A LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER
Welcome to Stellar Milieux. The collaborative environment creating the most compelling sensation of outer space while bringing together intriguing worlds of science and art with a note of philanthropy.
Outer space is visionary and deserves to be portrayed that way. It is to be explored with curiosity and open-mindedness. With the perfect merge of science and mitery. Space material got my intention to utilize its intrinsic beauty to express the awareness of the collective connection to everything that exists. What we wear speaks to what we hold for important. For me, it was always to reach for the unknown. The initiative was the "From Space to Space" idea, that with the proceeds, I could support projects of colleagues in the field of space exploration, the field that I love. I come from Ljubljana, Slovenia and have moved to Munich, Germany for my mathematics studies. It took me several years to combine my interests in space exploration into a tangible product. Stellar Milieux is here to bring outer space as close as possible to you, who share the same passion. Who are ready to seek beyond what we know. To explore. To show your curiosity. Over the years I have met many beautiful people who are co-creating this interstellar journey; from brilliant craftsmen to meteorite professionals, from augmented reality developers to forward-thinking supporters. Everything you see is a result of the collaboration of many brilliant minds. A colorful mixture of people with out of this world stories.

"To create the most compelling sensation of outer space, encourage daily curiosity and implement solutions to outer space research."
A passionate mathematician, Ana, started cultivating her love for science while studying abroad. After finishing her degree in mathematics, she couldn't escape the fascinating world of outer space which offers enormous space for creativity. Astonished by the number of aspiring young talents from various disciplines and concerned by the fact that their smaller yet significant projects lacked attention, she started thinking of ways to help them gain knowledge about our existence. After spending some time with her colleague astronomers, the beauty and value of space stones they were collecting became utterly apparent and thus turned out to be the source of her inspiration.
Meteoritic material from the Moon was the first rock that piqued the interest of Stellar Delight. With the help of the world's most recognized scientists and world`s renowned collectors from the International Society for Meteoritics and Planetary Science, the company gained access to laboratory tested, first-hand material. It is trackable in the World's database of Space Material (Meteoritical Bulletin) and therefore completely authentic. Each lunar meteorite comes with its official name and classification that guarantees the legitimacy of the stone. All the material can be found in the International database - Meteoritical Bulletin. We emphasize the scientific value of outer space material and therefore only use fragments that have already been examined for scientific research.
Stellar Milieux stands for authenticity and comfort. We make all the effort to ensure the best material. Our in-house team consists of meteorite experts, holding university degrees in meteoritic sciences. Our team members have as well classified space material for the International Space Material Database. Founder Ana is a member of the International Society for Meteoritics and Planetary Science.
Lunar material incoroporated into Stellar Milieux craft is verified in Natural History Museum, Vienna.
Stellar Milieux is also honored to have among friends a great scientist who is an active contributor to the meteorite community, an author and the main curator of the largest display of space material in the world at the Natural History Museum in Vienna, Dr. Ludovic Ferriere. Between his scientific work and taking care of the international meteorite treasure, Dr. Ferriere also travels the globe in search of new impact craters to be confirmed. Each new impact crater brings important additional information about the formation of our Solar System. Impact events played a significant role in our geological past by influencing the evolution of life on Earth.
STELLAR MILIEUX DIRECTLY FUNDS SPACE RESEARCH
Outer space is an increasingly important part of our present, let alone our future. Investing in projects of aspiring and above all motivated young talents is something that we value greatly. We make science interesting. Allowing young talents to think freely and develop their own ideas. They are the ones conducting scientific research to expand our knowledge of the Earth, Solar System and the Universe and with it gaining new knowledge, applicable over various disciplines. The interest in fundamental questions should never be justified. Yet it is only a matter of time for it to get a practical application.
Our mission is to create the most compelling sensation of outer space. In order to do so, we currently make use of the following two technologies, that are going to develop even further (and therewith the dimensions of Stellar Milieux pieces) in the next years:
Focused Ion Beam.
Using a technique developed by the Stellar Milieux masters, the meteoritic fragment of the Moon is placed inside a high-quality glass sphere. Putting quality before quantity allows us to create pieces that are handcrafted with precious materials so that each craft truly embodies the vision of an individual artist. It's an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observations. And with it capturing the greatness of cosmos along with accentuating the beauty of its matter. Every piece is made to order and tailored to your desire.
VARIOUS ARTISTS AND DISTINCTIVE DESIGNS
There's a philosophy that art provides a way to experience one's self in relation to the universe and we believe that it's always unique. Each pendant is a handmade art-piece from various artists. Collaborating with individual artists as well as luxury houses, Stellar Delight's necklace designs which contain carefully selected meteoritic material from the Moon are limited to 29 pieces which is the number of days from one new Moon to the next. Each new Moon brings a fresh collection, new artist and new space project. This way a unique and ever so slightly poetic point of view of an individual artist gets to be represented. Giving them a chance to explore fascinating materials they might never have worked with before and offer our customers an alluring variety of pieces to choose from.
