Earthshine is the lovely dim light we see on the surface of the moon when the moon is not full.
In the moon photo above you can see the bright crescent of the sun’s light reflected from the moon. The rest of the moon’s surface is illuminated by the sun’s light bouncing off of the Earth onto the moon.
I made this polymer clay pendant to honor that beautiful phenomena.
I added pearlescent clay to every color of clay and ran each color through my pasta machine ten times to align the mica particles so that they would reflect light. It worked. The piece has wonderful iridescence.
I tinted translucent clay for the Earthshine portion and that part has wonderful translucence as well.
I am going to wear it to church this morning.
