Fa La La Lots of Earrings!
The Jewelry Stringing and Beadwork office is always abuzz with activity. It feels like we always have a million things going on at once. Right now, though, our biggest push is to finalize our newest eBook, Create Christmas Jewelry: 12 Holiday Designs. The other editors and I decided we would make all-new earrings for this collection of projects. We received materials to make the earrings from FusionBeads.com, Artbeads.com, and Beadaholique (thanks, guys!), then got together over the course of a few Friday afternoons to implement our design ideas.

We don't often set aside time to create, so it was fun to sit down together and get to it. For me, it was amazing to see all the different ideas everyone came up with. Debbie created some strung snowman earrings, stamped angel earrings, and painted-filigree wreath earrings. Kate stitched up some cute star and snowflake earrings. And Chloe made some wrapped-wire-and-crystal snowflake earrings, some origami-style star earrings, and some earrings that look like little Christmas light bulbs filled with crystals and holiday greetings. I made some filigree angel earrings, some polymer clay Christmas tree earrings, some resin-filled earrings with holiday-music paper and glitter, and some square-stitched gift-box earrings.
Want to see what we came up with? Here's a sneak peek. You'll have to check back at the BeadingDaily shop in early November to see the rest!
