Feathers and Fangs
I love this time of year. Sweater weather starts (in some parts of the world, at least), the leaves start turning brilliant colors, and we all start preparing for my favorite holiday - Halloween! It's a time of year just begging for over-the-top jewelry designs, including those incorporating skull designs - one of my favorite motifs.
So, to kick off Terrorific Tuesday this week, I created this simple stringing project. This necklace is sort of this year's version of "Bite Me". I fell in love with the ox-blood faceted glass beads I used in that project and picked up a ton more when I was in New York earlier this summer. This time, I added visual interest with my small skully token and marquis-shaped onyx beads. Mixed faceted black glass and one my all-time favorite sterling clasps by artist Robert Jennick completes the look.
Don't forget to visit on Tuesday for the full list of crafty Terrorific Tuesday links.
