Student Helping Out Adds Youthful Ideas
The beads pictured here were crafted by Jill Gautreaux, a high school student who works at Adrift Art Studio. They are 16mm oval beads with a natural finish. These were chosen to best demonstrate ideas and suggestions for this hub. Jill turned out an assortment of designs to help offer ideas for this extreme Halloween bracelet jewelry. She used some bright colors when painting the pyrographic applications. Simple lines were drawn with the wood burning pen to suggest various Halloween themes. The bright colors were then splashed in to add to the fun.

This is just a small sampling of what might be accomplished with this art bead project. Mixing up different sizes of beads and colors are what will make the project a success. Shop Online if the right beads are not available in the local craft store. There are several stores that specialize in jewelry making supplies. Shop early for the best selection of colors and sizes.
From Art Beads To Jewelry Bracelet
The bracelets pictured here are samples of what can be done with the art beads after they are decorated. The four bracelets are all made with the bauble bead designed from the exact same,unfinished 16mm wooden bead. The added decorating on each art bead makes a one of a kind product that follows the extreme Halloween theme.
The witch is all decked out with green hemp for the base cord. Her painted colors were matched with black glass seed beads across the knotted cords. The finished bauble was enhanced with emerald green, crystal beads to add that creepy mystery often felt about witches. She is a shining example of how various applications can be done on the same kind of natural wooden bead.
The second picture of a ghoul with empty, orange eyes was attached to a metal bar and then added to a simple silver toned chain. It features a barrel clasp and is simple yet striking in that simplicity. A couple of smaller beads,one white wooden bead and one smaller glass bead were added top and bottom lending a little style to the assemblage.
This extreme Halloween pumpkin face was also strung on hemp to create a bracelet jewelry that rocks with Halloween color. Red hemp cord, black glass seed beads and larger, yellow wooden beads make this one of a kind bracelet a sure to fire the fun with those glowing eyes. A few missing teeth add creep to this extreme Halloween bracelet design.
The bangle styled bracelet at the bottom will suck you in with those red crystal beads offering up a sparkling surprise as you take a closer look and creep at the tiny shrunken heads strung along side. This basic crystal beauty is a curious work. Made from memory wire and blood red crystal beads that are enhanced with tiny copper colored seed beads this one is finished with a skull head bauble and a gold toned, lobster claw clasp. looks sweet until you take a closer look, yikes!
