I've been in a mad dash to finish as many Harry Potter crafts as I can before the book release party, but when I found out recently that a friend of mine who is working at a local Barnes & Noble on the big night is without any sort of costume (for shame!) I decided to take a break from crafting for myself and make her some radish earrings. They're based on the ones used for the movie (I heard the actress made them herself... crafty props!)

A pair of radishes!




I used seed beads and 32 gauge wire, and I strung the beads the way you'd do a bead buddy


And here's what they'll look like in the movie...

These were fun to make, I'm definitely going to end up making some for myself, too.

ETA mini-tute:

Here's a picture of the pieces...


I cut a length of wire a little over a yard long, you could probably do it with only 2 feet of wire, but I'm paranoid  Roll Eyes I started from the bottom of the radish, and when I got to the top, I twisted the wire a couple of times and started the first leaf. When that was done, I threaded the ends of the wire back into the row I'd just beaded and cut the extra. Then I cut a new piece of wire, maybe 8", and did the other leaf. When I was done with the second leaf, I twisted the wire twice at the top and threaded the ends through the top of the radish to connect it. Then I cut the extra wire, played around with the leaves until I liked how the whole thing looked, and stuck the top wires through an ear wire. I should probably seal the ear wire with some mod podge or nail polish so the radish doesn't fall off.

(Oh, and if the beading method isn't clear, just type "bead buddies" into google...)

These are so pretty! I don't know a thing about Harry Potter, but I think these are so CUTE! ...maybe it's just the asian side coming out in me that appreciates it when random objects become the subject of crafts (amigurumi, anyone?)...  Grin

Beautiful work!

I tried and tried and tried to bead myself some earrings, but failed horribly every time. You did a wonderful job! They look great, and make me really want to attempt another time!

Wow, they're great! I've never seen a beaded pair before, only polymer clay ones, and yours look really fantastic!
