crescent moon

crescent earrings and pendant 2012

the crescent moon is the most identifiable moon visually... in its full state, it can be confused with other circular symbols...




myths about the crescent date back to ancient times and come from all over the globe... 


mine is not the true slim slice often seen as i needed more body for the jewelry forms i envisioned... but i hope it evokes that mystery...

  4. What a beautiful form - I love that cross-bar with the dangle. I can feel the moon-mystery stories with these - they are beautiful.

  5. MJ-beautiful work - full of ancient mystery. Love the way you have resolved the design - such balance with the curves. Did you solder the cross bars in place? Go well. B
