A Little Glitz

Just wanted to share a few of the things that I've been working on this Christmas.
I haven't been sewing much lately, but I've tinkered around in jewelry again, which I haven't done in quite some time. It was really fun to pick it up again!


This first necklace is for a very special friend and Church family member over in Coeur D'Alene, ID. I've been hoarding all my "special" peachy-pink sparkly beads to make myself something pretty, but since she and I are in the same color season, I thought of her as I was making it, and I couldn't resist sending it to her. I just think the world of her.


The next three are for another special friend. (You met her in this post.) She is one of those rare, special friends who keeps in contact, even when I don't. She always sends sweet gifts for Paige and me, and we really wanted to send her something back this year. I hope she likes them! (And that she's not reading this...haha)






Jewelry making is so fun. It can be an expensive hobby to start, though. Special thanks to my dear sister, who is my bead dealer. ("Dealer" sounds bad..."Sponsor"?)
If you'd like a little more jewelry inspiration, you can see some other things I've made here, here, here and here !

Are you guys making handmade gifts this year?

  8. Very nice! I made a couple of your family stone tree broaches recently (except I used gemstone chips because they were a lot better price when buying a mix of stones). I was going to post them on my blog and then realized my mom might see them before Christmas...anyway, I love your jewelry ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Disney! These are lovely!
    I love seeing other people make gifts for the special people in their lives... I promised myself to hand make half the gifts I give this year.
    And you know? I've saved a fair amount of money and had a great time doing it! There's something about taking time to make a gift that gives me the warm fuzzies. :o)
