Transform a beaded crescent pendant into a multi-hole connector. Use our hole punch pliers to simply add 8-holes along the scalloped edge and wire wrap crystal quartz points to create this cascading focal.

MATERIALS

   

Inspired by the stages of a lunar eclipse. Simply fasten layers of natural brass, antique copper and bronze antique elements together by overlapping and crimping oval jump rings to create unique focal pieces. Accent with gorgeous faceted druzy agates and a copper verdigris spacer for a touch of color.

 These mixed metal earrings are so much fun to make! I love combining brass with copper, even better paired with flashy labradorite stones. This unique bead drop rests perfectly alongside our beaded crescent and will catch everyone's eye.

MATERIALS

 


This sweet natural brass moon face charm speaks for itself. I love the simplicity of suspending a tiny crystal quartz point from the bottom and pairing it with sterling silver plated chain making the pendant the center of attention.
