It’s hard to believe March is already over when it seems like it just began – it’s time for the Component of the Month challenge again! This month, Caroline of Blueberri Beads provided our inspiration. Here’s what I received – a very cool luna moth pendant! You can’t see in this photo, but the bronze overlay is very shiny.
I was having a hard time deciding what I had to match the pendant when I remembered these beads from my inventory for Bead Fest – they’d go great with Caroline’s moth!
Here they are together, just waiting to be made into something wonderful!
This necklace consisted of a lot of wire wrapping – which I seem to be into lately. I used bronze seed beads with both my lampwork and the african metal beads I had on hand. I used bronze wire, that I slightly heat patinaed.
I had a sweet little bronze clasp I had ordered a while ago, to go with seed beading projects, but it went perfectly with this project!
Here’s the finished necklace! I like it – I wore it out already on Saturday night, with a green sweater, to a mixology class I gave Jason as a gift for Valentine’s Day!
