Dawn


  I've been thinking about circadian rhythms and about the master clock in our brains that make us function the way we do. Some of us are more productive in the early hours of the day like myself and others are the people that do their best work in the late hours of the day or even through the night like my husbands side of the family. My body clock is ruled by the light and I am always up before the sun, I start skittering as soon as my feet it the floor. I'm usually out the door with my dogs and now that they're older I find myself waking them to go.

I love the indigenous myths about creation, so many of them include the raven and the sun. I wanted to create "Dawn" since I know it like a best friend.




In my piece, Raven harnesses  the night and is ready to take it to the next portion on the globe while the sun is rising.



I've been dreaming up this piece for a very long time, I've had it next to me on my work bench, making sketches thinking and thinking and wondering just how I would do it.



Tell me about you, what are your natural rhythms? My son could have gone either way since these brain traits are inherited, he is a night owl.

Thank you for visiting! xo Robird

  1. I admired your creation even before I read it's story. Like you, I am a morning person, usually rising with or before the sun, along with my Kitties. I am the most productive in the morning hours.
    I admire your skill, talent and creativity.

    1. Thank Sherry for you kind words. I'm always amazed by my husbands habits and the fact that he can create beautiful things at 1 and 2 a.m. I couldn't do that if my life depended on it, I'm sure you can relate.

  2. What a great interpretation of the night to dawn, surrounding this raven pendant. I can just "see" you and your sketchbook, thinking...drawing.
    This turned out beautiful, I love the night and morning sun!
    den is the early bird, out for a run while I'm still asleep. I'm not a night person either, hee...guess I'm more an 11 am person. Lol.
    Xo!

  3. I love the chain on this piece. You have done it again, Ro! So creative and beautiful.
    I'm a night person, I get all my inspiration and a second wind when I should be tucking myself in for the night. If I didn't have to be up early, I'd work into the wee hours.

    1. Thank you Cinda, it has a pretty yoke, it drapes beautifully, I hope to get model shots today. You are like my husband and son, both are lovely, quiet times during the day I get up early and fadeeee out early :)

  4. I am a night owl myself! But when I can force myself to rise early, I am always happy I did. The morning light is incredible. This necklace is truly stunning!! Glad to see you back on here again, I love what you bring to the world.
