Halloween is one of the top holidays for décor, candy and accessories, making Halloween jewelry a real treat and great addition to jewelry collections. This jewelry set offers a sophisticated fright-night style. The orange Celestial Crystal® beads make a huge statement with their half-coat smoky AB finish, giving depth and visual interest to the overall design. Their faceting reflects lively highlights and is beautifully emphasized by the Dyna-Mites™ seed beads used as spacer beads.

The edgy Czech pressed glass top-drilled dagger beads add youthfulness to this piece. They have slender, petal-like shapes and add flashes of color and shine to the necklace. The odd-numbered groupings help to give this design visual balance.

This design cleverly uses gunmetal-plated brass finished chain to create the web-like look. The chain is cut and jumprings are used to design the bib-style centerpiece. The gunmetal-plated brass finish blends perfectly with the orange Celestial Crystal® beads with their half-coat smoky AB finish, and the black Czech pressed glass top-drilled dagger beads.

The off-centered placement of the spider in the necklace centerpiece, and the spiders dangling from the earrings, add a stylish touch to the Halloween-inspired design. Wear the earrings and necklace together as a coordinated set or separately for a different look. Pull hair back to show off the dangle earrings and wear the necklace with a high neck or off-the-shoulder blouse for a major statement. Pair with dark tones, orange or neutrals for a fashion-forward result.

The jewelry set is professionally finished with crimp covers and Accu-Guard™ wire protectors in gunmetal-plated brass. The crimp covers conceal the crimp beads for a flawless appearance. Accu-Guard wire protectors are designed to protect Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire against wear from clasps and other sharp-edged components. Wire protectors are like bullion or French wire, but in a pre-curved horseshoe shape.
