Blue is my color and this is a stunning piece - I particularly like the charm choice and it reminds me of a favorite opera.
Updated design features a more prominent key and Mimi's candle- both so instrumental to her first meeting with Rodolfo.
The Mimi and Moonlight bracelet is inspired by the love scene in Act 1 of La Boheme. Awaiting the full moon of a snow covered Christmas Eve, Mimi and Rodolfo hunt for her missing key in the dark. The clouds part, flooding the room with light and illuminating Mimi's beauty. She and Rodolfo fall instantly in love.
I used blue crystals and elegant cobalt glass beads to set the scene of the deep and beautiful winter night - you know - that special blue color that moonlit snow can have! Clear crystals bring to mind the sparkle of snowflakes and glass stars symbolize starlight. Glass pearls and iridescent touches give the suggestion of moonlight. The full moon itself is represented by a luminous glass “sea opal”. Glass flowers represent Mimi's profession embroidering flowers and her words about flowers in her aria, "Mi chiamano Mimi". Glass hearts evoke love. The key charm represents the lost key Rodolfo finds, while the angel wing heart symbolizes Mimi’s pure love and sad fate. A candle charm indicates the reason Mimi has stopped at Rodolfo's door- it has blown out in a draft...
All "Inspired By..."Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
I'm a returning customer. I first bought the Violetta Valery bracelet, and I couldn't pass up the chance to add the Mimi in Moonlight bracelet to my collection. The delicate beading, the beautiful colors, the perfectly fitting charms, and the overall intricate detail have Mimi written all over it. Not only is Cindy's eye for detail in her creations superb, her enthusiasm for opera is what makes these bracelets the masterpieces that they are. I will certainly be making more purchases in the future. Brava!
As always, the quality glass beads & workmanship is superior!
