By Moonlight…

Very recently, our eldest (Damien) gave me some beads, including moonstone!  Now moonstone is one of my birthstones, so it was very appropriate.  It was essential that I make something special, with other gems.  After some thought, I decided to make an illusion necklace, combining aventurine and moonstone, on monofilament thread.  It would be my first effort!  I’m quite pleased with the outcome 🙂   Strangely, the moonstone round reacted powerfully to the flash,  producing a fiery glow!

The wire cone I made myself, using my round nose pliers.

In my stash was a strand of Picasso jasper puffy coins.  While using these, I noticed that some had such beautiful markings on their faces that it would be a shame to, effectively, hide them by stringing them normally.  As a result, I turned four of them into a pair of earrings:
