Creepy With a POP of Orange

 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.

  3. Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I find this piece particularly intriguing. Immediately thought, "Abby on NCIS would wear that everyday" :)

  4. Looks like you nailed the challenge. I have voted for your #8 entry and also commented on your other post. Oh, how I'd love to have another famous Sherri Stokey piece of jewelry and this one is "NotJustMacrame". Get it? Get it?
