This is my second Halloween related post this week but don’t hate me, OK?
But if you want to know what is really weird, it is that I was actually working on a Christmas project, and in the process of cleaning up my space I kept finding black and orange bits and pieces that I’ve had around for a while.
I thought they were trying to tell me something.
“Hey, stop hoarding and make something with me!!”
Yeah, that was probably it.
I purchased these tatted pieces from the Etsy shop TotusMel Tats on April 1st 2010. Um. Yeah.
Sterling silver ball headpins from Beadalon and Swarovski crystals are attached at the points with a wire wrapped loop.
I can’t even begin to guess when I bought the orange and black lampwork beads. But I imagine it’s been a year or more, same with the black and orange Swarovski crystals. The black acrylic pieces are new from my local bead shop.
The orange puffy discs are also from my local bead shop and they’ve been here for a while but the crystals dangling from the bottom are from Connie Crystal and I just got those this summer.
All three pieces are made with simple loops and wire wrapped loops. Very simple and quick to make.
Now I just need to decide if I will list them in my Etsy shop or keep them on hand to wear in October.
Oh, wait! Now that I’ve used some of my beads does this mean I get to go buy more?
