Owls, Roses, and Amethyst

About this design:

I used some of the Gift Certificate from the contest to buy components to make myself a necklace & earrings based on the story & Fresh Pick, 'Midnight Decision'. I think it came out just spooky enough...


Amethyst nuggets, GG Owl, Owl Charms, Plated Rose beads, Rose Skull (all from LB), plus Amethyst faceted rondelles, sterling dotted spacers, sterling hook, sterling chain, fancy sterling headpin.

    I added one of the ‘Rose Skulls’ at the end of the extender chain – so perfect to find a skull w/ roses! and I picked the background paper because it reminds me of old wallpaper.
