Moonlit Night

About this design:

There was a supermoon last Saturday, and I forgot all about it until I stepped outside for a moment. It was cloudy and rainy, so all one could see was the glow thru the clouds. I used the patina to imitate the effect of the moonglow thru those clouds.


Shell pearls, crystals, crystal rondelles, Kyanite, pyrite, brass blank embossed and patina'd, brass hook clasp and jumprings, brass wire, natural brass chain.

    Ed, the chain and wire came that way. The chain is Vintaj Natural brass and the wire is plain craft wire in Antique Bronze.

    Oh I forgot to tell you Susie. Your Blue Bohemian Necklace that had the beaded beads in it, inspired me to make my own. Just have to find something to put them with :)

    Oh my! Susie, the colors and the pendant are superb. Everyone has said so and I agree! I really appreciate the subtle asymmetrical: There is a cluster that is similar but other pieces that are just a tad-off size and off-balance. This is SO subtle and SO perfect. I really think it is one of your best!!! I know you are trying to “find” your own style… this IS it! :)
