I guess I am thinking Christmas - I am doing a craft show this weekend and figure maybe a nice Holiday selection might sell. This is a double spiral rope on a base of size 6 green beads - the spirals are what else - red, green and white. This bracelet is in my Etsy Shop here.

I just finished this bead embroidery pendant and spiral rope necklace. The center is a gold button that I have had for a LONG time - I am thinking 40 years or more. It is surrounded by 4mm black and gold beads and there is black and gold fringe. The necklace is a spiral rope with a black size 8 seed bead as the core and gold and black size 11 seed beads as the spiral. It has a hand made loop and toggle closure. The necklace is 17 inches in length plus the closure. The pendant is 3 1/2 inches in length with the fringe and 1 3/4 inches in width. I have named this necklace Lady Macbeth - it is very dramatic. I will be adding it to my Etsy shop later tonight.

Like I have posted before I am busy making items for a craft show this month. I am making a few holiday earrings - they are fun and fast to make and will make a nice gift. I have also listed them in my Etsy Shop until the show later this month. I am thinking snowmen will be next.

This is a new fringed bracelet I just finished. It reminded me of Christmas especially the second photo - it looks like a wreath. It is made up of many many beads in lime green, green, yellow and red accents. I named it "Holly" and it is my Etsy Shop here.

This is a fringe beaded bracelet called "Solstice". This one is made up of silver seed beads size 6 and 11. It has many layers of fringe made up of different sizes of white, pearl, black and topaz beads. It has a handmade beaded toggle and a crystal flower closure. This bracelet will fit a wrist size 7 to 7 1/4 inches. This bracelet is very elegant and would look wonderful with that little black dress.
I am busy making pieces for an upcoming craft show - I like this bracelet a lot and love the way it looks and feels on the wrist - I am making another one in lime green. This bracelet is in my Etsy Shop here.
