Meet Moonbow, our newest Mama + Mini Necklace Set inspired by the magic shared between mothers and daughters that celebrates the moments of awe and wonder that begin before baby even arrives, and only continue to grow as she does.
Introducing the Moonbow Mama + Mini Necklace Set!
Late in the afternoon, when the day is almost done. When my brain is tired of thinking and my hands are tired of making, I see a pair of tie-dyed crocs at the workshop door. Delaney Bee bursts into the room with stories, laughter, wild hair, and so much sass. She drags her favorite blue stool right up next to me and gets to work on her latest creation without missing a beat. It’s like she’s been here all day long.
Lunar Rainbow Magic
Bounding over to the wall of materials, she gleefully grabs an armload of beads, any and every shape and color that calls to her. I cut her a strand (or two or three of rope) and together, we soak up the last bits of the sun and create. It’s everything, absolutely everything, that I hoped having a daughter would be.
Delaney is like me and she isn’t. She has opinions and she’s brave with them. She’s tender enough to bottle feed her baby doll but tough enough to stand up to her big brother. She’s been an adventurer since before she was born, riding along in my belly as we camped, hiked, explored. I remember the feeling of her moving around under my ribs when we hiked Cumberland Falls to see the famous moonbow, a lunar rainbow that you can only see during a full moon, when the conditions are just right. It felt, at the time, like I was beholding two miracles at the same time. And now, chattering with the beads and singing a song, she feels more miraculous than ever.
Our newest Mama + Mini Necklace Set, “Moonbow” is inspired by the magic shared between mothers and daughters, the moments of awe and wonder that begin before baby even arrives, and only continue to grow as she does. There’s a bit of me in the design, delicate greys, modern shapes, and there’s a bit of Delaney, flashes of lilac and coneflower. All of it is centered around a beautiful arc-shaped bead.
When the sun through the window begins to fade and it’s time to make dinner, Delaney offers me her latest creation, “Mom! Mama! It’s for you. Do you like it?” I tie a knot and wear it lovingly around my neck.
To all the mamas and daughters, you are miraculous. I’m thrilled to release a design that commemorates that otherworldly love you share just in time for Mother’s Day.
