Halloween Design Inspiration {Jewelry - Part 2}

 

Skulls & Chains
 This is the necklace I created using the skulls from my previous post.
I had submitted this to a mag but it didn't get picked up. That's ok,
because now I can wear it on Halloween. I'm liking the glam goth/
glam rock look!





Skulls & Chains
Close up view of the little skull. (left) 
I wrapped each skull head with
some wire and attached them to the necklace.


I wanted to make matching wrapped skull head earrings
but haven't got around to that yet. ;)



But this coral pair was created yesterday...
(below)





Mr. & Mrs. ---SOLD!---



I haven't decided if they are going to be earrings or not.
I had the little black ribbon flower and it looked like a hat
so one of the skulls got the hat. Then I thought they looked like
a cute pair. So I named them Mr. & Mrs.!



They are ready to become earrings (just need to add the ear hooks).
Or, they can be a focal on a necklace or bracelet. They are
on the bigger side. (see the previous post link to visit the etsy
shop where I purchased them).




Hope you enjoyed this Halloween themed post!

Halloween Design Inspiration {Supplies - Part 1}

I purchased these cute skull beads a while back when designing for a particular theme. Since my design didn't end up getting published I will share it here. Plus I want to wear it for Halloween. :)

Aren't these the cutest peach skulls with gold flowers for eyes?!!
I pictured these as earrings so we will see how they turn out.
(Return back tomorrow to see what I created!)

These little guys ended up in a necklace.
I really like how the necklace turned out...
a mix of goth glam/ goth rock edge (in my opinion lol).

1 Necklace...3 Photo Looks {Mother's Day Necklace - Part 3 of 3}

Angel Wing necklace w/ background props.
I used a allover color tone with this photo.
 
This necklace is special to me because it's mine.
It represents me, my kids, and my mom.
 
I've been meaning to post earlier but the summer has just flown by!
 
 
This pic was actually taken on a very white cake stand.
I then added a "sun-washed" vintage color to this pic.
 
When editing my photos of this necklace I tried out 3 different looks.


When taking these pics I was picturing a darker grunge look.
I applied a frame to the pic and added a pattern to the background.

 
Hope you enjoyed the pics! I plan on adding some to my shop. Contact me if you can't wait. ;)

Another first!


 
Here's a collage of my first published bracelet! It's in Bead-it Today.
The August issue is out now.
 
I love using vintage pieces in my designs. The bracelet above features a vintage Weiss brooch. This brooch was given to me but you can find similar ones online or at estate sales.

Tip: Make sure you always look at the back of the brooch if you are looking for a signed Weiss brooch. Here's a website with advise on how to spot fakes! http://vintagecostumejewels.com/Info/How_to_Spot_Fake_Weiss_Jewelry.htm

Here's some I found that you can use to create your own 'vintage brooch' bracelet!
Design Tip: Don't cut off the pin part of the brooch if its a real Weiss brooch. Keep the integrity of it so you can wear it again as a brooch at a later time.

Follow Roxanne's board vintage brooches on Pinterest.

Mother's Day Jewelry - Part 2 of 3


 
This is the second angel wing necklace I made for Mother's Day.


 
I made it for my sister. She has a little boy so I used a pretty blue
bead with gold trim. I also added a tiny little vintage locket.
 

 
I've had these 'Vintaj' (brand) angel wings for a while now
and have been waiting for the perfect time to use them!
 
{My mom received the left side angel wing pendant and I made a
 necklace for my sister with the corresponding right side angel wing.}
