Earrings, Earrings, Earrings....Midnight Magic Revealed!

It's that time again! Andrew Thornton put together a special Halloween edition design kit called Midnight Magic...on 13 magical kits available and today is the big reveal! Here is a picture of the goodies we received.

and as with every kit...Andrew included a wonderful mystery component.

I had a lot of inspired ideas for this kit but I have several irons in the fire right now so to speak so I didn't get as much completed as I hoped for...but in an unusual turn for me it's all earrings this time! I only used beads and bead caps from the kit. The only additions I made are copper wire, brass wire and Vintaj findings for each pair. This first pair is VERY long at about 4.5 inches.

I love the way the copper in this pairs gives them a fall caramel apple feel...I love caramel apples at Halloween!

and this last pair another warm autumn feel...

So that's it for me this time. Andrew is working on a gallery set up today so it will be later this evening before his post is up with a complete list of participants. Please visit the links below to see what everyone created. Have a safe and happy Halloween! ~Kari

  1. Many thanks for participating! These earrings are great! It's fun, because you're not the only one who did only earrings this time. There must be something in the water! Great job! I love all the textures and lovely autumnal palettes! Keep up the good work!

  2. Happy Halloween! My fav are the caramel apple ones, lovely, great job!

  3. Awesome! I bet the long ones are stunners when they are on...

  4. This kit really lent itself to earrings. I really like that first pair even though I have this short little well. I can dream of being tall and stately.

  5. Your designs really capture the feel of warmth in Autumn! I love the shoulder dusters. Very fun!! The second pair also remind me of caramel apples...YUM! I also love the last pair...I think they remind me of Harvest Moons! Great ideas all around :D

  6. Love all your earrings. I missed out on this kit, so it is super fun to see what people made. I think it's a fun grouping of beads and you've done lovely things!
