These are the beads and findings I pulled out to use in a fun piece this week. I had a few spare minutes to play along with the Color Combo Challenge of the week. Here's the palette we had to work with:
Yes, you may see a fish, but I saw a great Halloween-ish piece. I decided I just had to use the piece with the lady's portrait set in the pretty pendant frame, but I still wanted a creep factor to the piece. So I mixed in black Lucite flowers and bright orange Czech glass flowers and a little heart shaped cameo charm with some skulls and skeletons, a bat charm and a black cat. I added some filler beads and do-dads and a few rattling chains and ta da:
There's even a little clock charm - Oh, look! It's almost midnight. Bwahahahaha...
I do think it's a pretty piece, though. Fun and funky, slightly weird and a little twisted.
