Brass Embellished Halloween Jewelry

Tutorial Update:  The new faux tutorial is in re-write stage, but the end is in sight, I hope.   Stay tuned, and thanks again for your patience, everyone.

In the meantime, I took a mental break for a couple of days to list some of the more than 400 pieces I made while writing this gargantuan tutorial; and some new, brass and crystal embellished, mixed media Halloween pieces.   

I don't celebrate Halloween myself, but I hear it is the second biggest holiday in terms of sales, so I thought I would try a few pieces in the shop and see how it goes.  What do you think?  I aimed for whimsical but classy, if there is such a thing.  LOL

Notice how I worked in tartan patterns?  I couldn't resist!  I created the tartans especially for Halloween using in pumpkin orange, scaredy-cat black and ghostly white.  Hee Hee!

Those are great but you need Buster earrings for Halloween.

Those Tartan plaids are gorgeous. I'm still having trouble doing transfers and I don't know why.

Thank you, ladies!

Bonnie, these aren't polymer. You would never catch me using resin, for one. My OCD self would have a nervous breakdown with the bubbles, for one. Transfers haven't worked since they changed the clay formulas, which is why I retired my transfer tuts. Glossy paper like magazine paper seems to work best, but the results are not consistent.
