She asked for "a bat and an opal", the rest was up to me. I chose the "Brown Bat" because they are common in her area and decide to use the opal for the moon. The sapphires represent lighting bugs, a common meal for these little critters. She liked another triangle shape pendant I had done, (See "Trinity" earlier in my Blog) so I used that same style.
I so enjoyed seeing this little brown bat take flight; I think he (she?) is the happiest bat I have ever seen.
