NGC 1672....

Another in my Galax-Sea bead series I've been doing using layer upon layer of reactive glasses, silver and heat fluctuation. The results are something other-worldly

NGC 1672 is a Spiral Galaxy that resides about 60 Million Light Years from earth (about 422 QUINTILLION miles...that's a one with 18 zeros...seriously!) This and many other galaxies are believed to have Black Holes at it's center. Black holes can be several million miles across and hold the same amount of material as 100 million or more suns. It is an area in space where gravity is so strong that even a chink of light cannot escape from it.....
Maybe this is where all of my other socks are.

So...What is a "Light Year" you ask? Well lets see if I can explain it in a way that makes sense to us all (including me).....
It is the distance light travels in one year. Light is used to measure distance since it is the fastest thing in the Universe (as far as we know) and its speed is constant. Because these distances are so gigantic, using "miles" is just not practical. For example, the nearest big galaxy is the Andromeda Galaxy. It's 14,813,819,500,000,000,000 (14 quintillion, eight hundred thirteen quadrillion, eight hundred nineteen trillion and five hundred billion) .....or 2.5 million light years. And the closest STAR to Earth (besides our sun) is something like 24,000,000,000,000 miles away. (24 trillion) That's the CLOSEST star. There are stars that are billions of times farther away than that
So now you see how using light years comes in handy.

A light year is 5,865,696,000,000 miles (just under 6 trillion). Light travels at 186,000 miles per second. Therefore, a light second is 186,000 miles. A light year is the distance that light can travel in a year.
So to help you grasp this concept, light can travel around the earth SEVEN TIMES in a single second!

*A stack of $100 dollar bills equaling 1 quintillion dollars would be 622 million miles high and would stretch beyond the orbit of Jupiter, 2/3 of the way to Saturn.

SIZE: approx. 34mm x 52mm

Sea Beads are an original Beatlebaby Glassworks creation. Every fan, every fin, every flipper, twist and swoosh is hand formed to create a unique yet wearable piece of art glass sculpture. The flip side and edges are a whole different array of patterns and swoops making them equally beautiful from all angles...there is no wrong way to wear these! My Original Sea Beads are all a little work of art unto themselves. So wear your Original Beatlebaby Glassworks creation with proudly!

All Sea Beads are 100% unique, one-of-a-kind. I can repeat colors or possibly similar patterns, they can never, ever be exactly be duplicated. Not by me...or anyone else for that matter :) Glass is notoriously hard to photograph since it virtually flattens a shiny, dimensional, sometimes transparent object. But I do my absolute best to show you an accurate view of my beads from all angles as well as getting the colors to look accurate. But please allow for variations caused by monitors.
