31 Skull Designs: Day One...

I thought that for the month of October, I'd do a design featuring skull-themed components everyday. I thought it might be a nice way to celebrate the season and get in the mood for Halloween. For the first Skull Design, I made a pair of earrings. In this design, I used brown-colored niobium earwires from the Odyssey & Bead Expressions, crystal copper Swarovski Crystals from Fusion Beads, Czech glass from Artbeads.com, a variety of copper chain from Ornamentea, faceted pearls from Talisman Associates and the polymer skull charms from Lynn Davis of Expedition D. I love the warm, rich autumnal color palette and how cute the round-faced skulls are. The design is simple, with lots of movement.

I hope everyone enjoys the 31 days of skull designs!

I'm always curious how you use the beads, it's fantastic to see the little skullies as earrings. I love the colors and movement of them, I bet they're fun to wear! Thanks for adding your great design to them, I'm excited about the results.
