Luna Lovegood's Radish Earrings (v3)

© Rosemary Waits

Supplies

Paperclay
Eyelet pins for jewelry making
Earrings hooks
Jump rings
Acrylic paint

Note: Author chose paperclay instead of sculpey because paperclay is made from wood pulp and is much lighter, making it better for wearing them in your ears.

Instructions

Make two round balls from the paperclay, about the same size as a real radish.

Pinch an end on each earring to form the pointy bottom parts of the radish. A corkscrew shape can look nice here.

Attach the earring hooks to the eyelet pins with a jumpring each. First, cut the pins so they fit in the depth of the radishes, and then twist the ends into a corkscrew shape with pliers.

Next, insert a pin into each radish on the opposite end from the pointy tips, twisting as you go.

Tape a length of string along the edge of a table so that the radishes can hang to dry. Dry the clay overnight.

Hanging earrings to dry.

Paint each earring with acrylic paint. Author mixed reddish orange, since they were described as "orange radishes" in the book. Once that layer dries a bit, paint white on both ends of the earrings.

Optional: The earrings that will appear in the movie also have leaves at the top. These appear to be beads strung with wire, do this by attaching them to the eyelet or jump ring.

You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
