With its famous colour palette of black, blood red, gooey green, pumpkin orange and deep, dark purple as well as a whole array of creatures, beasts and spooky characters associated to it, Halloween is an amazing source of inspiration for jewellery designs that are a little on the dark side.
In this blog post we feature 8 of our favourite Halloween inspired designs from an array of talented jewellery makers. We had so much fun putting this post together and finding so many creative and inspiring designs. We hope it helps you get your spook on and create something perfect for this time of year.
These designs are in no particular order.
1. Anna Ancell 'Batty' Halloween Pendant
This gorgeous pendant by talented jeweller Anna Ancell is Halloween perfection.
Made with neatly cut shapes from metal sheet and soldered on to a copper disc, the design itself is amazing enough. However we think it is the finish that makes this piece extra special with some nice dark oxidisation and a rough look texture on the copper.

2. Collection 47 - Sterling Silver Skull Studs
We love these cute earstuds from Collection 47 - a simple design yet so effective and the perfect little spooky touch.
3. Shop Crystal Child - Monarch Opal Armband
We are totally mesmerised by this opal armband from Shop Crystal Child. The design itself is so unique and the amazing colours of the opal stand out beautifully against the dark metal.
This armband was electroformed with a thick gauge of copper wire with the addition of some copper chain. All metal has been finished with a dark patina for the perfect gothic touch.

4. LucyLou Designs - Silver Swallow Skull Pendant
We think this amazing silver swallow skull pendant by Lucylou Designs is such a gorgeous design with a real 'hallow' feel.
The pendant is made using a real bird skull and cast with silver! The addition of the blood red garnet bead chain is the perfect combination.

5. Bloody Mary Metal - Crossbones Rings
The iconic Crossbones ring from Bloody Mary Metal is one of our all time favourites.
Whilst an everyday essential for most BMM fans, the crossbones ring would be ideal for anyone looking to add some halloween charm to their outfit this time of year.

6. Moss Root Jewellery - Pumpkin& Skull Stacking Rings
These cute little stacking rings by Cornish brand Moss Root Jewellery have such wonderful handmade charm with a spooky twist.
Each ring is oxidised sterling silver and textured for an imperfect finish. We think this rough, dark finish combined with the charming design is what makes them unique and the perfectly themed halloween accessory.
