seas of the moon

When early astronomers gazed upon the moon, they thought the patterns on its surface to be seas, lakes, and even oceans. When I look at the moon at night I am enchanted by the idea of waves crashing on unknown and distant shores, about the known and unknown. These astronomers, unable to realize that there wasn't even a drop of water on the moon, named these "seas" such imaginative names, that I have designed this collection around the Seas on the Moon.
 
 





The Sea of Clouds


The Sea of Serenity

 
The Sea of Tranquility

 
The Sea of Fertility

 
The Sea of the Edge


The Sea that has Become Known



Each necklace varies slightly in size but they are all about 70mm long x 65mm, they're not heavy but they are quite large pendants. They each have a handmade clasp and soldered jump rings along the chain so they can be worn at any length between 39.5cm and 52.5cm  (15 1/2 inches and 20 1/2 inches).




 
 
 



They'll be listed in my Etsy shop this evening.
