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.
