For this swap you will create 1 Dark Vintage Style Skull Brooch for 1 partner.
Size wise the brooch should be 2-3 inches and MUST incorporate a skull. Think creepy, realistic, anatomical skulls rather than cute and colourful sugar skull ones. Use a skull cameo cabochon, skull beads, skull brass stamping, anatomical skull drawing or skull x-ray image etc. Adorn with dark glass beads, pewter coloured pearls, rhinestones, black crystals, black lace, feathers, gunmetal filigree and such for that dark vintage look.
SWAP REQUIREMENT: If using an image of a skull you MUST make sure that the image is well protected. For example, by covering with a clear cabochon or sealing with a clear glaze such as ''Diamond Glaze'' etc so that the brooch will be durable and withstand everyday wear. You MUST spend time and effort creating a brooch your partner will love to wear. Remember they are a walking gallery for your creation.
As this swap is not partner specific you can start on your brooch before partners are assigned if you like.

Happy Halloween : )
