OK - I am going to post cruddy pics of what I have to offer, but give the actual rundown now so all I have to do later is alter the photos!

I am by popular demand offering a jewelry set featuring skulls - but not your normal every day skulls! No sirree - these are USA made pewter skulls - and here is a close up of the necklace so you can take a good look at them!



In addition, just in case someone who dislikes skulls gets this set, the presence of skulls is not overwhelming.

Here is most of the set in one photo! The primary components are black onyx, flourite and garnet beads. It took me a while to decide on what to make because I knew I wanted black (cause black is good), and I wanted garnet (cause it is the closest I can get to a stone that looks blood red) but wasn't sure what else I wanted. I finally chose flourite because it is flourescent (hence the word flourescent - duh) and will glow in black light! How fun is that!

The 2mm metal beads are silver or gold plated on something magnetic so I am sure there are nickel in those, but the metal spacers between the larger beads that look like jacks are tibetan silver (they are not magnetic so are relatively pure silver).



there are a pair of earrings that feature the pewter skulls and black onyx, on sterling silver findings:



there is a second pair of earrings for the daring soul - the lovely 4 inch chain with a thread through bar (I added plastic ends to keep them from falling out in case your holes are loose  Wink ). The stones are a garnet surrounded by two nearly clear flourites:



there are no skulls on the bracelet - it is 7.5 inches in length and is designed to be an extender for the necklace in case someone wants a really loooong necklace, or wants to double it over as a choker! The clasp is a sterling silver lobster claw and the closed jump ring is also sterling silver! The wire guardians are not silver - they are silver plated, but I don't know what the base metal is. They are magnetic so likely contain some nickel.



The necklace is 17.5 inches long with a 2 inch sterling silver extension chain. Again, the clasp is a sterling silver lobster claw and the closed jump ring is also sterling silver! The wire guardians are again, not silver. As you can see, flourite comes in a wide range of colors from nearly clear in white, violet, green, and dark purple to nearly opaque in the same color ranges - but all are flourescent flourite!



and here we have a matched pair of cell phone dangles or zipper dangles that have a small bone charm and a different skull - one with a floppy jaw for your amusement and enjoyment!



Since I am nearly always sending one of these in every swap package, I will be trying to make made a matching magnetic hematite bracelet tonight and will add that when I change the pictures out and I am finally adding that photo. It has black onyx, flourite, and garnet with mostly tibetan silver or goldtone over tibetan silver findings. And of course magnetic hematite.



I talked my DD into putting on the magnetic length as a choker and the necklace for an action shot...



better pictures will be added soon

Ronda
Blessings!

Ok I'm not officially on the list yet, but i sent in my questionnaire an hour or so ago so here's my entry:



I'm offering two crochet ear flap hats and a multistitch multicolored tunisian crochet scarf. The Scarf is light blue, gray, and white made using knit, purl, and simple tunisian crochet stitches and it has a single crochet border and a slight picot bottom edging, if that makes sense.

mmm, more pretty things! 

Bigmouth-- the paper is lovely; about what size is it?  Are they standard-size sheets, or smaller?
