Spooky Halloween Jewelry

Here is my spookiest piece: made using a vintage procelain bisque Charlotte doll torso, along with some of my favorite crystal roundelle beads and my favorite sparkly chain from Objects and Elements.....I should call this necklace "all of my favorite things"!

Notice the amazing glass pumpkin bead! I strung it on the necklace sideways to show the top and bottom of the bead. The name of the orange-colored glass is actually "pumpkin" - and the tan effects make it look so authentic! I even included little hammered wire vine spirals!

Notice the creepy porcelain bisque Charlotte doll arms!

These earrings are made from antique bakelite beads I got from one of my grandmother's old necklaces she used to wear. Love the orangey lustre!

Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!! Every year I am so inspired! This is a collage I am using as the focal piece in my Halloween display. The witch is from one of my favorite rubber stamps of a glamorous lady...I think the witch's hat is very befitting!

R.I.P. Maximus

Rest In Peace, wonderful Maximus!!!!! Max is my dog of 12 years, who I got in Maui a long time ago. Max came from Maui to Oregon, and then travelled to NY when we moved here 5 years ago. Max was the most wonderful, smart, amazing dog that ever lived. He was very special to my whole family. Maximus left this world last Sunday, 10-10-10. Farewell to you, my beloved friend and companion! We will miss you so much!!!

New Jewelry

Heres some of my latest jewelry. Pictured above is a keychain I made using a smoky colored vintage chandelier crystal, and some nice little crystal beads. Above that you see a beautiful custom made glass heart in dark red with blue ribbons of color throughout. I completed the necklace with garnet chip beads highlighted with tiny blue glass seed beads. Atop the heart shaped pendant are a collection of black beaded necklaces for the Halloween season, and a group of earrings. My favorite are the black square Swarovski Crystal earrings!

Topaz Amulet Pendant

I used a broken Topaz ring for the focal piece on this pendant, and wrapped the outer area with tiny Topaz beads. This is one of my favorites.
