Moonstruck DIY Inspiration

Chase the Moon, Ride the Stars 

My love for the moon & stars makes designing with our Celestial Collection a breeze! This second jewelry grouping inspired by this theme features some of my favorite components. Did you see the first installment over on my Celestial DIY Inspiration blog post

If you haven't already be sure to pick up one of our limited edition Silver Moonlight Bead Mixes which has these gorgeous large-hole faceted Moonstone rondelles & glowy black diamond shimmer 2x Swarovski crystals as seen in some of these projects. 

You'll find two new links to video tutorials below featuring techniques used to create the Woman in the Moon necklace. 

Each project idea below lists the materials used to make the piece, with a direct link to the products. Clear your mind, get inspired and create!

Learn a quick and easy way to add color to a detailed pendant with two colors of Vintaj Patina by Ranger Ink. Simply apply a base layer of Lapis patina and quickly wipe away excess patina to accentuate the impressions in your piece. Add a small amount of Onyx patina to the lady and the moon to give them an "antiqued" finish.
