Large Luna Moth Jewelry Dish with Sweetgum Leaf and Gold Accent
Luna moths symbolize transformation, renewal, and change. The Luna moth is a beautiful giant silk moth that, although not uncommon, is rarely seen by humans. If you see them where you are, consider yourself lucky, because they are said to be a sign of good fortune headed your way. The Luna moth is named after the Latin word for moon, "luna" which is perfect given the magical and mystical nature of this moth. The luna moth reminds us to always seek the light, whether that light is truth or knowledge or awareness of self.
This ceramic dish features a beautiful handpainted Luna moth hovering over the imprint of a real Sweetgum (Liquidambar) tree leaf. This star-shaped Sweetgum leaf is one of the Luna moth's favorites. This dish is special place for jewelry, trinkets, a special ring, or an incense cone. The ceramic dish is accented with real 22kt gold.
This Luna moth ceramic dish is made from smooth porcelain-like stoneware clay, dried, bisque fired, glazed, and high-fired once more at approximately 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. The Luna moth is sculpted carefully by hand and then painted by hand with ceramic underglazes before being fired in the kiln to full vitrification. The glaze is a glossy warm white with the beauty of a high fired ceramic, showing off the intricate detail of the Sweetgum leaf and the gorgeous wings of the Luna. A real 22kt gold overglaze is applied and then fired a third time to bond the gold to the piece. It is a labor intensive process that is worth the extra step.
Measurements: Approximately 5 inches wide
These ceramics are individually made by hand from start to finish, and slight variations and organic shapes are what makes them unique pieces of art. Please be careful of the Luna's delicate sculpted wing tails - they are durable kiln-fired ceramic but can still be broken if something hard is knocked against them.

Perfect size for dresser-top for rings, etc. Love the size, feel, colors and story this piece evokes. Beautiful and delicate craftsmanship. Thank you!
The beautiful creations I purchased from this very talented artist are SO beautiful! I dearly treasure each one. Well worth purchasing these unique, beautiful, hand-crafted items. Even more exquisite in person than the photos. And I can't part with the ones I intended to gift! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
The pictures do not do the tray justice. So amazing. Detail of the leaf and quality of the additional details was a pleasant surprise. I felt so lucky to be able to get one. I can not wait to purchase more.
I am a repeat customer and just couldn’t get enough of Deana’s work. These beautifully made handmade ceramic dishes of hers always make me smile when I see them around the house.
Really love my new lavender jewelry dish. Looks good on my vanity and I use it to put my rings and earrings in for safe keeping.
My ladybug dish exceeds any of the videos I had watched! Superb quality and love. You can feel the care with the craftsmanship and careful glazing finish. The dish arrived quickly and was securely packed. I will definitely add to the new collection.
After missing out on this treasure a couple of times, I was match fit for the third try to purchase. It’s the most beautiful dish, so delicately crafted and hand painted with 22K gold accents. I have placed it on a shelf where it holds my precious rings while I’m cooking and the deep blue tones really pop when fingers of sunlight reach for it. I absolutely adore it 💙
Dandelions are near and dear to my heart. To have been able to purchase this was a dream and it came in time for me to use it to hold my rings while I was in surgery and couldn't wear any jewelry in. Thank you so much for sharing your visions and creations!
This tray was even more beautiful than it was when I saw it on Instagram and came so professionally wrapped I would 100% by again
I am a lover of lady bugs…. Would always miss out on new pieces from this lovely lady, but I was determined to get a Lady Bug piece no matter what. Now that I have it, it’s the best thing…. It sits be my Night stand
It was very well packed. Will surely be purchasing again.
I bought this ring dish as a treat to myself. I held off opening it until Mother’s Day and I was so excited opening it up. It is a stunning, beautiful dish and it was beautifully wrapped with a bonus heart trinket. I hope to purchase one with a ladybug or bumble bee. Thank you so much Deana!
Pleasantly surprised upon receiving my rainbow tree jewelry dish set. The set was carefully prepared for shipping, arrived on time, and in perfect condition. The craftsmanship put into this set is exquisite and simply beautiful. Will consider purchasing other items from Vuvu Ceramics again.
Hard to describe how beautiful these are! Gorgeous, whimsical, pure joy. Thank you, Vuvu Ceramics.
I received this gorgeous piece at a very difficult time, and it definitely brightened up my day. Every day since I've gotten it, I've grinned at the sweet, tiny little froggo friend I now have! More than worth the price. I will be recommending Vuvu to anyone and everyone I know ✨🐸✨
