    I could see earrings. have the crescent hang horizontally by chains at each corner. then use the holes to attach different lengths of chain with stars, crescents and crystals. Like a star shower from the moon. :) I would use silver chain to up the sparkle but still have some of the dangles be of the same color metal as these crescents. You could also hang these pieces up and down and have the dangles still attached at the holes. you would need to make the bottom dangle be the heaviest to keep the angle.

    Hmmmm…..I’ll have to think a bit on this…..
    In the meantime, can you give us an idea of the size? Maybe take a pic with a penny or something to campare them to?
    They’re pretty cool and I’m betting there are some awesome possibilities for these!

    I see earrings too. I might hang them from chain from each corner…sort of like a smile meeting a ceramic bead,small donut or gear in the center and then dangle small beads and steam punk items from each hole. Maybe a little patina on the rough side.

    They could make a nice necklace too. I love turquoise with brass and copper tones.

    Thank you for the ideas, I am still working on it. Here is a photo with a penny next to the crescent. They’re 2 inch in length and 3/4 inch at centre.

    My first thought was earrings as well,but earrings are my “thing”…so it always pops into my head. then I was was thinking they may make nice bracelet links,with small stones or crystals attached to the holes?
    In my head, I thought of big nuggets..then metals spacers..another nugget.then these,with the small stones??
    I’d draw,and take a pic,by my drawing is sad.

    Wait…on 2nd thought at 2″,they may not both work well against the wrist,but you could use one as a focal. Perhaps it could sit comftably,on the top of the wrist,with the little dangles facing the fingers?

    i am thinking a necklace with beads hanging off the bottom at different lengths. Make sure you share what you make. \
    Don’t you love Lima Beads for giving us this opportunity to share???

    I like Nancy’s idea of a bracelet with dangles!
    The crescent could be gently curved to fit the shape of your wrist & attach chain or leather on both sides.
    The second focal could then be used in a matching necklace?
    The possibilities are endless…….hope you show us what you come up with!
