New designs - a full moon and a starry necklace

I'm working on a series of artworks at the moment, based on this piece:

Moon with bats

Each will have a full moon motif:

Moons in progress

Both the above sketchbook piece and square canvas are to have bats on, but the other piece is finished:

One of my favourite sights in the sky is when the moon is full, and the sky is cloudy. When the clouds part, and the moonlight catches on them, it looks magical to me.

This piece depicts a bright full moon in a cloudy, dark blue night sky. It was painted in acrylics, silvery poster paint and liquid watercolour. The colours of the sky continue over the sides of the canvas on which this is painted, to give one continuous block of colour. This means that it does not need to be framed. This small canvas measures 12cm (7") high by 18cm (5") wide:

I've also recently listed a new necklace in my Etsy shop. To create this long chain, I re-assembled a chain from another necklace. I then added the twisted steel wire and pink beads. The pink star beads were repurposed from an old necklace, and the round pink bead was from an old bracelet. The pink star pendant was from a keyring.

The chain itself measures 82cm (about 32.5") long, and the main star pendant measures 3cm (just over 1") high.
