Cylindrical glass beads, two bands of pavé diamonds set in white gold
"My father grew up in Queens, NY and spent time as a child at Luna Park, the original name for the amusement park at Coney Island. My necklace and bracelet, called Luna Park, are inspired by the idea of Coney Island, seen at a distance, at night. The moon is represented by bands of pavé diamonds set in white gold." - Claire Kahn
Amongst a peaceful, dark night, Claire Kahn observes and marvels at a spectrum of flickering and glowing color in the distance, as seen from the twinkling lights of Luna Park. A kaleidoscope of color in warm shades of red, orange and yellow gently subside into the cooler shades of blue as they dance with the deep, black backdrop in Claire's progression. In her discerning use of pattern, the eye enjoys the subtle energy of the work, as it reminisces on the joyous, yet mysterious mood of the moment. Against this visual confection, the maker imbues her work with two rings in white gold, embellished with a span of pavé diamonds. As if the moon is overlooking this fanciful scene, delighting in the gaiety of the carnival below. Quite an intoxicating work to entertain and tempt the soul.
