I made some jewelry for my partner in the Skull Swap.  For the bracelet I used memory wire, some beads that reminded me of bone, tiny red hearts, a flower button, and a clay skull.  Red and turquoise is on of my favorite color combos so I just love how this turned out!


I also had these wooden tiles with holes punched in them that I wanted to play with.  Luckily I had some Dia De Los Muertos stickers that fit on the tiles perfectly!  I stuck the stickers on the tiles, trimmed any overhang, then sealed them with Mod Podge before covering them with Diamond Glaze.  The first one I sent to my partner and the second one I kept for myself.

That bracelet is adorable!  I'm not the ardent skull fan you are, but even I would wear that one!  Grin

The necklaces really turned out well, too!  I bet your partner liked her package!  And I can totally see you wearing the other one.  So you!  Wink

Very me!  I haven't worn it yet since I don't think it would go over well at work and I tend to forget to put on much jewelry on weekends....

I have quite a few unfinished projects myself! Luckily the bracelets work up pretty quick especially if you use memory wire.

These are really cool. I love skulls, 'Sugar Skull', and Day of the Dead themed creations. These sort of look like a mix between Day of the Dead and old style tattoos  Smiley
