new moon pieces for december

The full moon in December is called the Cold Moon or the Long Nights Moon. It is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. To evoke the cold and dark month that we are entering into I've made these moon phases from mirrored glass, a clear stained glass with black wisps (reminding me of the cold winds blowing) and a teal/blue stained glass (a beautiful but chilly color). There are 4 moon phases available in various sizes and colors:

 




I have also added a smaller moon phase ornament to my shop for the holidays. A smaller version of my moon phase garlands, it is perfect for hanging on a tree or on a window or wall. Each ornament has three phases: full, half and crescent handmade in black, purple or white stained glass. 



As an extension of the holiday season I will also be making posts on some of my go-to baking this season, a primer on succulent propagating, as well as an introduction to the New Moon Gathering that I and a few close friends have been celebrating the past few months. Happy Holidays!

September Harvest Moon



The full moon nearest the autumnal equinox is called the Harvest Moon, which is our September full moon this year. In other years it is known as the Corn Moon or Barley Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of harvesting corn and threshing the ripened barley.

September Harvest Moon No.1 is made with amber and yellow stained glass moon phases and a yellow stained glass full moon. Each moon phase is a complete circle, with the yellow representing the bright part of the moon and the amber the moon in shadow. There is a subtle change in size from a center full moon of 2.25" to final quarter moons of 1.75"

September Harvest Moon No.2 is made with amber and yellow stained glass moon phases and a yellow stained glass full moon. Each moon phase is a complete circle, with the yellow representing the bright part of the moon and the amber the moon in shadow. There is a subtle change in size from a center full moon of 2.25" to final quarter moons of 1.75"

collaboration : Free People

 Recently Free People contacted me about have one of my moon phases as an exclusive edition in their new Spirituality Shop. Of course I said yes! I knew that the wonderful people at Free People would find the perfect way to integrate the moon phase into their collections. And when they chose a moon phase with a white glass full moon and shiny opaque black glass phases I was completely convinced. 

On a related side note - I don't check that many blogs, but Free People's Bldg 25 blog is one of them. I can always find great tips on eating healty, scenes of their wonderland office, uses of various herbs and oils, natural beauty tips and more. Definitely take a look when you have some time, I guarantee you'll find at least one article of interest.
