my lovely friend mija and i got paired up in a halloween jewelry exchange over at mmca. what fun, what fun! mija not only sent me a Gorgeous spooky necklace but loads of cool ephemera and Chocolate! thank you, friend!!!
here's the necklace mija made for me. it has biwa pearls, big moonstones (i think they are moonstones. is that right, mija?) and this mag skelly pendant. he's fiber with bits of black netting sewn on. :0) love it!!
here's the necklace i made for mija. i used an image from a mixed media piece i did. mija has always loved that piece. she told me it waves at her soul. so i put it under thick faceted glass. it's got a big fat pearl hanging off of it. those big black teardrop shaped stones are blue tiger eye. i had never seen them before and they sure are pretty. they have little bits of white running through them. then there are little silver pearls wrapped with the wire and some biwa pearls. i lost this for several weeks (shocking, right?) and finally found it just in time to get it to her for halloween. those blackbird earrings i posted a bit ago are for her as well.
happy halloweenie! and remember, it's not what you wear, it's who you scare! i hope these big pictures of my head didn't frighten you too much! i have to squint when i look at them...
