The only thing I hate about Halloween is the fact that every year I have to think of a costume to wear and every year I fail.  This year I decided to be myself (again... although someone did say I looked like Pocahontas   Huh) so I made myself these lovelies to wear:

A long necklace


and a bracelet


I love the beads I used for these.  There are 2 different colours of beads in 2 sizes (10mm in the necklace and 8mm in the bracelet).  I also used black and bright blue chain (the colour of the blue chain is amazing.  It's a lot brighter than it looks in the picture) which I love at the moment.
I got a few compliments which I was very happy about  =)

Also while I'm here I'll post a picture of another necklace I made:



This is one huge necklace!  It goes around my neck 4 times and would manage a 5th time if I put a clasp on it.  It looks great worn around my wrist too  =)

They are Gutterman (hope I spelled that right) beads.  I got them from Hobbycraft.  I've seen them on a few websites so do a quick search on google and I'm sure you'll find some  =)

Those are so pretty! I love the beads, too. Does the colorful chain stay colorful, or does it chip?

So far the chain has been good.  I've not been using it long but I haven't noticed any colour loss yet.

Nope, but I'll take some more (providing my camera behaves!).  If by any chance you live in the UK then you'll be able to find it in Hobbycraft (they also have it in pink and purple) or you can find the blue here:  http://jillybeads.co.uk/acatalog/  but other than those places I haven't seen it anywhere else.
