Detour Ahead


I ended up getting distracted from the eye-in-the-keyhole necklace and made this pendant instead, with eight full lunar phases, instead of the four I used for the toggle ring. Typical, reallly. The number of UFO's (UnFinished Objects, for the uninitiated - I don't know if beaders really use this phrase or not?) I have lying around the house is kind of embarrassing. Still, I'm determined to get back to the keyhole necklace now. No, really.

Anyway, as far as the lunar ring pendant goes, I'll probably tweak the design just a touch next time, but I think, overall, it works for me.

Thanks for visiting!

That is so super cool! I like it with the full phases better. I can see many possibilities for this one! I had wanted to make something the last time we had an eclipse, because it looked like the moon was so close I could touch it. Fascinating inspiration! Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the day! Erin

Thanks, Erin! I know what you mean. When I was in law school, the astronomy dept. of the university would bring out their telescopes to the main quad whenever there was a lunar eclipse, so everyone could admire it - so much fun.

love it!!! when should I expect it in my mailbox ;-)

Makes me wish I hadn't sold my kiln last year. Truth is, was too big for the little pieces I made and I couldn't use it in my apt here. sigh.....

Oh, what a bummer. Sometimes I wonder if we moved back to New York what I'd do with the kiln. Is there a studio nearby where you could rent kiln time.

I got lost in it when I first looked at it. It's magical. I like the full phrase to.
