Ocean Moon

When I asked my daughter what she wanted to do for her birthday, part of her answer involved sparklers on the beach at night. It just so happened it was a full moon that night, rising over the ocean.

I love this photo of the moon rising over the ocean. The photo has transformed the waves to appear like a misty cauldron. It has an ethereal and other worldly quality, and is a reminder to me of the magical special event of her birth.
I felt inspired being on the beach at night; there is such a different quality about the ocean. The moon rising through the clouds lighting the sea glittering silver over an endless expanse of black inspired me to make a ring of this enchanted night.

I’ve also been working on some jewellery that I’m close to finishing but our landlord has thrown a spanner in the works and decided to auction the little cottage we’re living in :(.  To avoid the next four weeks of "open homes" we quickly found another place to live, and we’re moving on Thursday!  So it will be a few weeks before I have photos of my next collection.
Off to list the Ocean Moon ring on Etsy now.
