If I were to make movie canon Luna Earrings like the ones on this picture:

How many of you would be interested in buying them and how much would a reasonable price be? (Keep in mind, 3-dimensional beading takes a lot of time)

It takes too much time for me to do but here's a tutorial instead! :)

You'll need seed beads two earing hooks and about a yard and a half of beading thread.

I would love to buy some, and I would be willing to pay $10 a pair, with maybe $2 for shipping. Does that sound fair? I'd want to see them before I bought them, anyway.

Nevermind, making them takes too much time to make it a profit but I did make a tutorial which I now have posted above :)

Thanks for posting the tutorial! I could never have figured out how to make it on my own, so this is the next best thing to buying a pair! I really appreciate it.

I finally started making my radish earrings, but I have a question for you. What brand beading thread do you use? All I ever see is beading wire, and I tried to use that but it's too thick. You definitely don't use wire, right?

I would definitely be interested in buying some..... I've been looking for some for a while now.

I agree with iowagirl11 on the price and wanting to see them before I bought them.

Thanks for the tutorial! I've been looking for either someone to make the earrings for me, or a tutorial on how to make them beaded and I think this one might just do the trick!

Is it possible to put a bigger bead on the inside of the radish to help it hold it's shape or is it too small for that?

It is very possible, in fact, I would highly recommend it.

THANK YOU so much for the tutorial.

My friend sarahcoldheart who is Singapore's Luna will greatly benefit from this tutorial when she make her new Raddish Earrings.

Yes!! YES! Thanks for the tutorial! I'm going to have to practice and make them!
7th-Apr-2007 02:46 pm (UTC) - THANK YOU
You are awesome hewtab! I can't thank you enough for the tutorial...can't wait to give it a try. Never done anything like this before I have a feeling mine will resemble bazaar carrots.

Thank you thank you thank you! I'd been thinking about how I was going to make my earring, but this tutorial will save me a lot of time.

Just one nitpick - I'm fairly sure the leaves of the radishes are actually made of two colour beads: both dark and light green, in stripes.

But anyway. Thanks for the tutorial, will try it out soon!

wow this tutorial is amazing! I was wondering, would it be alright if I put a link to this page on www.craftster.org? The credit would all go to you. Alot of people are curious about how to make these earrings so it would be awesome if I could share this with them. Please message me back. thank you!

are her earrings orange, like in the book, or just an orangey red? regardless, i'll probably make them orange.
