distant sun, silver moon ... this day

Often we get caught up in what we are doing. We have to think about what we need to do next; pay the bills, go to the shops, get the kids ready for something. Then when we stop and relax, we reflect back on the things that have happened that day, or about moments in our past.
What is rarer and more beautiful is when our minds are neither in the future or the past - when we are in the present, in the "now". Times when we think of nothing and gaze out at what is there right now - living in the moment, emptying our minds of cares and passions to enjoy a sunset, or listen to the rustle of the leaves in a tree, to see the dappled light of the full moon shifting shadows across the ground, staring into our children's eyes and seeing into infinity.
I designed this collection around my feelings in those moments of a day when we are eternal.

Is that a cuff with the tree on it? Looks like it would go beautifully with the ring I already have from you with a tree (that I think is really a placenta ;-]).

Any chance it might come by again?

It is a cuff with a tree on it ... a perfect match for your placenta ring :) I may make something similar in the future, I'll let you know if I do. Michele x
