Harvest Moon Fairy

by: Stephanie Dixon

Cynthia accused me of coming up with design challenges that are predominantly green. I don't think I have been, but this was my response. Unfortunately - I gave it to Stephanie as a challenge - so Cynthia is still working on a greenish one!

This design challenge was all about the colour - intense orange with a splash of ivory. Some of those vibrant orange beads were some very funky vintage beads with two holes. I think it is cool that Steph ran with those and used them to enhance a multi-strand design that uses the Trios softflex to work with the colours in the necklace. Another idea would be to choose softflex that is a completely contrasting colour.

The moon face beads are lovely and really do suggest things like mystical harvest moons.

The necklace is three strands - and is about 24 inches long. The centre piece consists of a copper leaf, with 3 raspberries hung at three lengths (the longest about 1.5 inches) on softflex in front, flanked by a red cheerio on either side with a moon face hanging from it by a headpin. The fairy hangs directly from the softflex by a jumpring.
