I have always loved Halloween. The artist in me loves to dress up, and to see all the creativity put forth in peoples costumes. I mean, making an awesome costume is an art all itself, right?
I also love to see what shows up seasonally on pinterest and etsy. So I thought I'd share some of my favorites today.
Maybe these aren't totally Halloween, but they capture the spirit of the season, and I just adore them- Earrings by Two Trees Studio
This piece just spoke to me as the days get shorter, and the nights gets longer. I reminds me of fall. I just purchased a couple of her pieces, and I love them!
Elise Mahan Fine Art
Marsha Neal has these adorable bat pendants, I bought a few last year and they were a hit!
Diane Hawkey has some great ravens and this set in her shop! Always nice to find another Poe fan.
Also, more then Halloween- I love the tradition and artistry that goes along with the Day of the Dead. Diana P of Suburban Girl Studio did a blog hop with art beads for Halloween / Day of the Dead themes. You can check out the list, so you can hop and see all the fun creations everyone made here.
However, I loved this particular blog by Linda Landig- not only was the piece she made great, but she did a beautiful write up on the Day of the Dead celebration.
I really think that Linda's piece below captures the spirit of the Day of the Dead. It is festive and fun, and she put a lot of tidbits in there that mimic the traditions. Just love it!
I also found this amazing necklace below.......

And............. I'd also like to show off the Day of the Dead piece that I made for the blog hop. I am pretty excited about it- since it features a new 3-d bronze skull that I am working on.

Have a great day- eat some candy, be nice to the little kids and enjoy the creativity!!!!
