Bear in a Meteor Shower
Before I settled on this design, I tried many combinations of labradorite, charoite, moonstone, and various agates. But none of them worked for me. And all of them were too similar to the two pieces I just finished - the wolf and the puma - with the animal head in the middle and a cabochon both above and below.
This design is going to be a meteor shower. The glass star will be a shooting star with white rays curving downward against the purple sky. Below the bear will be several vertical lines of beading with beaded strands dangling randomly from them. At the tips of some, or maybe all, of the beaded strands will be tiny vintage glass star-shaped buttons that I was able to buy on Etsy. It should make for both a beautiful and a unique piece. At least I hope so!
