First, let me apologize for not checking thoroughly to see that this posted correctly. I actually posted it early, but did it from my (not so smart) Smartphone app and I trusted that it posted successfully. Alas, it did not, so...
Let's try again...
First I would like to thank Lori for all the hard work, many hours, and patience she provided so we could all enjoy this wonderful opportunity. Second, I would like to thank Laurel for taking the time to use her talents to make such unique and fun polymer clay beads. Third, I would like to thank all those whom participated in this BSBP. It's a wonderful way to fellowship and support each other in our creative endeavors. This is especially a great thing for those that are not able to physically participate in classes or other social beading activities.
I was truly challenged creatively. It was a long while before inspiration came to me. One of my favorite movies ever is "A Nightmare Before Christmas". Jack Skellington is a fascinating character and these beads brought him to mind. I added some sparkly (but not too blingy) beads, some Swarovski bronze crystals, some carved bone beads (he's a skeleton, right?), and a sugar skull added to the pendant.
I honestly had a blast creating this necklace. I look forward to hopping around to see what everyone has created!
Peace, Love, & Light,
