With 500 seed beads that sparkle like moonbeams in mist this crescent shaped shawlette is reminiscent of the mantle that fairy Queen Mab might draw around herself as she flies through the night bestowing sweet dreams upon slumbering mortals.

“In bed asleep while they do dream things true
O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you…
Her collars of the moonshine’s wat’ry beams…
Through lover’s brains and then they dream of love…”
-- Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet, Act I; Scene IV
