Stardust on My Sleeve

Russian Filigree Hinged Cuff Bracelet
22K Gold, Fine & Sterling Silver, Koroit Opals


2-3/4” long x 2” wide x 1/2″ high

This bracelet is the third piece I’ve created that was inspired by the song, “Midnight Sun.”

The music was composed by Lionel Hampton and Sonny Burke in 1947; the lyrics were written by Johnny Mercer in 1954.

Your lips were like a red and ruby chalice, warmer than the summer night

The clouds were like an alabaster palace rising to a snowy height

Each star it’s own aurora borealis, suddenly you held me tight,

I could see the Midnight Sun

I can’t explain the silver rain that found me, or was that a moonlight veil?

The music of the universe around me, or was that a nightingale?

And then your arms miraculously found me, suddenly the sky turned pale,

I could see the Midnight Sun

Was there such a night? It’s a thrill I still don’t quite believe,

But after you were gone, there was still some stardust on my sleeve

The flame of it may dwindle to an ember, and the stars forget to shine,

And we may see the meadow in December, icy white and crystalline

But oh my darling always I’ll remember when your lips were close to mine,

And we saw the Midnight Sun
