Tribute to my mom

About this design:

Last night as I was stringing the green and gold beads, I thought of my mom and how she would have liked it. Green and gold were one of her favorite color combinations. In Western cultures the moon is feminine. I think she would have like my finished creation. I think of her often, but especially at this time of year...Mother's Day and her birthday at the beginning of June. 😊

Components:

Pave gold crescent moon with star pendant, satin gold pave starburst coin, gold beads, czech fire polish emerald crystals, crimp beads, crimp covers, toggle, Beadalon bead wire

    I like the star dangling from the moon. Reminds me of Venus and the moon, how they seem sometimes to be hanging out together in the night sky.
