My mom was an avid collector of jewelry.
I remember vividly the stolen moments as a little girl when I would sneak in to her closet, close the door, and peer in to her jewelry case…
Rings upon rings, shimmering necklaces, and chic cuffs would dazzle me with their brilliance! I had many favorites, but I especially loved her moonstone rings.
The pale white irridescence of moonstone speaks to me of Spring–and reminds me of blooming magnolias petals, alyssum and delicate cherry blossoms.
As a nod to those days of childhood, and the wonderment of a little girl staring at a chest of jeweled treasures, I created this bold yet delicate series of rings that feature moonstone, diamonds and oxidized silver.
I still find myself staring in wonderment.
