Scientists say northern lights (aurora borealis) are produced by charged electrons and protons striking gas particles in the earth’s upper atmosphere. Electrons and protons are released through sunspot activity and some are pulled to the most northern and southern latitudes by the earth’s magnetic forces. My jewelry is inspired by the colors of the northern lights. The colors vary from luminescent green, white and yellow to magenta, orange, purple, blue and pink.
Some native Alaskan legends tell of the northern lights being their ancestors dancing and/or giving advice from the spirit world. I like that definition better than the scientific one.  It is much more awe inspiring on crisp, cold, dark, clear nights when the lights are streaking across the sky like sheets and curtains, sometimes hours at a time. It makes a good evening to bundle up in a sleeping bag on the deck with a cup of hot cocoa.
