I love October, and all the colours and the surprising weather and the sense of suspense – like something wonderful is coming!
To celebrate October and all the ghoulish goodies that implies – we’re selecting some thematically relevant dark and stormy items for sale!
Gunmetal and Black Metal Beads and Findings?Grunge get glamor and goth grows up. Dracula really digs this stuff. Sometimes the perfect accent is just to blend into the background.
Maybe a little rubber to go with that look? Rubber tubing, the cord (solid) can string/weave/knot – the tubing is hollow – run wire or beading cable or memory wire through it. Or just string on it too.
What is Halloween without a few skulls kicking around – it takes a head to get ahead, you know – that’s using the old noggin.
And how about some black stones – on the theme of so hot that it’s cool – Lava!
For a more polished look – you can’t beat Onyx – so glossy and shiny! Unless it is matte.
Hematite – a dark glossy grey – well – not anymore because now you can get it in all sorts of colours due to sophisticated coating techniques. It makes a good stone, it makes a good base too.
If we’re doing the hematite, how about the magnetic hematite? You can always store them stuck to your fridge until you need them. 😉
