What to Wear

Today is the LAST DAY of my Thanksgiving Sale and I thought I'd put together a great Christmas Gift Idea post for those of you wanting to get all your presents from independent artists.

First up, my Turquoise and Cinnabar Pendant with this Andalusia cardigan from BrightStreet. All their cardigans are upcycled and embellished. All you'd need is a bright red top underneath.

Wouldn't this Cygnet Grey Cashmere Scarf by Amanda Sainsbury look stunning wrapped around your neck with a Stormy Night Embroidered Brooch. Perfect for a very dark, blustery, winter night.

  Around here, it's still Autumn, and this Autumn Stretch Sweater from Ullvuna leaves just enough wrist for a bright Pumpkin Patch Beadwoven Bracelet.

Last but not least, my Rusty Autumn Brooch adds a touch of sophistication to this already so sophisticated  Rust Spice Shoulder Warmer by Phydeaux.

I know yesterday that I promised a couple of new things for the shop at the sale price, and I did create a couple, but the second thing I created ended up all wonky and I didn't like it, so I'm just listing this. I call it Fallen Leaves.

I'm not sure why I've gotten into making more dainty and elegant pieces of jewelry, but so be it. It's probably just a kick, so enjoy it while it lasts! I'm sure in a couple of months, I'll come up with a way to create big gigantic necklaces that will cause back issues when I'm older.

Okay, two things....
1. This is the LAST DAY for the sale! At midnight tonight, I'll return all the prices back to what they were and it'll be gone! Also, free domestic shipping on everything! Oh, and tutorials are on sale also, which for you beadweavers is an excellent way to save a TON on Christmas presents. I'm making necklaces for my sisters and went out and bought the stones yesterday. $5. I spent $5 on Christmas presents!
2. Today is also the LAST DAY to enter my giveaway. Visit this blog entry and add your name to the list! I'll draw a winner tonight!

Enjoy your Tuesday!
