Halloween is already in the stores. Pretty soon it will be Christmas. I don't know about you but I'm not ready for Christmas! Just in case you're looking for gift items..... I am offering holiday specials on my jewelry site. http://love2bead.blujay.com I'm hoping I can get rid of some of my inventory. I'm running out of room to display it. I've made 7 new sets of jewelry. I'll add pictures soon. Two weeks ago at our jewelry beading I was crunched for time and only had time to make 2 sets. This past Monday I had more time and made 5 sets. One of the sets is made with peridot fresh water pearls. Simple but very pretty! Awhile back I had purchased glass chips in several different colors. I have since made 4 necklaces but ran out of ideas. Recently I was inspired by Dorene and made up 1 set with the chips. I have more ideas in my mind and can't wait for another lull to put the ideas together.
I have had very limited time for extra activities such as beading. So, when I do have time I try to make the most of it. I'm very excited that I was able to make a Mother's Necklace with my children's names and birthstones and matching earrings. I intended to make a bracelet but as the design evolved I decided to make it a necklace. Bracelet is soon to come. I've also made a butterfly necklace with 2 strands - my, what a challenge that is!!! The 2 strands NEVER lay right!!! I was happy to be done with it and go on to my next project. See this site for my newest pieces. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v629/keren6/?action=view¤t=29f88cdc.pbw
