Christmas Present – Beaded Jewelry


Posted on Jan 4, 2008

I made the above necklace for my cousin in Toronto.  I’m really pleased with this.  The Turquoise beads in the middle and the tiny shell beads in between came from my Grandmother’s jewelry.  While not my cousin’s Grandmother, she was part of my life and my cousin grew up hearing stories about this amazing women.  The other beads that make up the majority of the necklace are wood. This necklace is...

Finally!  I finally get to share the Christmas presents that I made this year.   I plan on dragging this out as long as humanly possible because I’m pretty proud of all that I made.  Besides, isn’t the very nature of a blog to share yourself with the world?  Well, settle in and get comfortable it’s going to be a long ride.  I embroidered the tie above for my cousin in Toronto.  I...

Yesterday was the first day of the Rebel Rabbit craft fair.  Diana and I went to check it out.  We will have a table next weekend at Rebel Rabbit.  We are so excited to be in this great craft fair again.  We had such a great time when we did this in August.  Yesterday’s sale was packed which was great to see.  I also picked up 3 Christmas presents which totally rocked.
