I hope You All had a wonderful Christmas. We certainly did. Paul and I had one day off, the 25th together and we spent it organizing our apartment. This is a very decadent and luxurious activity for us, because normally we both have many better things to do and no time for such. So we just hung out, ate tasty Christmas food and got some long overdue organizing done.
Thanks to that, I now have more space to live in and bead on.
What I did not do for a couple of days was beading. So all these little goodies were mostly finished before Christmas.
I just did not have the time to take pictures of them and list them on Etsy till last night.
Aren't they fun? And such an easy way to use stone/glass orphans.
You know, the one that's left behind after a project, that you just don't know what to do with?
Make a ring!
They all have their own little ringy personalities. This is Galaxia , like Woody Harrelson's character from Anger Management. Such a funny movie, and he made me laugh so hard!
Of course the boro glass in the movie looks like a tiny galaxy, but it's a lot more fun to call it Galaxia.
Then this little lucite centered piece reminded me of my bridal bouquet that I made with green chrysanthemums and green spider mums.
This one is all about ice.
I think it was about this point in the photo shoot that I realized that my hands are not only dry and full of ever present weird cuts and scrapes ( I swear I got some fairy with a tiny sword cutting me up every night, because I have no idea how these even get there), but my fingers are crooked too. (That, I can't blame on the Little People. They were always crooked.)
I guess I could use a hand model. If only Samantha did not have webbed feet, her precious brown fingers would look very good with rings on. She has got the longest, most beautifulest wonderfulest doggie toes.
This above piece is named after the Mourning Dove. It does not make a peep, but it's a lovely shade of soft grey.
Then of course here is something very pink.Very, very pink.
Kind of fun isn't it?
Kind of fun isn't it?
Since I have ran out ring blanks now I am off to something different.
It's about time to start my challenge entry for my own challenge, "Illuminated by Candle Light".
Just a reminder if you feel like participating, make anything, send me two pictures of it by Jan 17th (my birthday) and I will post the entries right here.
