...The Harvest Moon, to be exact.

Sadly, I didn't actually get to see the Harvest Moon this year. However, I have seen them in years past, and can certainly call to mind just how beautiful they are. (And Google is certainly helpful, too! *grin*)
So, with that inspiration in mind, I made two pairs of earrings to go with this theme. One pair is inspired primarily by the luminous color of the Harvest Moon, and the other inspired more by its shape.
The addition of the round charms--whose designs make me think of stylized depictions of the moon--completes the look.
As previously mentioned, this pair was inspired by the shape of the Harvest Moon.
...More specifically, it was inspired by how its size changes as it ascends. After all, the Harvest Moon appears enormous when it first rises in the sky, and then gets smaller (but no less beautiful) as it nears its zenith.
I showed that change using the three different layers. Each layer gets consecutively smaller as they move inward and upward, starting with the large brass outer ring and culminating in the orange pearl at the center--just like the Harvest Moon appears as it moves up the sky.
So, there you go! Those are the earrings that I made for this month's We're All Ears challenge. Thank you for stopping by--and be sure to hop over to the Earrings Everyday blog to see what everyone else made. :)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
