Lucem Ferre means light bearer in Latin (Venus). These patterns were inspired by the Beroe Forskalii a bioluminescent Jellyfish and deep sea creatures that only shine in the depth of darkness. These creatures are usually semi transparent, so the patterns are reversible. The outside has a sharp pop of color, and the inside has more of a wavy flow that dances with its radiant color. The hat is worked bottom up and is designed to utilize both sides of the color work (stranding).
