My favorite season of the year is upon us, yes Halloween and fall. Halloween has always been my all time favorite holiday even when I was just a kid. The excitement of what you can create and use as a costume along with grabbing up all that awesome candy.
I have very fond memories of being a child and going trick or treating with my dad around the neighborhood. I am now an adult, I guess, but I still have those creative urges to go outside the “normal” box this time of year. Usually we have a costume / cube contest at my job, but this year, my job was eliminated on the day I ordered my fabric for my super awesome costume. Maybe someday I will be working for a company that lets the employees celebrate the most awesome holiday of the year, but until then, I am able to share my creativity and craziness with my jewelry line.
I usually come up with my designs in my head, but this one I sketched out before I actually sat down to build. Here is my very rough sketch:
I ended up working on this necklace for roughly about 15 hours. Why did it take so long? Well, each orange pearl is hand pinned and then attached to the chain. The spiders are also hand attached to the necklace. This one turned out to be a stunner! I am so happy with the final outcome (see pics below).
