The magic of the Universe is infused in this handmade elastic cord bracelet.  Together with 3 of my blue CIndyFish Lampwork beads, the Hemetite and handmade pure Thai Hill Tribe Silver spacer beads add elements of calm, peace. love, and grounding, The color blue soothes and comforts.  Wear this bracelet on a summer evening in a little black dress or  barefoot in shorts and t-shirt curled up in a blanket looking up at the night sky. 

I have always been fascinated by the stars, maybe that is why I like the sparkle of silver and shiny glass beads.  This bracelet is in honor of the magic to be found in the night sky.  My dad knew how to navigate by the stars and he would point out and give names to so many shiny night orbs, constellations and galaxies. The Belt of Orion is the easiest one for me to find no matter where I seem to be in the world gazing up into the heavens. And this one seems fun too.   

"How to find the Summer Triangle. As night falls in June or July, look east for a sparkling blue-white star, whose name is Vega. Reigning at the apex of the celebrated Summer Triangle, Vega overwhelms as the brightest of the Summer Triangle’s three glorious stars, all bright enough to be seen from many light-polluted cities.

It’s difficult to convey the huge size of the Summer Triangle asterism – a star pattern that is not a constellation. At nightfall in summer, look for the brightest star in your eastern sky. That’s Vega, the brightest star in the constellation Lyra the Harp. Look to the lower left of Vega for another bright star – Deneb, the brightest in the constellation Cygnus the Swan and the third brightest in the Summer Triangle. An outstretched hand at an arm length approximates the distance from Vega to Deneb.

Look to the lower right of Vega to locate the Summer Triangle’s second brightest star. That’s Altair, the brightest star in the constellation Aquila the Eagle. A ruler held at an arm length fills the gap between these two stars."
