Luna Lovegood's radish earrings

I was watching the Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince dvd extras over the weekend, and got rather excited about the jewellery that Evanna Lynch had hand-made for her character Luna Lovegood: a beautiful bracelet and a pair of beaded radish earrings.

Luna wears the bracelet to Slughorn's party in the Half-blood Prince - it's a large metal spiral bracelet with a pretty beaded hare patronus bounding along inside the spiral. One of those blink-and-you'll-miss it details - it's only briefly shown on the dvd extras as well.

The radish earrings are from the Order of the Phoenix; apparently the costume designer had made a pair, but Evanna's were even better, so they ended up using those instead. I found a pattern for very similar earrings at www.the-leaky-cauldron.org if you fancy making a pair. You'll need seed beads, wire, and the bravery to wear them in public.


  1. bravery to wear them in public? what are you talking about of course I'll wear them in public! they rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
