I discovered the brilliant maker and lovely soul Agnes Becker, creator of We Are Stardust through a women’s business group I am part of, and I fell in love with her unique beautiful handcrafted watercolour prints. Agnes is both a scientist and an artist. She describes We Are Stardust as “a celebration of how we are all connected to each other and the universe around us. Many years ago when the universe was born stars exploded to make the elements of the earth. These elements are what make everything in the world – me, you, the sea, creatures big and small, the clouds and the stars.” She designs and illustrates beautiful cars and prints for people with wild natures, sophisticated minds, and loyal hearts. Each card and print captures a fact, story or curiosity, and when you give one of her prints or send one of her cards, you are giving someone a moment of wonder for the natural world.
There are only 14 of these copper limited edition gilded prints featuring the traditional “I love you to the moon and back” saying. Each print is hand finished with copper leaf and is therefore each is slightly different to the next. They make perfect Valentine’s gifts or gifts for someone special, and are also perfect for children’s bedrooms. Each print is labelled as “x/14”, signed by Agnes and comes with a matching greetings card.
