I got an email with a request for a custom piece for an author. In her book, a character has a pendant in silver with a rainbow moonstone that's transformed by fairy magic. She had a rough sketch for me to use as inspiration so I just grabbed some wire and set about to see what I could make.
I wound up making two versions for her; first one with a more dense web and the other a more open web. Both use a 10mm natural rainbow moonstone at the heart.
She loved them both and ultimately went with the more open weave version. She found me because of my rainbow moonstone tree of life pendant.

I made these using the same wire wrapping techniques I use in my trees. I didn't have a pattern or a plan; I just sorta grabbed some wire and went where it took me. In honor of the source of inspiration, I'm calling them "Faerie Dreamcatchers" since they have a bit of Native American dreamcatcher style to them, but also a little bit of a fairy star/spiral as well.
This is an entirely new design for me and I like it! I think I'll try some more.
Which do you like better? The more densely woven one or the more open one? I'm torn so I wonder what the consensus would be!
