the Theia Convex Mirror

In All, Mirrors by Mark Evans

 

The Thea convex mirror is one of the resuilts of my buying spree at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show.  I bought hundreds of quartz crystal point in many sizes to use in my mirrors.  Theia has a double row of crystals with a third row in the reflection of the convex mirror.  Detailing of gold and clear Venetian glass finish the design.

The Theia convex mirror will be placed in one of my showrooms at a later date.  Nothing leaves here till the pandemic has lost its strength.

The Theia convex mirror is around 18 inches in diameter. 

Jewelry for walls!

THEIA was the Titan goddess of sight (thea) and the shining ether of the bright, blue sky (aithre). She was also, by extension, the goddess who endowed gold and silver with their brilliance and intrinsic value. Theia bore the Titan Hyperion three shining children–Helios the Sun, Eos the Dawn, and Selene the Moon. Her name was derived from the Greek words thea “sight” and theiazô “prophesy”. She was also named Aithre (Aethra) “Blue-Sky” and Euryphaessa “Wide-Shining”.
