Bejeweled Halloween Ideas
|With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to spook up a few appropriately-themed jewelry components, tutorials, and just-plain-fun eye candy!|
Normally the sight of any spider can give me the heebie jeebies. But not this sparkletastic brooch by ParisXOX on Etsy!
I had to throw in this beaded shoe by Teri Greeves (Beadwork Magazine's October/November "Bead Artist") as inspiration for the rest of your costume! Wow!
And as long as we're on the topic of bats, check out these lovelies from one of my all-time favorite ceramic artists, Marsha Neal. We found out about these when Marsha sent us a few for inclusion in our product roundup in the Fall issue of Jewelry Stringing.
Alright, one more bat. Beading Daily editor, Jennifer VanBenschoten, did a little bead embroidery on this ceramic bat cabochon by Lisa Peters, and combined it with a few more of Lisa's components. See it on her 2011 Halloween post here.
You won't want to sink your teeth into one of these polymer clay candy corns (made you look twice didn't I?). But they sure would make a fun charm bracelet or set of earrings! Find the how-to over on No Big Dill's blog.
Ok, so this is not exactly jewelry related, but I couldn't resist. Instructions for making these pumpkin decorations (with stockings!) can be found on the Home Seasons blog. I think I'd bling it up with a few flatback crystals here and there. Cool, huh?
What kind of Halloween jewelry and accessories do you wear? Do you have plans to bead any this year? Share your comments below!
