Well, Halloween is nearly upon us.  If you're really not into the full blown costume thing, consider discrete beaded skull earrings. You will still be able to join in the fun. Here are 3 tutorials to consider. Reader and Nova Scotian designer, Debra Schwartz of DatzKatz Designs, contacted me to share this clever Skulla Rulla earrings tutorial which takes advantage of different types of beads.  You can download and print the tutorial from SlideShare.  Debra also has a Craftsy site.

Got more time?  Then the all peyote skull earrings tutorial  from Bead Jewelry Making is for you!

Chris Franchetti Michaels has a simple circular peyote skull earrings tutorial over on About Beadwork.  She designed it for Dia De Los Muertos but it is also perfect for Halloween.  One of the loveliest skull beads is the pricey Swarovski crystal ones available from a number of suppliers if you are able to splurge!

UPDATE : The above earrings tutorial on Beadwork is no longer available. Check out this alternative Frida Kahlo inspired one by Abbi Berta. This is for a pendant but you can also scale down the supplies for earrings.
