Sometimes I keep a bead for months before it 'tells' me what it wants to become. This is what happened with this moonscape bead. I made it several months ago, but wasn't happy with it until I decided to acid etch it, which has given it a lovely velvety texture. I left the moon shiny, so it really glows! After that, it was just a case of finding the right 'ingredients' to make it into a fabulous piece of jewellery. I've kept it simple, with only a tiny precious emerald bead and a moonstone with a silver star. It just makes me want to go and gaze at the full moon!
You can find this necklace, as well as some bracelets and earrings, on my website.
I'm in the process of messing around with the website, so don't be too surprised if it changes from one hour to the next...
