Embracing Iridescence

 Looking Glass Spring 2015 Jewelry Collection | Iridescence, iridescent, capiz, abalone It’s easy to become mesmerized by the dreamlike quality of a dragonfly’s wings—there’s something about that shimmer that shifts in the sunlight that calls to us and makes us wonder.

Dragonflies never stay put for long, though.  Darting around through the garden, they can be admired only briefly before they’re gone.

Luckily, the new Looking Glass Collection incorporates the magical quality of iridescence through materials like opal stone abalone and capiz shell.

It’s easy to imagine that a wish, in its purest form, is a colorless wisp that shines bright as it travels through the air.  These wishes have been painted onto the shells of abalone sea snails.  They’ve been encased inside the semiprecious opal stone.  Nature has put them there for us to admire as long as we please.

Wear your wishes proudly for the world to see.

The authenticity of materials cannot be mimicked.  The trueness of nature shines through in smoky gray shell that catches the colors of white light like a prism.  The beauty of these pieces is that they are not a color, and yet every color.  Meant to be worn, movement brings them to life as they refract every shade in the spectrum of sight.

Simple, elegant, iridescent pieces look great against simple white t-shirts paired with jeans and sandals for a summer lawn concert.  Or wear a pair of iridescent earrings to the office for a stunning, yet professional statement.

It’s up to you how you choose to embrace iridescence.  Wear your wishes proudly for the world to see.
