Holiday Creations

I've been working on a necklace for over a week. It is 6 strands of knots and beads, the shortest strand is 20 inches long and the longest strand is 24 inches long. The beads are shades of purple and mauve. The black thread is metallic and glitters in the light. This necklace is fabulous! I love it!!




I also designed a gorgeous Holiday Bling Necklace for a New Year's Party! This necklace was inspired by a necklace on display at Target.

Holiday Bling Blog Hop II Reveal

I participated in the first Holiday Bling Blog Hop and had an absolute blast! 

This one was a bit more challenging.

My partner for HBBH II was Renetha Stanziano of Lamplight Crafts. She is a very talented lady!! She and I emailed back and forth to get to know each other. However, when crunch time snuck up on me, I was stumped!! Renetha takes a "minimalist approach" to Christmas decorating so she and her family can focus on more important aspects of the Holiday season. She also doesn't wear jewelry, but she loves non-matching earrings. 

I didn't pay close attention to the emails and made a beautiful Christmas ornament:

















However, before I sent the ornament, I re-read her emails and READ them well. So, I gave the ornament to my daughter-in-law. She LOVES it!

I was left with my dilemma - what do I send Renetha. I thought and thought. Then I realized I should send her some gorgeous lampwork beads - made by ME! And some non-matching earrings! I also threw in a couple of really awesome leaf links.  

Now - what I received from Renetha was Stunning to say the least! I am in love with my new piece of jewelry! (BTW - I had a variation of this necklace pinned on my Pinterest)





Thanks to Marlene Cupo and Shelley Graham Turner for once again hosting a fun blog hop!
