Mother of Pearl 'Floating Moon' Earrings

About: I run a little company that rebuilds old homes. When we aren't up to our elbows in demolition dust, I'm obsessed with recycling, crafting and cooking.

Intro: Mother of Pearl 'Floating Moon' Earrings


Smooth polished round mother of pearl 'moons' appear to float inside their wire baskets. Each disk dangles gently from a sterling silver ear hook.

Tools used:
Ear Wires
hexagon finding
Sterling silver wire
Mother of pearl disks
round tip pliers
flat tip pliers
Superglue

I made these for a wedding party. I had materials left over so I made a few extra pairs...

    What beautiful pieces! I'm just beginning to work with wire and stones and am curious as to where you get your findings?

    Very nice wire work.

    The only thing I don't like is the super glue. If there was a way to mount it with out using that I think it might be cooler (Its a personal preference sometimes you cant do a thing about that.)

    Did you do any soldering on this?

    Thank you!
    I tried wiring them in, and it looked horrible. Gluing was the only thing that didn't look funny...I used a brand of glue that works well on metals. I myself have kept a pair, have worn them on and off for 3 years...never had a 'moon' fall. So I keep making them this way, until someone has a problem or I can figure out another solution!

    I did not have to solder anything,luckily for me. I know how, but I am a bit sloppy at it...Jax of all trades, master of only a handful...
