Inspired by the beauty of the feathery light texture of their pearly white wings so fragile & thin, I was compelled to recreate one solidly in Sterling, in a full 3d effect. Long after summer is past, a gentle reminder of the depth, mystery and richness of the season's nights. Moths, the nocturnal cousin of the butterfly, out number their more showy cousins 14 to 1, in North America. National Moth Week is a worldwide summer celebration, of the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths. Learn more here: http://www.nationalmothweek.org/
Philosophically speaking, night creatures do not tumble in the dark, symbolically, we humans use our dreams, our awareness, and our deeper, inner knowing to navigate through the darkest hours of our lives. As a creature of the night, we know the moth is highly influenced by the power of the moon as well as artificial light. This aspect ties in with animal symbolism of intuition, and psychic awareness. Even at the risk of loosing its life, the moth is ever-vigilant in following its path of light. This may also serve as a moral to us to keep our own vigilance, but not fall victim of blind faith.
This single charm bracelet measures 7 1/2" long, with a twig clasp, cast from nature and then reworked in Sterling. The Solid Sterling Cable Chain is a weighty one, the links are approximately 5mm in outer diameter, for your reference. All work is made in a mother/daughter Studio in the lower Hudson Valley Region of New York. T and Brie work with a family run Casting House who craft molds of our original designs, and utilize our metal scrap to cast pieces in limited quantities.
Each bracelet comes tucked in a pouch, in a gift box, with a handcrafted T and Brie Moth card.
