InspirationFX: Ring Around the Moon


Get your creative juices flowing

Ring Around the Moon

by: Pam Kearns

We all "ooh-ed" and "aahh-ed" when the new 12 mm Swarovski Crystal Pendants arrived, and I especially love the Crystal Paradise Shine colour - it speaks to me of a cold, crisp winter's night.

I quickly made up some earring and pendant sets for Christmas gifts (don't tell Wendy and
Chelsea). So quick - so simple - so elegant!

1. Begin by opening a 4x6mm oval jump ring and slip on a crystal and around link; close the jump ring. Make three of these components.

2. For the earrings, join the crystal/link component to the ear wire with a 5 mm jump ring, making sure the crystal faces out; close the jump ring.Make two pieces for the pair.

3. For the pendant, add one 5 mm jump ring to the oval jump ring of the third component; close the jump ring. Add two more 5 mm jump rings to that 5 mm jump ring to create a bail; close the jump ring. Slip the silver chain through the two jump rings.

All done!
