Dancing In Love and Warmth and Light

Love Dancing Earrings

Yesterday was glorious.

Today’s temperatures promise to be even better, although much of the morning’s blue skies are veiled in dove-gray cloud cover. Even so, it’s a gentle cover, soft and light, as though our small world here is held in the sky’s embrace. After the long winter’s chill, one far too warm for its own season, yet seemingly unchanged throughout the first half of spring, such days are a welcome gift indeed.

We spent much of yesterday out of doors, enjoying the chance to work in such beautiful weather. At such times, labor seems less laborious; the most ordinary, mundane tasks take on a joyous quality. Workaday steps transform themselves into dancing — dancing in love and warmth and light.

And that is the spirit of today’s featured work, one of beauty and joy, of love and dancing — of love dancing. From its description in the Earrings Gallery here on the site:

Love Dancing Earrings

The spirits go love dancing in the light of a Pueblo sky. Wings summons their form and shape in these new earrings, coppery-red hearts wrapped in turquoise robes. Head and torso are formed of a matched pair of hearts as full and red as the iconic love they represent: red agate cabochons in the color of the metallic micaceous earth indigenous to this land, yet translucent as the glow of a Pueblo sunrise. Each is set into a scalloped hand-made bezel, with an organic tab extended at the top to hold delicate silver wires, and a jump ring attached at the lower point. Via a second set of jump rings, the lower body hangs suspended from the hearts: brilliant sky-blue triangular turquoise cabochons aswirl with coppery matrix as red as the hearts, each set into its own scalloped bezel and set adance in the light. Earrings hang 2.25″ in overall length (excluding wires); red agate heart cabochons are 5/8″ long by 9/16″ across at the widest point; turquoise cabochons are 1″ long by 9/16″ across at the widest point (dimensions approximate).

Sterling silver; red agate; natural blue turquoise (probably Royston)
$825 + shipping, handling, and insurance

The soft coral glow of the hearts has already come and gone with the dawn, making way for the turquoise skies beneath it. Soon, the clouds will mostly part to reveal the blue expanse above us. By nightfall, the ambers and corals and crimsons will return, long bands of shimmering light in the sunset sky.

And beneath it all, in the joy and the warmth and the light, we shall work, and dance, and love.
