So, the latest theme to "inspire" my crafts has been Twilight, of course, like many many MANYMANY other women my age [as well as younger and older women]! heh.










Materials: a big, dark silver link chain from Michael's; some red velvet ribbon; black diamond-shape black beads; ruby glass "blood drop" beads; a Swarski crystal heart [teehee!]; some black pearl/hemotite(?)-like dark silver beads that I already had [which don't photograph well, but trust me, the colour reads better in person]; and various findings of course.

I weaved the ribbon through the links and tried to glue it at the ends, but the glue didn't work and left a mess so I picked off what I could and just hand-sewed the ends around the link. Everything else is just as it seems.

MAN, I forgot how much I hate making wire loops! lol

This really beautiful!  Grin I love the wire with the ribbon weaved through. Also the red teardrop beads are great. They look like blood without being gorey.  Wink

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
