Octoberfest / Day of the Dead by Jewel School Friends & Toltec Jewels (A Blog Hop!)

I made some items for a swap on BeadSwap USA. :) I thought posting about them on here would be horribly and spookily appropriate since it was for a Halloween/Day of the Dead Swap.
Here's a pair of earrings I made for my swap partner, M.:

The bats and skulls are from The Beehive on facebook... they sell lots of cool beads! :) The earhooks are sterling silver!
And M's bracelet:
The two lampwork beads are made by Marcia of Shazazz Glass. :) The skull bead and the purple rounds are also from The Beehive. The Swarovski are just beads I had "laying around."

Here's the list of participating artists in the Blog Hops:
