Fall Equinox Inspired Jewelry

The fall equinox marks the beginning of an astronomical season. The nights are now getting longer and the summer heat is winding down. It’s harvest time in Sonoma County and all the vineyards are picking the last grapes to be pressed, fermented and bottled.

The word equinox is Latin for “equal night” and for one day the sun is perfectly aligned on the equator. After this astrological balance we move deeper into fall and winter months where night time out balances the day time.

In Greek mythology autumn was the time that that Demeter’s daughter was kidnapped and forced to marry Hades god of the underworld. To mourn her daughter’s disappearance Demeter, goddess of harvest, refused to let anything grow. Persephone, her daughter, is finally allowed free the next spring equinox and the growing season begins again.

Ancient mythology and astronomical themes are a huge source of inspiration for me. I’m fascinated by ancient cultures creative story telling that still has relevant themes for today. Weaving this in with celestial inspired silhouettes my collection reminds us of the beautiful cosmic forces at work all around us.
