Handmade gifts for the beaders/sewers in your life!

So I was cruising around Etsy a couple of days ago and saw an intriguing thing on one of the many treasuries I checked out - a needle threader incorporated into a very cute polymer clay chocolate covered strawberry. This is available in LoveLaurie's Etsy store. She also has a cute little combo combining a seam ripper and needle threader all stored inside a thread spool! A cupcake combo is available now, and in her past sales I found a cute teapot! I just love the folks who turn a common tool into something so creative and fun! I liked it so much I had to get my own custom order for a Secret Santa swap I'm doing. Can't wait to see what my swap partner thinks about it!

Emeralds and Pearls - Yummy!

I got a strand of GORGEOUS keishi pearls and they had a subtle green tint which immediately made me think of emeralds. I had to change my design some when the holes in the emeralds ended up being too small for larger wires. But I came up with an alternate design which looks pretty good! Check it out for yourself ...

This beauty is for sale in my Etsy shop if you want more information. - well it's actually heading to a home show this weekend so it's unlisted right now. If it doesn't sell then I'll relist in my Etsy store.

And, since it is the Christmas season I just finished up a fun and full Christmas Twist bracelet ...

Isn't it fun!
