Fabulous Space gifts for Stargazers!

About Dark Skies Jewellery

Early in 2014 Dianne was approached by Northumberland  Tourism and asked if she would be interested in designing a range of products based on  a Dark Skies theme. A large area of the county had recently been awarded a Gold Star Dark Sky status by the International Dark Sky Association, and to encourage the preservation of our magical star filled night skies and to promote the area to star gazing tourists, the artist has designed a range of jewellery using stunning images of deep space.


Dianne uses some of the most iconic images from the NASA archives, miniaturises them and firmly glues them behind crystal clear glass cabochons which have a slight magnifying effect. These are then set into a silver plated base. Each piece of jewellery shows Nebulas, Star Clusters, Planets or Galaxies, details of which are described on a small photographic gift card or on the reverse of a greetings card. NASA web details are included to encourage people to take a look for themselves; the intention being to inspire and to give people a glimpse into the " Wonder's of the Universe"! 

The IDA is the recognised authority on light pollution and an IDA Dark Sky Park is an area of land that is recognised as having an exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and a nocturnal environment that is protected for its scientific, natural, educational, cultural heritage, and public enjoyment.
