Asteria the Greek Goddess of the night sky and stars.  She governs prophecies and oracles; according to the genuine and more general tradition, she was an inhabitant of Olympus, and beloved by Zeus. In order to escape from his embraces, she got metamorphosed into a quail (ortux), threw herself into the sea, and was here metamorphosed into the island Asteria (the island which had fallen from heaven like a star), or Ortygia, afterwards called Delos.

This collection is primarily composed of sterling silver pieces set with irridescent stones such as labradorite and moonstone.  Utilizing the natrual rigid shapes of the oyster shell, and the way the galaxies are formed with some of the same elements as metal, jewelry becomes the embodiment of the heavens above us.
