InstructionsBoo charm stamped with letters Boo, then covered with Martha Steward glitter paint. Hand made bail formed from 16 gauge copper wire, formed around a large pill bottle. Amount of beads in between each charm depends on size and width of beads/charms. To finish the bail, bend each end inward to form a small loop first, then bend again outwards for the larger loop to hold the cording.

What was your inspiration?
I made the polymer clay ghost and the stamped Boo charm about two weeks ago, and I needed to finish this before Halloween! I also like the spider charm - puffy clear sticker on blank, covered with Dimensional Magic.
What are you most proud of?
That I stopped what I was doing and finished a necklace for myself. I rarely do that! I was also glad that I found a scary skull charm - so many of them are too cutesy for what I wanted. I also like how the effect of the cris-crossed orange hemp around the leather. The leather alone was just too plain.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Do something for yourself every once in a while!
