Each year I try to find interesting Halloween jewelry but all I find is lots of cheap trinkets. So last April I decided to take up beading. Now I make my own amazing Halloween jewelry.
If you can thread a needle and tie a knot, you can bead! One of my favorites is this ‘String of Skulls Bracelet. Its simply a matter of stringing an interesting set of beads for the main line, then stringing smaller sections and sewing through one little bead at set intervals. Its quick, simple and great looking.
A slightly more interactive stringing job produces this unusual ‘Pumpkin Shroud Wine Jewelry’.
Beware though as beading can become addictive. Suddenly you’ll find the simple stringing isn’t enough and you’ll want to try your hand at more intriguing stitches. Written and video instructions are available all over the Internet and can produce items fairly simple such as my beaded ‘Vampire Bite Choker’ or the somewhat more difficult ‘Bat Wing Bottle Jewelry’.
I love the fact that I can design my own beadwork items or purchase other people’s inexpensive patterns online. Along that line take a look at my creations and patterns at www.DebrisDeCollette.com and have a bloody good Halloween!
