Project by Janice Parsons
Sample by Emily Miller

Believed to be one of the oldest moons in our Solar System, the heavily-cratered Callisto faithfully circles Jupiter. Darker than Jupiter’s other moons, Callisto is named after a beautiful follower of Greek Goddess Artemis, who was pursued by Zeus (also known by his Roman name, Jupiter).

Callisto’s story is one of Greek mythology’s more interesting tragic tales. After her pregnancy was discovered, Callisto was cast out from Artemis’ group, turned into a she-bear and later nearly shot by her own son while he was hunting. Saved at the last minute, she and her son were placed among the stars, and you can still see them there today as the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Also lending her name to the dark and mysterious ancient moon of Jupiter, Callisto’s tragic beauty lives on today.

Emily recreated Janice’s Designing A Cuff with thoughtful design, layout, and beautiful additions of 5mm flat leather and dangling beads. The moon-Callisto is so pock-marked that it reminds us of dark, painterly picasso beads and leather that we see so prominently in this design.
