Queen Bee Steampunk Necklace

I have been holding onto some old pocket watch faces, not sure how I wanted to use them. I was playing around with some of my metal stampings and thought this looked kinda fun, the Queen Bee. I found a some new silver colored chain that sparkles so nicely. So I strung them all up together for this necklace.

I also made a new caged bird necklace. This one I added some of my new crystal ball beads. I love these! I have them in white, pink and blue, and then I have a silver color as well as a black oxidized color. I could easily hoard these and not want to use them, but I let a couple go for this new necklace.

Transformers Halloween Costume

I have always loved dressing up for Halloween. As a kid I spent many nights working on elaborate costume like Super Chicken and a very authentic Gumby that I wore in college. The Gumby costume netted my quite a few contest prizes. My friends toted me from bar to bar entering as many contests in one night as possible. The downside was it was very difficult to go to the bathroom, and it was highly flamable. I love watching the Today show and Regis & Kelly to see the costume contests. I found this amazing Transformers costume on YouTube someone took a loooong time on this one. See it here.

New necklaces

This week I have just wanted to hang at home, not feeling socializing much. So I stayed in and created several new necklaces. I am really trying to mix grunge with glitter, old with new you get the idea. Here are some of my latest creations. I would love to know what you think.
