BSBP


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...

BSBP!

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,
Kel

I love the fun use of black and white with the skull.

It is a really fun necklace... and they are really fun beads. The focal almost looks like an Egyptian mummy!

That is so fun! I never would have thought of using a jack skellington theme, but I love it! He's one of our favorite characters too and hubs has a hat, a t-shirt and a small plush doll that goes in the branches of the Christmas tree :o) Love the design!

Fun necklace, the skeleton scull is very cool.

I TOTALLY see Jack in that necklace. That was a great thought process. I wish I had that kind of way of designing -- seeing stories in beads. I think I lack imagination or something or am in too much of a hurry. You'd think as much as I read, I'd be better at that!

It's a cool piece -- thanks for partying with me!

What an interesting idea to pull from a movie character. It seems to have worked out wonderfully! Well done! It's the perfect necklace with Halloween fast approaching. Great job.

Creativity is a great way to get our minds off of what ever it is we are dealing with. So many now have fibromyaliga...I hope for you to have many more good days than bad. You did a Soup-er job on your necklace!
