I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time, while enjoying the Autumn season. I hope this blog post adds a smile to your day!
In today’s blog post, I am sharing a look at another Halloween themed bracelet. This bracelet is primarily Ogerbeads, but has a spooky touch of Corner 35. I really love how this bracelet design turned out, but I do have a sad story: I lost this bracelet just over a week ago. But more on that later!
If you would like to see what beads and bangle I used to create this design…make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let’s get started!
This post contains gifted items.
The first three beads I have to share with you are some of my favourite Murano glass beads from Ogerbeads. As my centrepiece bead, I have Snowdust Confetti. I love the dotted details and golden sparkle. It reminds me of a cold Halloween Night! Snowdust Confetti is included in the 3=2 promotion from Ogerbeads.
Further spread out from Snowdust Confetti, I have two Snowdust Baroque Festival beads. Both the small core and retiring universal core (3=2 deal) size options are on sale. I love the golden swirls on this bead. It adds a hint of magic and chilling breeze!
The Bewitched bead is part of Ogerbeads 5PlusDeal (receive a 6th bead free when you order 5). It has so many “spooktacular” details including a menacing grin, witches hat, cobwebs and a spider.
I love designer Wendy’s description of him:
It looks like a ghost and it acts like one. But if you look closely, you can see his tiny feet sticking out! His arms are ready to grab and terrify you. Aren’t you scared?– Wendy Verkooijen
Isn’t he so cute and fun? Those feet on the bottom are so adorable!
This sterling silver bead is compatible with all major interchangeable bracelet systems.
For bangle stoppers, I added two Black Widow Stoppers from Ogerbeads, also included in the 5PlusDeal.
As mentioned earlier, I lost this bangle bracelet just over a week ago. I was out for the entire day. It was when I got home that night, that I realized the bracelet was missing. I was shocked and heartbroken!
The next day, I tried to retrace my steps. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful at finding it.
How did I manage to loose it? I believe the bangle fell off my wrist on my morning walk with my miniature poodle, Ella. I usually put the handle part of her leash, on my wrist. I hold the rest of the leash in my hand.
Since this bangle is quite flexible, I am confident that part pulled onto the open bangle design (as Ella pulled on the leash) and that expanded it. It would only be a matter of minutes before it would fall off. And since I was already wearing an additional bracelet and had the leash on my wrist, I did not notice it falling.
As some of you know, it is so heartbreaking when you loose a jewellery item, but I like to think that someone found it, who needed a smile in their day. It makes me happy to think someone is wearing it and loving it. And the silver lining is that these beads are currently still available. I will be able to replace them, over time.
I will need to be more cautious with open bangle designs, moving forward. I won’t be wearing them on walks with Ella, that is for sure! It was a good lesson learned.
Have you ever lost a bracelet or jewellery piece? Were you able to find it?
And that concludes today’s blog post! If you would like to see my other Halloween bracelet designs, I have Youtube videos of my Pandora Halloween Bracelet, as well as my OHM Beads Halloween Bracelet.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.

I have an exciting Ogerbeads announcement to share! If you are like me, I have long awaited a new charm bracelet from Ogerbeads. That day is finally here! Ogerbeads is proud to announce their first bangle: the Peacock Bangle. It is inspired by the last name of the designer: Evelien Pauw.

The Peacock Bangle:
The Ogerbeads Peacock bangle is available in 5 different sizes: XXS, XS, S, M, and L. It is sterling silver and it retails for € 75.
It officially releases today, Friday July 31st, 2020 at 2:00 PM EST, 20:00 Amsterdam time.
The bangle features beautiful peacock feather detailing with tiny little hearts. It is an oval shape and is similar to the Trollbeads bangle in-terms of sizing and shape.
The Vanity Stopper
With the launch of the Peacock bangle, Ogerbeads is also releasing a new stopper: The Vanity Stopper.
The sterling silver Vanity Stopper is also peacock inspired and designed perfectly for the bangle. It has beautiful feather-like detailing with hearts, as well.
The Vanity Stopper is designed to keep your Ogerbeads bangle design stationary and prevent beads/charms from falling off. Each stopper has silicone inside, that allows you to slide the stopper on and off the bangle, when needed.
The new Vanity Stopper retails for € 32.
The True Colors Charm
Also launching, along with the Peacock bangle and Vanity Stopper is the beautiful new charm: True Colors. It is a sterling silver charm that perfectly matches the new bangle and stopper.
Beauty reflects from the inside when you show your true colors. Be proud of who you are!– Ogerbeads
The True Colors charm features peacock inspired feathers and heart detailing. The True Colors charm retails for € 37.
