Luna Moth Necklace


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.

Handmade pendants by blueberribeads.

Ceramic Luna Moth Pendants

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.

  1. Dear Linda, your necklace is so mysterious looking and beautiful! I love all the colors and the design you made is really perfect! xox jean

  2. Linda, I love those luna moth pendants! I have a weakness for moths anyhow, like them way better than butterflies. I find their muted colors soothing and their night time habits resonate to my slightly vampire nature. You did a beautiful job with this pendant. made me want one of my own.

  3. I love the translucent grape-hued glass with the opaque lilac glaze. The purple cording is beautiful with it, and the peanut beads add nice texture to the smooth focal. Such a luxurious color palette! I love the purples with the brass.

  4. Stunning! The mix of peanut beads add a dainty air to the necklace and beautifully combine with the boldness of Caroline’s moth. And your color palette echos the dim colors of a garden lit by a full moon—so lovely!
