September Component of the Month – September Reveal…Zombees!

It’s the end of September already – how on earth did that happen…wasn’t it just Christmas a few weeks ago? Anyway, on the positive side this month we got to play with o e of these cute little lampwork Zombees by Laney Mead…like normal bees but a it green around the gills as you can see.

I’m not usually one for designing for holidays or events but since Laney gave us such a whimsical little fellow and halloween is drawing nearer I thought maybe I should give it a go. I had a rummage around my bead stash to see if I had anything suitable and managed to dig up a few things: black polymer clay roses by Leah Curtis, orange pumpkin beads, some leaves that match the beads and one of my own skull buttons…about as spooky as I could find.

A bracelet seemed like the obvious way to go with this and I’ve kept it fairly simple so as not to overpower my little bee who appears to have been spending time in the pumpkin patch killing off the roses that have rambled their way into it…seems like they could do with a good dose of bone meal!

The bracelet is simply strung on beading wire with brass accent beads and finished with the skull button and a beaded loop.



This was a fun project to work on so many thanks to Laney for the opportunity  and I hope you’ll join in with our blog hop to see what everyone else has made using the links below.

  1. I really really REALLY wanted to use the skull cab I have from you but of course I left myself with not enough time to bead around it!! Love your bracelet, now that is something I would definitely wear 😀

  2. I love this color palette! For some reason I couldn’t get a contrasting color to work with me this time, so I’m really impressed that you found just the right coral-red to make it work.
