The Moon and the Stars

“Star light, star bright first star I see tonight…" the nursery goes as you wish upon a star hoping your wish comes true. The stars, the moon, all things heavenly, and astrology are elements of the celestial body. They are often represented in beauty, art, décor and fun!  Whether you favor the celestial for mythical reasons, astronomical, beauty or fun,  The Scout Guide Denver brings you local finds of all celestial kinds…  

Handmade in Denver with love, CLP’s Bronze Crescent Moon Necklace from Kismet is simple and charming.  There is nothing wrong with a little stargazing! From Stephen Webster Stargazer Collection, 18kt white gold and blue pave sapphire chandelier earrings bring the stars to you! This 18kt yellow gold bead bracelet with three movable diamond stars from the Stackable Collection at Hyde Park Jewelers may make you a bit starry-eyed. These handsome Texas Star Cufflinks are classic refinement. Made of solid brass and Palladium plated, they are the perfect accessory for the star in your eyes. //Stargazer Collection available at Hyde Park Jewelers. //Cufflinks available from Diane Hanfling Reed, Men’s Personal Stylist

Miranda Lake’s painting, Homecoming Parade, like many of her works, is "fanciful and dream-like”.  The parade marching across a starry night on what resembles a map is a sheer celestial delight.  Ms. Lake’s work “transcends geographic specificity by tapping into familiar archetypes and imagery.”//Available at Visions West Gallery

Old maps are a treasure trove of celestial information. Celestial December November October (top) and The Northern Circumpolar for Each Month of the Year (bottom) were both published 1850 by mapmaker Elijah Burrit, a school teacher during the time period astrological awareness was on the rise. As technology grew, so did the insight to the stars.  These celestial maps were used as practical tools for students.

Astronomie, was published c.1770 by mapmaker Diderot, illustrates many aspects of “astronomical study, from the structure of planetary orbit, to divisions of the globe, a nice basic image of the moon, as well as a celestial globe.”//All maps are available at The Old Map Gallery 

We Are Owl’s Constellations Scarf, made of 100% cashmere, this print of “the Pegasus, Aquarius and Andromeda constellation is an illustration of the 17th century engravings by Johannes Hevelius.” This bright, fashionable scarf, is perfect wardrobe accessory all year round!//Available at Melrose & Madison  

See the stars in the making!  Ophelia’s, the sister to Linger and Root Down, is a bar, restaurant and live-music venue, all “housed in an 1894-era Victorian brownstone that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places”. At one time or another, the building was used as a “former brothel/peep show/adult video library”.  Come watch the next star being born!

A beautiful world map from one of the most intriguing cartographic artists, Luc Marie Bayle. With a successful career in the French Navy that included missions to China and Africa, he later was promoted to commander of the Navy for Polynesia in the 1950’s. During this time continued to practice his art of drawing and painting, as well as tapestry. And in time began to do illustrations for poster and books. He later pursued an interest in film, and became a bit of a historian. Later in life, he would be inducted into the Académie de Marine.
