By the Light of the Moon


About this design:

I have been collecting superduo beads for the last few weeks!;)I really LOVE them but just was NOT quite sure what in the world I was gonna DO with them! So after getting some rizo seed beads in the same color and the ceramic focal from Jubilee, I knew that I wanted to use them together! But how? After some trial and error I found a way to kind of "weave" them together and I really liked the way they looked. The ceramic moon focal features a full moon on one side and a crescent moon on the other, so it is entirely reversible. It has an antique brass swivel clasp to make wearing it either way much easier! What do you think?

Components:

(rizo seed beads, superduo seed beads, african recycled glass, swivel lobster clasp, unicorne beads)All from Lima, ceramic dual sided moon focal from Jubilee on etsy.

    Beautiful design and color. I too have been playing with my superduos today. Trying a new snakeskin pattern…I may redo it..not working out too well.

    What can I say other than this is the coolest bracelet!! I bet that woven band feels great against the wrist! The Unicorne beads flatter the moon focal like glistening stars. Creativity overflowing here! :)
