full flower moon


According to the Farmer's Almanac, May's full moon is known as the "full flower moon" because "In most areas, flowers are abundant everywhere during this time. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon."


This month for Bea's full moon art doll challenge I created a small full flower moon art doll pendant. She's made of glass, seed beads and repurposed jewelry pieces. She's embellished with Austrian crystals and fibers, and is suspended on a chain with charms and beads. One of the charms has a particularly appropriate quote.
This is the back.

It's gorgeous! How did you assemble it? LOVE IT!

Thanks! This is how I assembled it: First I glued glass pieces to jewelry components. The head is a glass marble glued to a charm with an opening in the shape of a tree. I also glued small beads inside the opening. The body part is a larger oblong glass piece glued to a metal oval. I wired the two pieces together and then embellished with fibers and wired Austrian crystals

Really pretty Deborah, you should model it for us. And the quote, we should all see flowers more often.

This is just so pretty. I love it! I am almost finished with my full moon piece for this month. I went much smaller than usual this time too, but still poly clay.

Oh dear, it's that time already?! Think I better get moving. It's a busy month here too, also June. I'm in trouble.
Deborah, I love this. I hope you get to wear it a lot so others can appreciate it too. It's really stunning!

I like it! It's also comforting to know that someone else out there is divided between fiber and jewels! :-)

Oh Deb this is so lovely... you have captured the flower moon perfectly and now she can grace you lovely neck. Splendid and spectacular with the glass elements and the flight of colors in the wings and feathers. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
