Man in the Blue Moon Beaded Earrings

Man in the Blue Moon Beaded Earrings
I love these little Buddha-like faces smiling on these metal beads. I was inspired the moment I saw then and they reminded me of a story I used to love as a kid about the man in the moon.

In this pair of handmade beaded earrings, I used these beads to create a touch of whimsy with man in the moon smiles at the end of a row of delicate blue glass beads and silver plated accents, all then set to dangle at the end of stainless steel hooks.

Although I make a variety of handmade earrings, these are, by far, my absolute favorite and I even ended up making a pair for myself!

These earrings measure at 1.45-inch (3.7 cm) and were made with care to be light-weight on pierced ears and easy to wear.
