After night comes day, after rain comes sun. The rhythm and cycle of nature is celebrated in this idyllic handcrafted pendant.
"Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the Earth are never alone or weary of life." Rachel Carson.
Images of the full moon represent the cyclic nature of time. Here, the garden setting of the moon, flowers, and hummingbird remind us of the natural cycle of planting, growing, and harvesting; the dry season leading to the rainy season; day leading to night and back again. There is something reassuring about these cycles, if only we're able to stand back far enough to observe them.
This pendant features a mother of pearl moon, with pink mother of pearl flowers and a hand carved ancient walrus hummingbird. The delicate silver setting includes a unique vining wrap through which to run the chain for the necklace.
The fossilized walrus tusk ivory is from an island in the Bering Sea called St. Lawrence Island. The native Yupik have exclusive rights to gather and sell this finite material, which is an important part of their local economy and is valued world-wide for its use in fine jewelry.
