I just know I’m going to have a great day if I am up before the sun, outside in time to watch it rise and let the first light of day shine straight into my eyes. I can feel all my cells firing up for the day — it’s not my imagination either, that first light of day shining into my eyes stokes the fires of the mitochondria in every single one of my cells in my body. The first light of day shines in my eyes and tells my body to wake up and get going. It’s science! The last light of day tells our bodies to power down for the night and to prepare for sleep. Watching the sun set is just as important to our circadian rhythm as watching it rise. Isn’t that fascinating? Even if you don’t find it fascinating it’s the inspiration behind this design.
When I sat down to make these ancient looking necklaces I had the goal of creating something that looked like it had been chiseled into a cave wall and finger painted with ochre.
Rugged sterling silver with a wash of 23K gold, a dark patina and a selective hand finish add so much dimension to the design.
Length: 21 inches with my s-clasp closure.
