Some Jewellery

Here's another couple of projects that have kept me busy these last few days.

First up my skully bracelet.
The main bracelet is waxed cord. Twisted into a thicker cord with a chain twisted in with it.

To this was attached some of my skull charms and bits from halloween last year. Then stamping onto shrink plastic with the flowers from Smeared Ink's "Bo Peep", coloured with promarkers, and attached with more chain.

I now have to make a necklace - a request after this was seen.

Next up is a bracelet and matching earring for soon-to-be DIL. Her 21st on Monday.
Again using a set from Smeared Ink . This time the original Li'l Grumpies. The small set lends itself so well to this kinda thing.

The reason there's only one earring? She only needs the one. She has a small hoop in the other ear.

Multi coloured this time. Various beads, pearls and findings from stash.

I am entering the skull bracelet into the challenge over at
Haunted Design House - #87 - Freakers Free For All
