Quick & Simple Halloween Necklace and Earrings!

I have always loved the Howlite Skull Beads we stock here at Bello Modo.  One of my favorite things to make are these triple stacked large skull earrings.  Each pair took about 20 minutes to make.

When looking for the larger 18mm skulls for the earring project, I was reminded of the smaller 9 mm sets that we stock and I thought, what perfect necklaces for my children while trick or treating if I combined them with glow in the dark glass rounds and 8/0 Round Reflection beads!!!  A simple stringing project with Elastoma makes this another quick project, taking about 30-40 minutes to produce two necklaces.wizard necklace

2 x Howlite Skull 12mm Assorted Set of 9

2 x Howlite Skull Bead – 12mm Turquoise (set of 2)

1 x 8mm Round – Glow in the Dark Crystal (strand of 19) (I actually used 21 of these in my design, you can either order 2 strands or simply add in some extra 8/0 Reflection beads near the end to make up the difference in length)

1 x 8/0 Round Reflection Honeydew

1 x Elastoma Clear .5mm diameter / 5 meter spool

 

Directions

For the necklace, simply choose a pattern and follow it until you have reached your desired length.  My pattern was *8mm Round, 8/0 Reflection Bead, Skull, 8/0 Reflection Bead, 8mm Round*.  Finish with the knot of your choice. (I used a surgeon’s knot)
