Luna Moth Challenge Reveal

Allegory Gallery - Luna Moth Challenge

For once I was ahead of the game here, I had the package opened and 2 things made before I even sorted through all of the beads in this lovely kit. Apparently soft, ethereal green is just my thing!

I patinaed and applied swarovski rhinestones to to this Vintaj butterfly pendant, then added more holes along the sides for this multistrand bracelet. Oddly enough, it reminds me of a scene from the Hunger Games (book, not movie) where a moth lands on Katniss's wrist while she is sitting inside the cave.

These little jade? butterfly beads screamed earrings at me! Here they are paired with some topaz crystal drops from Bird Tail Beads.

I dug deep into the depths of my stash for this pendant, It was one of the first things I bought when I started beading on a more regular basis  (aka 2004 ish)

I went a little rustic with this pendant - from Green Girl Studios - that I have been drooling over -forever. It was in my stash for less than a week before getting made up into this necklace. The clasp is made with a vintage milk glass button.

I have had a love/hate relationship with waxed linen thread. Here, it cooperated with me. Yay! Something simple and sweet to accompany the pendant by Andrew Thornton.

I still have some beads left from this kit...I keep wanting to get them back out but have other projects to move on to for now.
