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.
