Show Me Sunday

  One of my favorite spooky trends lately is the sugar skull image.  I love the mix of sweetness and creepiness, life and death imagery, with skulls and flowers in candy like colors.  This bead, part of a series of sugar skull lampwork beads by Linda Lawrence of Bella Bead Jewelry, is a great example of a colorful sugar skull bead.  Check out her Etsy shop to see more of her work.
Thank you to the commenters who left links so we could find these treasures to show off!
Show Me Harvest Beads! 
For November, we want to showcase beads, pendants, and components that remind us of the autumn harvest.  Let's see a cornucopia of fall colors, autumnal fruits and veggies and leaves, and a buffet of yummy visual treats to celebrate the change of season. Post your links in the comments here and I will select some of your ideas you leave on this post to highlight in another Show Me Sunday post. 
Here is what some of our beady friends have to show off this week:
