Halloween Time

The stores are starting to get ready! Back to school stuff is slowly leaving the shelves and soon they will be filled with Halloween goodies!

My mother and I went to Tucson to do some early Halloween shopping. I spent my Halloween allowance for the year in one day!

Despite that, I decided to get more into the spirit and make some more jewelry inspired by my favorite holiday!

I etched the copper for these earrings months and months ago and forgot about it until looking for something in my scrap copper drawer.

These were etched using salt water and a battery! Pretty cool huh? Etched onto the copper is a little spider web design. I thought it appropriate for Halloween. I want to learn how to preserve spider webs under glass and found several tutorials online. I just need the time and energy to do it.

I just adore these bat earrings. Like the bat necklace I made, they are taken from the weather vane design at the Haunted Mansion in DisneyWorld. I might be tempted to wear these on my trip if someone does not purchase them before then.

How I love eyeballs! This is a taxidermy eye. I bezel set it onto this ring along with some onyx stones I had laying around. I love this ring! It so creepy! I imagine it on the finger of a female vampire.

All these pieces can be found on my etsy shop by clicking here.

My camera battery is still MIA...darn cats...and my other digital cameras do not have a video mode with sound. So until the new battery arrives, or my cats decide to stop being so mischievous, I won't be able to do my sawing lesson.:( grrrrrrrrrr. Anyone want 6 cats? Free to a good home!

So does anyone really read this blog???

  1. I went to Michaels last week-end and couldn't believe how wonderful their Halloween 'goodies' are.
    Since the budget didn't allow...I just got my supplies...wishing I could afford some spooky goodness...but...maybe next year.
