I made these for the 50's B-Movie Swap. There are so many great B-movie posters, it was hard to choose which ones to use. I didn't want to completely overdo it on the movie posters, so I added a scene from "Creature From the Black Lagoon". The "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" poster has red glitter in the layer behind it. The other two have black and silver glitter mixed together. (Sorry, I know the pics are not great.) I had another one cast that would have become a ring, but somehow a bunch of the glitter from the second layer bled/shifted to the bottom of the mold (the front of the image). Still not sure how that happened.

Plus some more I poured at the same time that were more generally horror-themed. The earrings are a little hard to see, the have black tombstones, like the ones in the pendant.

I made a beaded necklace and bracelet to go with them. It was really hard to find chunky plastic beads, but I finally found some on Etsy. As you may have noticed, I attached lobster clasps to the pendants so that they can easily be changed around on the beaded necklace without messing with jump rings and pliers.

Thanks for looking. Smiley

These look great! I <3 B-movies & the posters are usually so much more interesting than mainstream movies.
