Inspired by the peace and tranquility of a calm, dark night, these earrings feature an ornate Celtic moon with a face, quietly gazing at the star in front of it.
The moon has a rich history of folklore across various cultures that give meaning to the images we see on its surface.
In the west, we see a man on the moon. In China, they see the Moon Rabbit, who is pounding the elixir of immortality for the goddess Chang'e. Still other cultures see the silhouette of a woman, a frog, a moose, a buffalo or a dragon.
Though the shapes and their stories may differ from one culture to another, what unites them all is that they have long been a way for people to understand the moon, a way to add a layer of meaning to the glowing orb that passes through our sky every night.
