The other day, my husband and I were walking through the park and a band was playing Blue Moon a very old doo-wap song, originally written in the mid 50's, which had a second rise to popularity in the early 60's. The song preceded my pre-teen and teen years, but somehow I knew a few of the words in the refrain.
That song came back to me as I was working on these earrings.
The lampwork glass hoops by Outwest made me think of blue moons. I paired the "moons" with lampwork glass head pins by Sue Beads and added a touch of sparkly with some faceted, metallic hematite beads.
I guess once in a blue moon, an oldie but goodie, can inspire a contemporary design. What are some other things that happen once in a blue moon?
