Getting Busy for Christmas

I've been busily making stock for all the Christmas Fairs that are coming up. I have 6 between now and Christmas Eve, so you can imagine what my clay table looks like!!

Here are some of the things I have been working on:

Firstly something with no polymer at all! A Bling Ring with 35 Swarovski Crystals - I need to make some more of these, this one sold straight away!

Lots and lots of leafy Bookmarks.

Kaleidoscope Pendant in gorgeous deep purple and white.

Stud Earrings - at last I have figured out a way to make these that is really strong - I always worry that they might break, being so little.

And lastly some lovely ear wires that I got from Ruth and Andy Harrison of A & R Jewellery on Etsy. They are so beautifully made, I added some Mokume Gane Style beads. Simple, to show off the wires!

Are you really busy? I would love to see what you are making for Christmas - leave me a comment so I can come and see!

Have a great week

Wow all your makes are absolutely gorgeous, I love the ring particularly. I would put up some of my makes but after seeing yours I don't think I dare. I like your book marks too. Lorraine xx

Thanks Lorraine - the bookmarks are a favourite of mine too! Please put up some of your makes - I love seeing what other artists are doing - do you have a flickr page?

Thank you so much for commenting Lori - glad you like the ring. Your blog is wonderful - one of my favourite places to visit!
