Halloween Pieces, Finally!

So just like the title says, these are my new Halloween pieces. The first three are part of my "Drops of Blood" line. I saw these beads and immediately thought of blood droplets, so that's what I made them into. I have noticed though that on my first pic you can see my fingerprint a bit on the glass. I'll have to touch it up before I post I guess.
I love these earrings. When I think Halloween, I think red and black. Now I know that the colors traditionally are orange and black, but I like red much better, and I think it makes for better contrast. *shrugs* One thing I noticed about the book that I hung the earrings on (It's a lovely aged copy of Interview With The Vampire, my fav) is that it's opened up to the part where Claudia goes a bit crazy about being made a vampire. You can see the quotes, "Which one of you did it? Which one of you made me what I am?" A great part in the movie. Just thought it was kind of cool that the book was opened to that page.

These, real simple design, but they are on sterling hooks.



I particularly like the black beads on the bracelet. You can only slightly tell from the pic but the black beads are shiny on the flat parts and on the rounded edges they are matte. Very cool detail I thought. Anyways, Sunday I should be doing my model pics so these will be going up starting that day or shortly after. Just thought I would update you guys since everyone and their mom has already added Halloween items.

I love red and black together - it would be perfect for a vampire costume. The earrings are gorgeous!

Your Halloween pieces are GORGEOUS! Really pretty.. I love the black & red combo!

Thanks for visiting my blog earlier! About your qn on the decent mailing list, I am not sure how many people would you consider decent. However, I have been selling for 3 years so I have a fair bit. However, I think it is always good to start early. It's another way to keep in touch with your customers. Well, it's only been my first newsletter and the results are promising so far. *cross my fingers* Will keep you posted :) But do check out mailchimp, it's free and easy to use.

God Bless

They are lovely! I like the way you've mounted them as little 'chandeliers,'

Thanks guys! I'm excited because I can keep them in my shop after Halloween comes and goes. I'll just need to tweak my listings a bit.
