New Beads

Posting beads on Etsy all day. It's been long over due. I wish there was a way to do it faster. I was chosen to be part of the 12 days of christmas on Lorelei's blog. Starting on christmas Day we open one gift and blog about it. I handmade everything mostly in glass but some metal and one ceramic piece. I tried hard to match my gifts to the receivers with something they would like. Lorelei gift I had to go out side the box as she is the master of Jewelry Designing. All my gifts were mailed today.
   Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends.
