Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

Galactic Jewelry Pieces Inspired By The Cosmic Beauty Of The Universe

Moon Stars Jewelry is an Etsy shop catering to the star-studded whims of people. The designer incorporates metals, glitters and glass into each piece to create a multilayered pendant or stone which becomes the heart of the collection. With an extensive career in honing her craftsmanship and eye for details in the design industry, this artist captures the transcendental skyscape in her jewelry design. 

She uses glass to mold a fluid space into which she dumps glitters and tiny crystals of dazzling colors to produce a realistic galactic effect. In her studio page on Etsy, she explains the inspiration behind her work, “Like the Tibetan Buddhist monks who, during the casting process of their sacred bells, threw prayers of intention written on rice paper into the molten metal (that special moment of alchemical possibility). I also do this in my own work, realizing the importance of intention, and elements that go beyond the decorative aspect of jewelry.”

The designer creates celestial jewellery pieces that celebrate the beauty of the universe. Her products can be found in her Etsy shop.

Beautiful Laser Cut Wooden Pendants Hold a Piece of the Michigan Forest Inside

Chicago-based indie shop BuildWithWood creates handmade, one-of-kind jewelry pendants which pay homage to the ethereal landscapes of northern Michigan’s Hiawatha National Forest. Encapsulated with a wide range of natural resources, such as wood, oak, plants, resin, dried plants, hardwood, laser cut wood, natural materials, seeds, horsetails, horsetail, moss, lichen, nature’s common and often overlooked specimens are its main subject. Common weeds are carefully highlighted and encased by a clear resin inside laser cut oak or pine frames.

To maintain beauty and originality, the pieces contain small imperfections, such as tiny bubbles, which add an atmospheric and unique quality to each piece. To complete each necklace, each pendant is meticulously sanded, polished and stained, then finished with a stainless steel ball and hung on a simple metal chain. Strictly inspired by nature, the artist aims to create a functional, yet beautiful design. You can find more pieces in their Etsy shop.
