Conjoined Alice Planchette Moth Ring. Moonstone.


“What a curious feeling!' said Alice; `I must be shutting up like a telescope.'

And so it was indeed: she was now only ten inches high, and her face brightened up at the thought that she was now the right size for going through the little door into that lovely garden. First, however, she waited for a few minutes to see if she was going to shrink any further: she felt a little nervous about this; `for it might end, you know,' said Alice to herself, `in my going out altogether, like a candle. I wonder what I should be like then?' And she tried to fancy what the flame of a candle is like after the candle is blown out, for she could not remember ever having seen such a thing.”


These Alice planchette moths are far smaller than the other moths in the collection (read more about them here). Conjoined, these tiny moths guard a tiny faceted gemstone: a jewel of protection for the things & feelings { both external & internal } that make us feel small, that shrink us down in size. I try to make peace with my contradictions {my conjoined sides}, the desire to be unseen/unknown reclusive and quiet, but at the same time, desirous of getting my work and writing out of myself and into the world. Small feelings > Big feelings & all the mess and hard-earned beauty in between.

 This solid sterling silver ring is hand oxidized to achieve our shade of stormy gray and then highlighted to reveal the bright luminous silver beneath.

Moonstone is closely tied to the moon, with some cultures believing the stone is solidified moon rays, while others think of them as embodiments of the moon's tears. Acting as a kind of Psychic armor, it is thought to protect its wearer from not only dark nights, but dark times; it helps sooth grief, loss, and other emotional turbulence. It is also a great tool for meditation and clairvoyance, & has been used in jewelry since ancient times for both its unique beauty and magic.

As a romantic stone: moonstone is thought to keep the passion alive between lovers when one gives it to another, especially during a full moon.

Please note that moonstone is a natural stone, clarity and color will vary from stone to stone. Moonstone often has a milky appearance as well as natural inclusions within the stone. The flash will contain shades of blue, violet or teal, and occasionally a dark gold.
