Diana Ptaszynski (Suburban Girl Studio) is hosting a blog hop today – Halloween/Day of the Dead! I have to admit that I had loftier plans than what I ended up making. I bit off more than I could chew this past weekend and while we did get two of my new windows installed and all of the stuff in the yard cut down and a big plant moved etc. etc. I did not get to make what I wanted. But here’s what I did make.
This cute little necklace was made from a charm I picked up in a little antique store in Bedford, PA. It looks like one of those vintage Halloween cards – below the the back of the charm.
I also made these pumpkin earrings, complete with emerald green seed bead stems! These were made with a pretty yellow color enamel powder on clear glass. I kind of like how subtle they are!
And since I didn’t get to make anything else, I thought I’d show you some eye candy – my collection of halloweeny/day of the dead beads!
Below is an owl head from Marti Conrad and a sugar skull from Gaea.
Next, pumpkin beads and a bird from Kylie Parry.
Scary face from Rebecca Watkins (ArtyBecca) and a sugar skull charm from Beth Hemilla!
Great skully from Diana P. (our host) and scary face from Lisa Peters Art. I wanted to make something from Lisa’s bead, but just didn’t get to in time.
Finally another little charm I picked up and a funny face that I made (actually for Beads of Courage).
I hope you enjoyed my little creations and my eye candy. Please go check out what everyone else made – I’m sure there are going to be some fantastic creations!
