The Moon Is Still Silver

I was up late one night, on Pinterest, and I found the astonishing words of Victoria Erickson. Erickson is my maiden name. I think that's why I read the first few poems. Then I kept going. Finally I came to one of the most lovely things I have ever read, a poem entitled "The Moon Is Still Silver." Here's a link:

 It inspired me to make two separate collections of jewelry. Here's the first one:

Silver Moon Earrings

Blue Moon Necklace

Silver Crescent Moon Necklace

Silver Moon Necklace

The second series is  still in progress. I got a little sidetracked and made some sewn paper and fabric butterfly collage necklaces this week, The text came from vintage piano music.

That's what I've been up to this week! Hopefully next week I will have finished the second Silver Moon Series. Until next time, leaving you with this lovely quote by Victoria Erickson:
