AJE Component of the Month with Caroline Dewison of Blueberri Beads

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!

 Please visit everyone who participated this month!
