Blue Moon

Only a few nights ago we saw a blue moon here in the Scotland, not a blue coloured moon, but the second full moon in the month of August,  August 31, 2012.


I thought I’d show you one of my recent pieces, a blue lace agate pendant with a necklace made of small round lapis lazuli, sodalite and iolite, combined with blue freshwater pearls.

The colours are so beautiful, dark shiny lapis lazuli, paler, grey iolite, the bright blue of the freshwater pearls. The pendant has such lovely banding across to the left with grey blues. Words are difficult to describe this, hopefully the photos can do it some justice.

I wish I could claim my inspiration from something more iconic or fashionable, but I live with two toddlers who are currently addicted to the recent Smurfs movie, where where a “blue moon” is used projected above Central Park as a publicity stunt.


I used to have a stylish fashionable life. Maybe when the girls are a little bigger I’ll get my style back. Until then I’ll just pretend I’m Ella Fitzgerald. x

Blue Moon – Rodgers & Hart 1934

You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You know just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold

Blue Moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
