The Bright Apple Lights collection is inspired by the hustle and bustle of New York City and the true reason I travel there often; to see Phish. Once my eyes caught hold of the large Ocean Jasper cabochons, I was instantly reminded of the bright lights that glow from the skyscrapers in the city at night. The Moss Agate is an ode to the Hudson River.
Each piece has its own unique way of nodding to Phish.
The Water star must have been singing its silver melody while I designed this pendant. Inspired by the lyrics “the tomb of the red Queen is painted in Vermillion” and the song title Mercury, I began to make this piece. As I melted the silver to form the spheres that encompass the center stone, “and the rivers run deep like a quick silver stream” popped into my head, how fitting.
I like to think the silver spheres represent the different people who follow Phish. We gather in the same city, every year, to listen to the messages from our favorite quartet.
