My husband and I have several family members who were born in December and January. Then there are friends whose birthdays also fall in the months of December and January. Makes life interesting. A couple of us were born on December 24th and December 26th. One of our nephews was born January 1st. We're just a holiday-loving group I can tell you!
Anyway, I figured I better knock out some birthday gifts for the females of the group!
Yes, the beads were made by Terri Stone at TLSClayDesign.
As were the pair on the left.And then there was the little girls who are old enough to wear earrings.
And these as well...did I mention I had two cases of Terri's beads?
Naturally, I had to make a pair or two for their mother.I finally found the beads I wanted to use for the Dramatic Tones set, which meant a bracelet was needed to be made. I love red and black together. Mix it with a bit of silver and we have drama in a good way, folks! :D
This clay shield and beads were designed by Linda at NKDesigns.I also found the ribbon to do a ribbon necklace for someone who's special to me in a unique way. I can't say who because she may be reading my blog. I've been holding onto this set, trying to figure out how to make an ensemble as pretty as these wonderful creations. A few days back I was commenting on LanyardLady's blog and noticed an unusual design. I finished my comments and went back to see what it was I saw. It was a tutorial on how to make a ribbon necklace from 2 Good Claymates. Viola! We were in business. I think this set came out very pretty.
I'm off to finish baking. I'm nearly out of flour...and Semilla's--our local health foods store was dry after our last load. I'm hoping they will be back in stock by Monday!
What are you doing this last weekend before Christmas and on this last night of Hanukkah?
