Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
Send Erin an e-mail with your address and she will get it right out to you.
This week we visit the studio of Melanie Brooks of Earthenwood Studio
October may just be my favorite month. I love the change of the weather, as long as I can avoid the annual autumn colds. But even more than the changing of the leaves and the cooler weather, I love the spooky season of Halloween! The pumpkins, monsters, candy, and of course the skulls and skeletons... It all appeals to my inner kid.
Lately in my studio, I have been making some fun Halloween inspired jewelry to show off some of my spooky art pendants, like the gothy necklace above. Some black chain, blood red teardrop beads, a creepy old key, and a little clock detail (to remind you that your time may be up soon!) all coordinate together with my Skullie pendant and the pewter skull from Green Girl studio.
This week, I have one Skully pendant to give away. Leave a comment on this post and tell me about the this you love best about Halloween (or October). One random winner will chosen next week from the comments.
