“I love holiday stuff! Wish you were teaching us the pirate cane for Halloween. Maybe in the future??? Fingers crossed.” ~Lisa-V
The answer is yes Lisa, I will teach the Pirate Cane at some point. But unfortunately not quite yet. Something weird happened this year. Seems as though time went twice as fast as usual. And many of the things I wanted to get done by now, simply have not happened yet. Anyone else having this not-enough-hours-in-the-day problem? Or is it just me?
This was especially the case with the Halloween Beads and Canes I had planned to teach you. In September when I should have been filming for Halloween, the kids were heading back to school and my mind was still holding on to Summer.
Then when October hit and it dawned on me that it was going to be Fall and Halloween, it was too late. The videos had already been planned and were in production. I’m sorry about that.
I would like is some holiday bead tutorials, such as Halloween beads, Christmas beads etc. Like beads/canes with a holiday theme to make holiday jewelry with. Possibly you did these tutorials before I was a member? Love your site and everything you do. ~Maureen-G
Since some of you have been asking for Halloween Bead and Jewelry tutorials, I thought today I would at least provide you with links to some archived Halloween inspired articles and pics. If you haven’t already seen them (and even if you have), hopefully they will give you some ideas for this year.
- Pirate Crossbones Jewelry
- Halloween Spider Pendant Idea
- Polymer Clay Halloween Pumpkin Beads
- Luna Lovegood Radish Earrings
Plus here are a some more Halloween Jewelry and polymer clay bead making ideas that have come from you guys in previous article comments:
Love the clay background pattern techniques. I had some Halloween canes and made some pillow beads out of the pattern. They came out so awesome. I’m having so much fun and catching on quite quickly. It’s very satisfying to know that I made the beads I use making the design. Thanks for all you knowledge. ~Mary-N
I think the bullseye cane and the mod cane would look really cool if it had some white in the bullseye so it would look like a real eye, or a bunch of real eyes. It would have many uses for Halloween!” ~Katina-K
YES! Thank you so much. I am going to print out this Polymer Clay Brand Chart and hang it by my little working table. I’m sure it will save me a few dollars in experimenting… although experimenting is quite fun. I am now trying a Halloween mixture of Sculpey III with ecru and two different oranges and I’m trying to marble the look, instead of just making your basic ick-mess color! Thank you for the articles. ~Pamela-R
Please do share your other Halloween ideas in the comments section below. There’s still a whole week before this fun October holiday theme wraps up for another year… lots of time to some Halloween inspired polymer clay jewelry items or accents.
