With science taking some of the fun out of the mystical and unknown, it can be somewhat cathartic to let go of reality and be transported to another world where magic is a very real and tangible thing. A jeweler from the Canadian province of Quebec has sought to do just that.
Manon Richard is the creative mind behind an incredible catalog of glow in the dark jewelry, handmade by her and her daughter, who also happens to be her assistant. She has made pendants, earrings, ear cuffs, rings, vases, and even Lord of the Rings pendants. She hopes to produce works that capture the magical spirit of every individual.
Using a phosphorescent paint and carefully honed skills, Manon brings metal, glass, and other material to life in a vibrant and spectacular way. It is a valiant attempt to reintroduce an element of magic into our technology-driven lives which should not go unappreciated. Her pieces are beautiful and may just have your heart believe in magic again, if only for a fleeting moment.
