Cosmic Stardust Multi-metal Earrings

by Angela Lees

Create some multi-metal earrings that are out of this world! Resembling the great cosmic universe, the sparkly stardust beads look like intergalactic planets, and the spacer beads their planetary rings. Measuring a nice 1 1/4" from the hypoallergenic niobium earwires, these stellar earrings are created out of brass, copper and gunmetal finishes.

2 4mm round gunmetal beads
10 brass 6.5mm saucer beads
4 brass 8mm saucer beads
2 copper plated 6mm round stardust beads
2 gunmetal 8mm round stardust beads
2 antique brass 2-inch medium headpins
