Sweet Sugar

img_4267Sweet enough to eat.  But I wouldn’t.  You might break a tooth.

Another Day of the Dead image immortalized with a glass cabochon.  Also another foray into expanding my color palette, as I am not at all a pink person.

The skull is highlighted with bits of sparkle, then encased under glass.  The surrounding beads are a mix of 8°, 11° and 15°.

To keep the necklace from becoming totally saccharine, there’s a baby blue picot around the focal.

This piece was shouting loud and clear that it did not want to be a brooch.  So, necklace it is.

For continuity I used the same beads in the strand as are in the bezel.  A few hand-formed pink links allow for adjust-ability.  The whole is back with a Southwestern faux leather.
