Beadbloggers and a photo of a Blythe by jean wearing jewelry by jean

What is more appropriate for this time of year than a vampire Blythe? Here is beautiful Myth, a custom Blythe vampire with teal alpaca hair. She is wearing an elegant skulls and roses dress by Pollymakes(Polly on Etsy) and hand made slippers by Princess Sara. I made the earrings just for this outfit, for her. They are regular size and can be worn by me as well: "All locked up" earrings, with cool ceramic components by Melanie of Earthenwood Studio, gunmetal links, and Swarovski rounds in Siam red.--jean
