New Items (Pic Heavy)

A LOT of new Halloween jewelry, many of these are not listed yet, I have a lot of work ahead of me when it comes to listing. I've been so busy creating all these new items I haven't had the chance yet! Please, please, please read the entry after this! It's all about my sale. In a nut shell, 3 months until Christmas, shop early, shop handmade, use coupon code SEPT25 for 25% off, ends Monday. If only I could always be so concise!

These are some simple hoops, the hoops are an inch across. I love these hoops, they're so easy to wear.

This is a choker (or a short necklace) made of black beading cord and orange Swarovski Crystals. I love Swarovski (which I believe is very obvious!). This design is based on a "floating" illusion necklace, except that I use black cord, not transparent.

More hoops and more Swarovski. Swarovski crystals feature heavily in my Halloween items (in most items, actually). I also plan to use them heavily in Christmas designs.

This is a memory wire bracelet. You can't tell, I know. It looks like a dangle, both on and off, but it doesn't actually meet in the middle. The ends meet in a circle, but they are separate, like a coil. I recently used my small bit of memory wire and fell in love, so I bought more. I still have some for rings that I like to use, and I have memory wire for necklaces, but have yet to use it. I buy a bunch of craft things I find interesting to "try someday".

Super sparkles! Faceted Czech glass beads and Swarovski crystals. I don't think too many would argue with me when I say that outside of Swarovski, Czech glass is the best. Swarovski is glass, but I don't see them as being very comparable, like comparing a banana to a grapefruit. Swarovski does its thing with perfect faceting, clarity, sparkle and quality. That's not to say Czech glass doesn't do that. There is just a subtle difference between crystal and glass. Faceted glass beads tend to have softer faceting, where Swarovski crystal has sharp facets to best catch and reflect the light.

More Swarovski crystals!
These are more faceted glass beads and round orange beads.

One of my favorite pieces! Every month, there are generally a few items I make that I really love. I mean, I love all of them, but some are just extra special to me. Even as I'm tempted to keep it, it makes me so happy and excited when someone else buys the piece, because that means they feel the same as me! Anyway, this is a black velvet choker with a raven dangle. The reason I really love this piece is because The Raven, by Edgar Allen Poe, is the first poem I ever read (we won't count Dr. Seuss!) and it was that poem which got me interested in Edgar Allen Poe's work, which eventually led to my love for poetry from pre-20th century poets.

These are so cute. I'm very pleased with these earrings, because those cute little pumpkins are not "beads" and were not intended to be "beads" (I use the quotation marks because, technically, if it has a whole and you can string it, it can be a bead in my world). They are supposed to be decorative, I'm not sure how or what for, exactly, but they were near the floral section. I didn't know they had a hole in them when I bought them, so I was thinking of wire wrapping them or maybe gluing them to rings and bracelets. But when I examined them, I was happily surprised to see they did indeed have a hole!

Three simple stretch bracelets in classic Halloween colors. If you like these bracelets, you might want to read tomorrow's post. They might possibly be part of a give away...but you didn't hear it from me.
