As a newbie, I'm fascinated by everyone's fantastic work.
I made some candy corn beads yesterday and you would have thought I invented the light bulb, I was so pleased!!!!
I saw the pumpkins and they are unbelieveable!!! Now what other kinds of beads do yall make for halloween and fall in general????

Here are my little candycorns, the first one is kinda lopjawed but the second one turned out better AND they are almost the same size which has been a big challenge for me!! LOL I'm making earrings with these for my daughter who's birthday is Halloween. Anyway, these will give you artists a trip down memory lane when your beads were a little less than perfect!!!! :)

I'm not game to try candy corn yet! LOL! You have nice corn!

Yesterday, I made a halloween cat, modelled on some ugly thing in the Victorian Trading Co catalog, and a lil pumpkin with a huge stem! HAHA!

Here are a couple of ghosts that I made last year. I thought I had some other pics of some bats and candycorn but I can't seem it find the pic. I need to get busy making some more for this year but I don't want to admit that fall is coming.

Vickki- you won't try some simple corn but you'll try something as hard as a CAT!!!!! I love your cat, but I'm not even up to animals!!!! lol

Aimee, your little spooks are adorable!!! I hadn't thought of little ghosts!! thanks for all the wonderful inspiration ladies!!!

THANKS!
I loved your candy corns too! I think that was one of my "first" sculptural things I made. Ok..the first recognizable thing! LOL!

The hardest part of my kitty is striking the rubino nose w/out melting into oblivion. Lots of cat heads are melted off and "redone"!!

oh....and many tails have popped off due to heat loss....(sigh)...I sound like a kitty abuser! LOL!

Gigi, I love your beads especially the candy corn cat, so cute!!!

Jilley love your fall colors, there's those dang lentils again, I can see I'm going to have to break down one of these days and get one of those presses. Those beads are just tooooooooooooooooo pretty!!!

Nancy, wow, those hats are just perfect!!! Your ghosts and pumpkins are great too. I may have to get brave and try a ghost!! And shame on you for abusing those poor kitties!!! lol heck I still have dots pop off I cannot even begin to imagine arms and legs not to mention tails!!!!!

I don't like fall probably because it's followed by winter and I hate winter. It'd be different if we got snow but all we get is dead things!!! But I get spring fever really really bad!!!!

Debbie, go ahead and do the ghosts, I am sure you can do it!

Be sure to use DENSE black moretti for the eyes or they will get that dreaded "purple vs. black" on top of the white. Also, After I put dots on the eyes, I melt a bit and then take OUT of the flame for that last second before the dot sinks into white. That seems to keep them crisper.

The edges of the ghost are pinched with pliers, probably obvious, but I just wanted to mention it.

I use a razor blade tool to crease the pumpkins and the pumpkin stems.

Debbie, you should do the hat too! Just a cone, then wrap around one end and melt the wrap "not too much" to join the cone. Then place white dots, melt (I flatten them with a metal blade) then dot of DENSE black on edge of white to make the crescent moon shape.

I love fall! My bday is in the fall and it is harvest time on the farm, etc.

Everyones stuff is Amazing as always!
Here is a set I made a while ago , and being as my studio was in storage for a few months I haven't tried to remake another one . I have my studio set up now and am dying to use it but these stupid hurricanes keep messing up my weekend plans . Here's hoping that the pic will upload it's been awhile since I've had anything to show.
Happy Torching....and keep your fingers crossed Frances is heading straight for me!

I just love Halloween and Fall beads, they are some of my favorite. I hate orange, but just love BE orange for candy corns and pumpkins. For some reason, these pictures turned out very red. I can't seem to figure it out.

Fall is my favorite time of year!! I tend to use alot of autumn shades in my work anyway and I usually have to force myself to use other colors throughout the year. Autumn is the time of year I can just do what comes naturally. YEA! Here's a few of mine...
