Blue Moon Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

You won't be standing alone on the dance floor when you show off these cute Blue Moon earrings, The beautiful blue and silver pattern paired by sparkling Swarovski crystals is the perfect combination for stunning style.

Step one:
Mix a small amount of sapphire DeCoRé crafters clay and press into one Nunn Design silver-plated pewter mini circle pendant. Read our Handy Tip to learn how to use epoxy clay.

Step two:
Push one JBB antique silver-plated pewter half moon link into the clay, letting the bottom ring hang over the edge of the pendant and covering the top ring with clay. Press five Swarovski 3mm XILION chatons in Crystal into the clay, creating a half circle around the moon. Let the clay cure.

Step three:
Attach one Swarovski 10mm XILION mini pear pendant in Crystal AB onto one 0.75x4.60mm sterling silver open jump ring. Connect this jump ring to a chain of two 0.65x4.20mm sterling silver open jump rings. Attach the last jump ring to the open link on the moon. Watch our Handy Tip video to learn how to open and close a jump ring.

Step four:
Attach the top of the pendant to one French hook earwire with 3mm stardust bead.

Repeat these steps to create a second earring.
