Halloween is the best time of year to live out your inner dreams of being someone else-maybe it’s President Obama, your favorite Twilight star, a Devil or Angel. While my years as Cleopatra and a Belly Dancer are over, I can still wear jewelry that screams Halloween.

Jennifer Fisher is best known for her collection of personalized fine gold jewelry, but has recently started designing a line of very cool brass baubles. I am particularly interested in her Skull Necklaces and Spider Cuff.
