Happy Autumn!

It's officially autumn now (the TNBC calendar says "Autumn Equinox" so it must be so), and I can therefore stop feeling a bit premature for talking about Halloween :) So, with only five and a half weeks, or 38 days, to go until the big day, I've been adding lots more spooky goodies to the Etsy shop.

After buying some wonderful Halloween-themed supplies, I created a little collection of beaded dangles:

The little bells I bought were used in creating these three pieces:

Purple Bat Dangle - a beaded Halloween decoration

Green Witchy Dangle - a beaded Halloween decoration

My favourite is this one, because the large orange bead looks like a big chunk of candy :)

Orange Bat Dangle - a beaded Halloween decoration

I'd also bought some glow-in-the-dark beads, both round and bat-shaped, which went into the making of these:

Glow-in-the-Dark Bat Dangle - a beaded Halloween decoration

Little Glow-in-the-Dark Bat Dangle - a Halloween decoration in beads and copper wire

Pop into the Halloween section of my shop for all of the above and more!

I've also been working on a commission for four silver pieces:


You can't tell from this picture, but the bat on the bottom right is huge! 16 inches wide in fact, double the size of my usual bats. Was awkward but fun to make :)
