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!

  1. Oh Sue! I'm blown away by how different everyone's pieces are, and how gorgeous each and every one turns out. You chose the perfect beads and wire to compliment the Luna moth, not overpowering, but totally setting off the focal, and your beautiful beads.

  2. I love seeing all the different colored moths that everyone received. Your lampies are perfect with your moth. A lovely combo!

  3. What a gorgeous necklace Sue! Your beads are a perfect match and give the whole necklace a very nice rich feel… and of course I love that you wire-wrapped it all together.

  4. And I am sure you got compliments on it – its fab! fantastic match of your beads to the glaze, and I like that its simple – so the focal can shout out!

  5. Very pretty. I love the moth component and the lampwork beads! I think the simple wire-wrapping is a great choice to let those beautiful pieces really stand out in the design.
