Three pairs of white lunar wings are just finished!
My earthbound imagination had quite a time attempting to imagine what moon wings might look like, so I decided to borrow from something "original" to help.
Last winter my children and I were taking a brisk walk in the woods and came upon
a lovely still life of fallen leaves embedded on a frosty log. The leaves had decayed to their
pure white skeletons and appeared to us as fine pieces of forest lace. Fragile, yet complete, I gathered a few and took them home to my studio to dry.
Finding them again, I cut three leaves into halves. Then backed each half with wire frame and purple iridescent film for strength.
After coating the front of the leaves with liquid polyclay, I sprinkled on glass beads and sparkles.
The points on the leaf have round iridescent glass balls and each wing is set with a large vintage diamond rhinestone.
Because the faereies are reflecting in a peacefully safe environment, their wings will be posed in resting position.
All three wings are similarly shaped, but have a different size to match the unique personality of their faerie.
