School Hasn't Even Started!

School doesn't start around here until September 2, and I am already preparing for Halloween! Not because I am a Halloween nut, but I'm getting ready for my first craft fair in mid-September.Here are some of the bracelets I've been making. I'd love pricing suggestions when you leave a comment!I did different styles and colors of hemp and varied the combinations of yellow and orange, some sparkly, some ceramic. I'm calling them candy corn bracelets. I'm also making some stretchy bracelets and a few with memory wire that I haven't taken pictures of yet. This one has hand-made glass pumpkins. It's very shiny, but only the green beads are cut to sparkle.Although there are no theme beads here, it's Halloween-y to me because of the colors I used. The clear beads are what is called "lampwork" with the glass being decorated over a lamp or flame. Using thin sticks of colored glass, the artist decorates the beads so they are more textural. These have black knobbies.

You're really enjoying this ETSY thing, aren't you? You do nice work and you're right--the colors do say Halloween.
