Today I'm participating in the Earrings Everyday monthly challenge. The inspiration this month is the harvest moon. I love moon watching. My husband and I usually head out to our ranch to watch the harvest moon come up as the sun sets into the ocean. We didn't make it out this year, but we have many special memories.
Here's what I cam up with for the harvest moon challenge. I had some shell discs that I thought would be perfect. I wanted to show the moon through the branches of a tree. I tried wire, but that wasn't looking quite right. Then, I discovered some copper branch components in the drawer. Those and a little chain to tie it together did the trick. The branch can swing across the moon as it would in the wind and the chain can go over or in back of the moon.
