Superstition Blog Hop

Today is Friday the 13th.  Tammy Adams from Paisley Lizard set this blog hop up, made a whole slew of polymer clay pendants and shared them with a group of jewellery artists.  What a sweetie.
It is now our mission to make something in keeping with superstitions and to share it on our own blogs as part of this Superstition  Hop
Now a lot of people fear the number 13, and especially as a date when it lands on a Friday.

 I'm NOT one of them . I have always had very LUCKY Friday 13th's.  In fact it's often one of my luckiest days, a day when things always seem to go right.

Some folks don't like black cats. Again I'm NOT one of them, I LOVE black cats, and have shared my home(s) with them since childhood.

Ladders ? Don't walk under them something bad will befall you!
Mirrors ? Don't break one or 7 years of bad luck will come to you!
Spill salt ? throw some more over your shoulder!
Step on a crack ? you'll break your mothers back.!

superstitions abound. which ones do YOU believe in.?

I acknowledge superstitions and follow them out of habit and perhaps a secret fear that they ARE TRUE. The one I am most careful to avoid is "don't walk under a ladder. " Not sure if it's a superstition or a safety thing, I just don't want it falling on me.lol.  Maybe it's my fear of heights. What ever the reason I decided to incorporate a ladder into my design along with my black cat pendant. And I have yet to break a mirror (thank goodness) .

How many superstitions do YOU see in this piece? 



(Hint: the numbers 13 and 7 figure in the construction-13 rolo chain links form the ladder-7 crystals form the rungs; there is  mirrored gem at the bottom; a "ladder" suspension system; black mirrored crystals; black cat polymer clay pendant -handmade by Rachel Adams- Paisley Lizard.)

I do wish the photo showed the sparkle of the crystals better, it's quite bling-y in person  

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my corner of the blogesphere. Please hop on by the other participants blogs to see what they came up with.

  7. That old Stevie Wonder song, Very Superstitious popped right into my head as soon as I saw your piece! I started counting the superstitions I saw. I almost got them all. Great fun! (and I'm still humming that song)

  8. I love the ladder effect you've added to Tammy's lucky black cat bead and the mirror crystal dangle. I did not pick up on the other superstitions, but it's clever that they are tucked in there!
