to the moon and back dangles

Sometimes you design something and people connect to it in an unexpected way. My “to the moon and back” collection started simply. I set some time aside in the studio to play with some new-to-me rusty hammers to see what texture they transferred to metal. One looked hazy, the other dappled. As I arranged them on my anvil and bench pin and posted some pictures on Instagram my followers immediately saw them as moons. As someone who is naturally a night owl, walking her dog late at night, spying on the phases of the moon I connected with the replies I was seeing.

First I made a necklace because I loved the contrast of textures and finishes together. Then came simple post earrings to match. This past week I decided that we needed to add some movement to these textured pieces of silver. It is sweet, subtle and simple, just like the original design.

The dark and hazy moon reminds me of stormy nights, the satin hazy moon reminds me of those lovely mornings when the moon is still out peeking through the fog. The dark, dappled moon is how I feel during the new moon when he look up towards the sky looking for guidance and light. Shiny, dappled moons remind me of those magical nights when the moon lights up the sky, sidewalks, illuminating the leaves on the trees.

These dangles hang 3/4” long and the moons are 5mm round. All pieces are sterling silver, the black earrings are oxidized sterling silver.
