Love Betsey Johnson Halloween Jewelry

Betsey Johnson’s Halloween jewelry probably not really specifically for Halloween.  But every year as the holiday approaches I am drawn to the glitzy girly skulls, spiders, skeletons, and black kitties.  They are always encrusted with killer jewels and are sure to get attention.
