Luna Moth


About this design:

This was my entry for the June Art Bead Scene challenge. I didn't have a ton of time in June with what seemed like constant travel, but when I saw the inspiration I HAD to play because of the Kerri Fuhr bead in my stash. I have stalked Kerri's work for at least 6 years and finally bought something when she created this wonderful luna moth focal.

You can read more about it and see the inspiration artwork over on my blog: http://sjdesignsjewelry.blogspot.com/2014/06/art-bead-scene-challenge-june-2014.html

Components:

Lampwork focal, accent beads, and spacer beads by Kerri Fuhr (Etsy); Chain, spacer beads, and findings from Vintaj Brass; Czech glass; crystal.

    Thanks so much everyone. I really had a hard time deciding if I was going to use all four accent beads that Kerri sent with the focal, but in the end just went with it. I still have a ton of black and green plain spacers left over so I’m sure I’ll have fun figuring out additional designs for these. I still remember when we found a giant luna moth when I was a kid… I think I’ve been a little fascinated by them ever since.
