The Mimi and Moonlight bracelet is inspired by the love scene in Act 1 of La Boheme. This piece makes a perfect gift for opera lovers.
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.
