It’s no secret that I love Halloween.  It’s my favorite holiday! Dressing up, candy, spooky decorations, parties… what’s not to like?  I’m so excited to decorate this year because I’ve always wanted to have a mantle to decorate and my new home has not one but two! I’ve been busy pinning lots of great ideas and plan to spend this weekend crafting up a storm.  The last couple of weeks I have been on a real Halloween jewelry kick and after posting the Red Eye Pearl Necklace, I wanted to make something in a completely different color scheme.  Of course I couldn’t keep it simple and make just one necklace.  No!  I had to make a trio of spooky, sparkly necklaces!  Worn together or separately, these necklaces are perfect to wear this fall!


Heads Will Roll Necklace:  This is a simple strung necklace perfect for the beginning beader.  String the beads onto bronze beading wire in your desired pattern.  Faceted matte black beads are used for the main color with topaz cathedral beads, stone skull beads and antique brass beads spread randomly throughout.  Attach jump rings to each part of your toggle clasp and secure the beading wire to the jump ring with a crimp bead.  Cover the crimp bead with a crimp cover to finish.
Supply list found HERE.


Jack’s Revenge Necklace:  String skull and pumpkin beads onto head pins and make either a wrapped or simple loop.  Glue rivoli crystal into setting.  Find the center of the chain and hang the pumpkin dangle with a jump ring.  With a large jump ring, attach the spike crystal to the chain.  Use a small jump ring to hang the rest of the charms on the chain, skipping a link in between each charm.  Check the length of the chain, trimming if necessary then use jump rings to attach the clasp to either end.

Halloween Chevron Necklace:  String beads onto eye pins in the order shown in the picture above.  Thread beads onto head pins and make loops.  Use a large jump ring to make the spike crystal into a charm and attach the beaded dangles and charms to the end of the eye pins with small jump rings.  Thread the loops of your beaded eye pins onto another eye pin, alternating each eye pin with an antique brass cube bead.  Finish with a simple loop.  Create beaded links to attach the evil eye chain to either side of the center piece.  Complete the necklace by attaching a lobster clasp to one side of the chain and several large jump rings and a charm on the other.  Watch the video tutorial on our Facebook page!

Aren’t these Halloween charms from TierraCast just the cutest?  The Swarovski crystals in the crystal gold patina add just the right amount of sparkle but still manage to have that gothic look to them.  There is something about this color combination that really speaks to my Halloween-loving soul.  Top them off with antique brass components and you have a winning combination!  I’ve linked up the individual supply lists with the directions above but if you want to make the complete set, you can find that supply list HERE.
