This month's challenge theme at beadswap-usa.com is Pirate in honour of Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th.
This was too much fun to pass up. As I thought about it I pictured reds, blacks and metals. This is what I came up with - a necklace and a pair of earrings.
I'm working on another set of earrings as well - an idea in polymer clay that may or may not work out since it's my first foray into this medium, but I'll post a picture either way when it's done. Until then, aaaaaaaaar matey!
