Some more SM-inspired thingies 1.

 I've made a new pair of earrings - these are based on the ones Sailor Moon in her Eternal form wears in the original series. (The earrings I made earlier - described here - were inspired by the new anime...)

They are made with PRAW (prismatic right angle weave) - I really like this technique, one can make almost anything with it! :)

Moonlight, starshine... Again? Yes, why not?!

...but now from another aspect :) Apparently I'm in a "moony" phase right now XD
I've already wrote a quite long post about my favourite pendant ("by light of moon and ray of star"). Of course it's not a perfect piece, but I really like it, so I decided to make a matching ring too.
White flowers, moonlight, shimmering stars...
Btw, did you realise that this story was born 100 years ago? ;)

The first try...
I wasn't satisfied with the first version of the ring, because it didn't go well enough with the pendant - although the materials were the same, the shape was too different...

...and the final version
So I then tried to replicate the pendant in a smaller size - keeping the form, but using smaller beads. Fortunately I had got some 3 mm crystal moonlight bicones (they had been bought actually for another project, but nevermind), so I could make a miniaturised version of the pendant, which was small enough for wearing as a ring - even if a very big ring :)
