Ok, this isn't really jewelry, but it's in the Halloween theme. I normally hate spiders but how cute is this guy
This necklace is very dainty and simple, but I think it's my favorite...the VAMPIRE BITE NECKLACE. It's a thin silver chain with two deep red Czech glass beads on the side. I will be wearing one just like this myself this Halloween.
These next items were something new to me. It was my first time working with and baking clay. I don't know why but I've always been afraid to bake clay. I guess I've been afraid of overcooking it, or not cooking it enough. But I like how these came out.
The first set I made is in the theme of dripping blood made from dark red clay.
Both pictures are the same bracelet, I wanted to show how it's flexible and will conform to your wrist
This was surprisingly tricky. I drew by hand several stencils for the drippy blood but some of them were way to big for a necklace, and some of them were way too small. Once I got the size of it right, my next challenge was to figure out how to make it curve. I didn't have anything round that I could safely put in the oven. So when the clay came out, I immediately put it over a round bottle (did you know that clay right out of the oven is really hot?)
and a different version of the necklace:
Once I get a model (hopefully tonight) these will be going in the shop
