Blue winter beaded earrings

Hello and Marry Christmas for all of you!

I hope you spent a nice Christmas time and you found many presents under the Christmas tree.

This year our tree is tall and thin, so we called it the “little ballerina” as those who are dancing on a music box. Usually our Christmas tree were rich in lower branches and looked old and impressive. This one looks young and “fresh” and dynamic. It brings a new feeling, something new, although this is an old tradition this time it happened something different, like  a “young generation” is leading the holiday .

I am admiring it shinning from its little lights clock and it really seems a new beginning, an announcement for the New Year Eve.

Inspired by its brightness I beaded a delicate earrings pair, a winter jewelry for the New Year Eve celebration.

Have a good time!

What material suits Christmas party?

I like to dress in a special way waiting for Santa. All the 24th December is a long running day but in the afternoon the miracle is going to happen. We decorate the house and the Christmas tree and add the presents under it. It is so childish and beautiful how we add one more present when the other are not there. Before midnight under the tree is full of presents and the happiness light us. It’s time to “decorate” ourselves for the tree party. How are you going to dress yourself in the Christmas day?

Bright sun earrings

When I bought these acrylic cabochons I was attracted by their shinny sunset brilliance. I encased them in a beaded work inspired by Sarubbest work. Order in any colors you want. There is a pendant for a set.

4 hours work.

Materials used: Miyuki seed beads, golden plated earrings findings, acrylic cabochons.
