My latest earrings - in Christmas colors - gold, green and red. I don't know what got into me with all this earring making - I guess I am trying to use up my earring hooks. I am in the process of making snowmen next and they are looking just too cute. I really need to get back to a freeform peyote necklace that I started awhile back I would like to finish it.

Well here are my latest - Santa Earrings. I finished them last night and took the photo today and it was not easy - it is raining and dark but better than snow!! These are in brick stitch and measure 2 1/2 inches including the fringe and I love his little cute face!!

So here are my Christmas Tree earrings. I really love them. The problem is with the photo the red beads show up as red on the edges but in the tree they photoed dark - interesting. I am making Santa earrings now but maybe I will make another pair of these, they are such fun. I guess you could pair a tree with a Santa - my earrings never match I am such a rebel.

I am getting a little lax in my blogging. I was coming here to post my newest earrings and see I never posted the finished bead embroidery collar. So here it is Rhythm of the Night - the focal is a picasso jasper. This took quite a long time to complete because I lost focus and was doing other stuff. I took a look and decided it was worth finishing. I guess I will post the earrings tomorrow.

So I have the all of the surface beading done on my newest collar. I need to bead along the edges. Next comes the fringe - I find fringe so tedious. First I need to decide how much and what kind of fringe I want to add. Then I need to sit down and DO it. Maybe some elves will come in tonight and finish for me - but probably not! I am still not in love with this one ; (
