Moon Madness

Probably we all know the word "Lunacy" derives from "Luna," or the Moon. And though there have been a few male moon gods, most cultures have seen the moon as quintessentially feminine. From the Greek "Aega" to the Etruscan "Zirna," the moon goddess makes an appearance in nearly every mythological pantheon. 

So when I first published a picture of our "Phases of the Moon" bracelet on the Twelfth House Facebook page, I shouldn't have been surprised at the reaction from our female fans.  I wouldn't say they went crazy over it, but it did net a strong response. : )  This piece (pictured) was created for a good friend and customer who saw the bracelet and commissioned a necklace. With great patience she waited (I guess you could say through many moons--teehee) until we could finish it for her.  And so here it is.  By the way, as of today the moon is at 48%. For all you moon lovers or just the merely curious, a moon phase calculator is available at http://www.calculatorcat.com/moon_phases/phasenow.php.
