stuff:

Of course the starstuff idea comes from the famous Carl Sagan statements: that we are composed of the stuff stars made, which it literally true. After the Big Bang, only hydrogen existed. Stars burned this fuel and started creating slightly heavier atoms. Then other stars made even heavier atoms. They spit these out as they burned or exploded them away as they died. It is this generative magic that allowed carbon and oxygen and nitrogen and potassium – and all the other atoms we need for life – to exist. Look around – everything you see used to be in a star.
