Lunar Jade Earrings

On a recent visit to my parents house I rediscovered a lunar globe – it was a medium sized tin sphere depicting the surface of the moon. Unfortunately it had come apart in two halves, and (evidently) past attempts to repair it had failed. Yet it seemed ripe with potential.

Upon bringing it home and pondering it I felt more and more strongly that I ought to find ways to use small pieces of it, rather than find a purpose for the whole.

In this, the first instantiation of this idea, I paired the cutout moon pieces with jade beads. Behold, the resultant “Lunar Jade” earrings:
