I've gone a little batty!

In the spirit of the season, I've made a couple of bat necklaces. The first is Night Shift, pictured above. It features a pewter bat by Green Girl as the focal. The second is Baby Bat, which has a lampworked bat and accent beads made by Joan "Mothwoman" Eckard. In both cases my goal was to make a nice, Gothy bat necklace that wasn't in stereotypical Halloween colors. After all, loving bats doesn't mean that you also automatically love orange! I'm very happy with both necklaces and feel a strong desire to wear them all over the town for the rest of the month. I think I'll have to make myself a bat necklace now!

I tried something new with the pictures, zooming in so that only part of the necklace stand is in the image. It seemed like a better idea in my head than it turned out to be in actuality. I'm starting to develop a strong loathing for that particular necklace board. I like the black velvet-y one much better, but neither of these necklaces would have looked good on it.

In honor of today's batty necklaces, I have to share these socks. Knee highs with bats on them! How cool is that? I plan to make a Sock Dreams order sometime this month, now that it's about time to put the sandals away for the year... The hard part is going to be not going overboard.

    The socks are very cute! I like both the bat necklaces. I made a bat necklace with Lois' bats for a friend, but I dangled all the bats.

  2. Oddly enough I don't have any of Lois's bats, I'll have to get some from her soon.

  3. I am obsessed with Sock Dreams!

    Love the bat necklace!

  4. Thank you, Melanie!

    I saw that you got the socks and arm warmers for your faerie costume from Sock Dreams. I seem them recommended all over the place, so I'm really looking forward to placing an order. Probably next week!
