It's a jewelry-making treat for Halloween--no tricks. This Halloween, scare up some holiday sales with fun, seasonal jewelry design ideas. Of course, pumpkins and black cats are well-known symbols of Halloween, but you might also want to try some of these fun ideas for ghoulishly good times.

Monster Mash

Iconic monsters make for great Halloween jewelry inspiration. Piece together a Frankenstein head or other shape such as a green heart with polymer clay and black clay ''stitches,'' then make it come to life with the help of micro hardware bolts.

Green Heart with Polymer Clay and Black Clay

Brew up some fun by topping off green Swarovski® crystals with stacked jet black marguerites and a bicone to resemble a wicked witch with hat. Or, go with an existing witch hat cone available in silver and antique gold-plated as well as black enamel.

Haunt customers' ears with little white ghosts made from polymer clay or upside down translucent acrylic flowers topped with a white cat's eye glass round bead.

Of course, there are existing monster charms, beads and other supplies as well if you don't want to create your own. Add Halloween charms to a necklace, bracelet or earrings for a spooktacular result. You'll find shambling zombies an adorable mummy, lampworked glass reaper and more.
Halloween-Themed Beads and Components

Skeleton Crew

Swarovski Crystal Skulls Skulls and skeletons dance across Halloween designs offering macabre ambience. Try chokers in the shape of skeleton hands or cufflets in any and all metal tones attached to multiple fingers resembling finger bones. Don't forget Swarovski® crystals' gorgeous crystal skulls, too--which can be strung with seed bead bodies for fun movement.

Bats in the Belfry

Spread your creative wings to incorporate bats. Create batty wings--or a cute little bat itself--from polymer clay or leather. Vampires go hand in hand with bats on Halloween, so use white beads and longer focal components to create the illusion of fangs. Two red beads on a chain or pearl choker resemble a vampire bite to add just a touch of Halloween to necklines. B8A5 Design Idea Necklace

Along Came a Spider

Eight legs provide fun opportunities in jewelry for hanging in webs or dangling glass beads and other design elements from. Spiders and their webs can be made from polymer, crystals, wire and more--the design possibilities are endless. Get the creepy crawly aesthetic all the way down to the details like bead caps with spider web prints.

Have some scary good fun this fall, and every autumn, with these Halloween design suggestions. You and your customers will be some seriously glamorous ghouls.
