Bejeweled Halloween Ideas

Sep 30, 2012

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to spook up a few appropriately-themed jewelry components, tutorials, and just-plain-fun eye candy!

I love the clever use of chain in this spider web bracelet and necklace set. Find the free tutorial on the Rings & Things web site.

 

Normally the sight of any spider can give me the heebie jeebies. But not this sparkletastic brooch by ParisXOX on Etsy!

 

I can't begin to speak of the skill involved in GrimaceAndSqueak's spectacular beaded masks! Visit their Etsy shop to check out close ups of this cat mask, as well as birds, jesters, and more!

 

 I had to throw in this beaded shoe by Teri Greeves (Beadwork Magazine's October/November "Bead Artist") as inspiration for the rest of your costume! Wow!

 

Ornamentea offers up this free tutorial for their quick-and-easy bat bracelet! Visit their web site for the how-to.

Thanks to jewelry designer, Lorelei Eurto, for tipping us off to these amazing porcelain bats on the Round Rabbit Extra site. These would make such a fun and creepy necklace!

 

And as long as we're on the topic of bats, check out these lovelies from one of my all-time favorite ceramic artists, Marsha Neal. We found out about these when Marsha sent us a few for inclusion in our product roundup in the Fall issue of Jewelry Stringing.

 

Alright, one more bat. Beading Daily editor, Jennifer VanBenschoten, did a little bead embroidery on this ceramic bat cabochon by Lisa Peters, and combined it with a few more of Lisa's components. See it on her 2011 Halloween post here.

 

You won't want to sink your teeth into one of these polymer clay candy corns (made you look twice didn't I?). But they sure would make a fun charm bracelet or set of earrings! Find the how-to over on No Big Dill's blog.

 

Oh what fun I could have loading a charm bracelet with these little gems from Artbeads.com. Find a whole host of Halloweeny goodies on their web site here.

 

Ok, so this is not exactly jewelry related, but I couldn't resist. Instructions for making these pumpkin decorations (with stockings!) can be found on the Home Seasons blog. I think I'd bling it up with a few flatback crystals here and there. Cool, huh?

What kind of Halloween jewelry and accessories do you wear? Do you have plans to bead any this year? Share your comments below!

Happy Halloween!
