I am sooooo excited about this necklace. SO. EXCITED. I've had the idea in my head for a while now, and just barely found the time to actually create it. And I'm so happy with the end result! Sometimes my ideas don't exactly pan out, and it's really disappointing. But this is not one of those times.
This took me a looong time to make. But the end result was worth it. The hardest part was figuring out how to attach all of the chains to make the intricate pattern. I used all gunmetal findings. The setting is brass with a black enamel finish. The skeleton cameo is acrylic. The tiny red crystals are Swarovski.
I love Halloween. I just think it's so much fun. And I kind of like being scared. I mean, not actually scared...but Halloween-type scared. And I like watching scary movies with my husband. Because he gets even more scared than I do. Probably why he never wants to watch them....
So here is my necklace, based on this portion of a poem by Edgar Allan Poe:
Be silent in that solitude,
Which is not loneliness--for then
The spirits of the dead, who stood
In life before thee, are again
In death around thee, and their will
Shall overshadow thee; be still.
