Ring in the New Year with Some New Bling!

Merry Christmas from all of us at Beadwork!

Now that my holiday shopping is complete and all my gifts have been made and given, I have time to focus on myself again—and just in time for all the New Year’s parties! This year I’m thinking that I want to make something stunning to really knock everyone’s socks off. . . and what better way to enjoy New Year’s than by adding a little more sparkle to my wardrobe?

I’ve been looking through 10 Party Perfect Projects, and I think I’m going to make Cristie Prince’s Tudor Earrings. They’re just the right amount of glitz, and I think I can make a pair in time for New Year’s Eve! I also love how they look like beaded beads! I think they’ll be a real conversation starter.

If I have time, I may also make one of Susan Schwartzenberger’s Dancing Duos Bracelets. SuperDuos are so fun to work with, and there’s something I find very relaxing about working a simple, repetitive pattern. I can stitch the bracelet while also spending time with my family. This bracelet will be versatile—I can wear it with a more formal outfit, rotate it into my work wardrobe, or dress it down for a fun and informal weekend look.

Do you want to join me in making some fabulous jewelry to wear as we ring in the new year? If you do, 10 Party Perfect Projects is just what you need! This ebook contains 10 of our favorite earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that are sure to be showstoppers at any party for years to come! There are projects for beaders of any level, including a few that will work up quickly for any last-minute party or gifting emergencies. So treat yourself, and find something decadent to make and wear for New Year’s Eve!


Happy New Year!
