The night sky is absolutely ridiculous. After living in Seattle for the last two years, I’d forgotten how striking the night truly is without the interference of city lights. I keep catching myself these days standing outside and admiring the night as I walk from the driveway to the house, or wait for the littlest friend to return from furiously chasing a deer through the front yard.
I recently purchased some small wooden circles I wanted to make into stud earrings, and started brainstorming ideas for colors and geometric patterns I could use to make them a little more unique. Apparently, this infatuation with the night sky snuck into my brainstorm, and I was inspired to use one of my favorite, naturally-occurring geometric patterns, the phases of the moon.
And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to make seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so.
While I really love the colors and simple patterns of these earrings, one of my favorite features is that they remind me of God’s creativity and intentionality in creating each aspect of the world. It blows my mind to think that the shadows on the moon were designed to have meaning, to help us mark the passing of time.
