chain reaction

combining chain with beads turned out to be a bit of a math problem
but luckily it was may favorite subject 
(next to art class)
i was a bit tricky at first 
 trying to hold the beads and chain in place 
once the middle three rows where done it got easier
-------
below , a simpler, just as effective project

more skull jewelry

as always, one thing leads to another and another
i enjoyed the last 2 necklaces so much and had some leftover
skulls and just had to make more
searching through my stash i found a fun skull cameo and lava beads
combined with red pearls and metal  
i like the look

(below)
i also found a cross which i filled with resin clay
 and added some howlite and turquoise

chain reaction

it always starts with one little thing which sends me down a path to making a ton more
these little skulls i found at the john bead outlet
they matched perfectly with my leftover howllite
a bit of chain and some nylon coated wire



after wearing it out, a few friends wanted one of there own
which lead me to several more
i love this one below
