Hungerford Show Countdown - Pendants

Only three days left until the Hungerford First Friday Christmas show! I say Christmas, but it's really just the December show.

Yesterday I took a picture of some earrings all dressed up and ready for a new home. Today I have a picture of a few of my new pendants. I've made 28 so far -- everything from my new borosilicate swirl pattern, to some classic flower beads and some in basic black.

You'll have to come to the show to see them all - and the work of all my fellow R-Nest members!

Can't wait to see you there. Oh! BTW, mention my blog and you get 10% off anything. Marry Christmas!

Gearing up for First Friday

Most of you know by now that my husband is deployed, and this leaves me with lots of time to create beady goodness this year.

To that end, I've committed to shows that get me motivated to make new jewelry. My next show is this Friday, December 2 at the Hungerford Building (Room 8) from 5 to 9PM. I purchased a new earring display rack on-line and it arrived, larger than I imagined. 24 new pairs of earrings later I've only filled 1/4 of it!

So, back to the torch today to make some borosilicate beads 'cause I like to switch it up.
