Show Me Sunday

  This week, we are featuring some of my favorite spooky beads from one of my favorite bead makers, Joan Miller. She usually has some kind of fun cute and spooky thing in her booth and etsy shop all year round, but the creepy critters really come out in October!   
 
 
Thank you to the commenters who left links so we could find these treasures to show off!
 
Show Me more SPOOKY Things! 
 
For October, to celebrate the spookiest month of the year, please show me some links to handmade beads, pendants, and jewelry components that are scary, spooky, and in the Halloween spirit! Post your links in the comments here and I will select some of your ideas you leave on this post to highlight in another Show Me Sunday post. 
 
Here is what some of our beady friends have to show off this week:

This fab new mag. could not be more exciting. Jean gives just a few of the the reasons why!
