Halloween Jewelry

by mary October 12, 2014

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays -- especially for decorating & for holiday-inspired jewelry! 

Fortunately, there are quite a few vintage Halloween Cracker Jack, gumball & vending machine charms available to work with -- including metal, plastic & even celluloid!

Here are some of my favorite pieces . . .

This first charm bracelet is made with pencil topper charms from the Universal Studios monster series, as well as a King Kong charm.  It's hanging around a plastic Marx wolfman model.

This next one is made with pink, silver & black beads, & a new old stock (NOS) Halloween charm I got at my favorite bead shop in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

I really like the orange covered chain & the orange pumpkin charm on this next charm bracelet.  I used a black wash on the skull charms to give them a more spooky look!

This last charm bracelet features the really tiny charms made of celluloid & other early plastic including a rate, skull, & devil, plus a little glass dice bead.  (I apologize for the blurriness of the picture -- this was before we finally purchased a good DSLR camera.)

I've also made some fun Halloween earrings, including these witch earrings made with styrene witch charms.  I've made similar earrings with styrene devil & skeleton charms!

And just recently, I made these dangling skull earrings.  I think they should be really fun to wear!

That's a sampling of some of my finished Halloween jewelry.  Right now, I'm working on a skull ring that I made using lost wax casting -- hope to have it done in time to wear for the holiday!

As always, thanks for reading & for supporting small businesses!  To see more of my jewelry, check out my website at http://paulinesjewelrybox.com.  And have a spooky Halloween!
