Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

"Clair de Lune"

Clair de Lune is French for Moonlight.

This necklace was inspired by a challenge from Erin at "Treasures Found: Inspiration is Everywhere".  The challenge is to create a piece of jewelry "Inspired by..The Solar System".

As soon as I read the challenge I knew I wanted to use this pendant.  It is repurposed from an old necklace.  I love the quirky bent key and dangling moon.  To complete the theme, I used 8mm Moonstone beads crocheted on silver wire.  The Moonstone beads are translucent and seem to glow.

  Thanks to the challenge I was able to use two things from my "stash" that I really like and wouldn't have thought to put together otherwise.
