AJE Component of the Month Reveal
Once a month Art Jewelry Elements (AJE) hosts a component giveaway and jewelry reveal. March’s component was made by the talented Caroline Dewison of Blueberribeads. Members of the Art Jewelry Elements team, plus a lucky guest artist were given one of these beautiful luna moth pendants that Caroline made for us.
I chose the lilac moth in the top row. I had recently ordered several colors of matte “peanut” beads, (aka farfalle beads) and I was anxious to put them to use. I made a mix of lilac, dark purple and cream-colored peanut beads. Then I tossed in some metallic purple, lilac and sage green seed beads. I created 3 strands on each side using this mix of beads and I wove them in and out of larger beads.
I dangled flowers at the points where the beaded cords attached to the chain. Two flowers dangle on one side and one flower dangles on the other. The Luna Moth Necklace is now available in my Etsy shop.
I thought you might also enjoy seeing what an actual Luna Moth looks like.
