Mare Tranquilitatis

Mare Tranquilitatis or Sea of Tranquility it's an area on the Moon, a lunar sea. When I first came across this name I fell uner its spell. I waited for the right stone and the right design to use it - such a charming name deserves a very special piece of jewellery.
And this is it: this large Labradorite, flashing with heavenly azure-blue shades brings to mind a place of calm, quiet and magical atmosphere: a lunar ocean, sea on the Moon. I know in reality it's not blue, I know there is no water in it but it doesn't matter. It is blue in my dreams.

Simple, almost ascetic design draws the attention to the stone. Set in Sterling and Fine Silver hand formed, hand wrapped and crocheted. Oxydised to black patina and then hand polished to shine.
