So I went to Joann's and looked at buttons and beads. Found some interesting moons and planets, and some shells that could easily make up a moth.
No guarantee the shells would configure that neatly of course. Especially if they're strung on the warp.
Moth and planet button.
Another planet button with a woven moth. Or of course woven moth and planet. I could get more color in that way.
Thinking I may go ahead as I planned, then make a variation next using buttons, etc.
