Mira la luna

Mira la luna.

In Seattle every February, just when you think you can't take the grey/green/wet chill a second longer, a wonderful thing happens. The sun comes out. Always in February, it seems there are a few days that are pure treasures, when the sky is blue, the air is a bit milder, the buds that have been only potential become something more. If we are really lucky, this will happen during a full moon, and then the evening is just as spectacular as the day. The twilight slowly deepening and the moon rising, during the depths of our February winters, were the inspiration for the mira la luna jewelry I made from the vintage glass rings I love so much.

My husband gets the credit for naming these pieces. Mira la luna. So soft, so roundly romantic. Just makes you want to take a breath, relax, and do a bit of moon watching.
