Northern Lights Necklace

beadYears ago, while sleeping in a tent on the shore of Lake Superior, my husband and I found ourselves awake in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. We stepped outside the tent and saw an incredible display of Northern Lights. It was as if we were both pulled from sleep by the atmosphere’s energy.

I was reminded of that night’s amazing light show when I saw my friend wearing this necklace. It was made by Leanne Kinvig, who was inspired by the Northern Lights that are so often visible from her home in Canada’s Yukon Territory. She calls them Borealis Beads. Handcrafted from polymer clay, with no two beads alike, they are “as unique and ever changing as the Northern Lights,” she says. To learn more, visit Kinvig’s page on Facebook.
