The Great American Eclipse
Back on August 21st, 2017 the moon cast a shadow across the USA. We, ourselves, closed for two days to go down and see it. Sunday we drove down to Carbondale, IL where a friend of a friend let us stay in their home for the night. From there we went to Makanda, a town about five minutes south of Carbondale which was closer to the exact center of the Path of Totality. It was an unforgettable indescribable experience.
To commemorate this rare event we've made this Solar Eclipse Pendant showing the eclipse just before or just after Totality. The pendant is made of sterling silver, measures 2cm in diameter, blackened with black rhodium, with 34 small round cubic zirconia. The center circle represents the shadow side of the moon facing the Earth is made of sterling silver and faceted to mimic a pave set surface of black stones. A halo around the disk represent the corona or atmosphere of the sun with three larger stones in the halo to represent Baily's Beads.
