Sneak Preview of Black Friday

I don't mind admitting -- I'm flat out exhausted. 

I've been working and working and working preparing for two December shows, making lots of custom orders, sending out postcards, working on beading challenges, trying to finish Christmas shopping, all while battling the return of my neurologically despicable headaches.  The return of the migraines and color blindness has shortened my work time dramatically.

However, I've been able to make a few things and wanted to preview them here, get your opinion, and offer them for sale first to my faithful blog readers.  You guys just blow me away.  I don't take you for granted.  At ALL.  


So here's some eye candy, and you can email me if you want to snag anything before Black Friday, and in the meantime, I'll be catching up on reading your blogs!

(Thank you for being here, and continuing to read even when I have nothing witty to say.)

Rare rainbow calsilica, red jasper, and Thai silver necklace, $120 (on sale for $108).

Handmade frosted glass and handmade aluminum chain, $150 (on sale for $135).


Handmade lampwork glass bracelet, $80 (on sale for $72).

  1. Are you having crazy weather, we have been dumped with a ton of snow and temperatures are -21C. I love all three designs, the rainbow calsilica is so pretty. I hope you feel better soon.

  6. They are all fabulous but my favorite is the Thai silver necklace. Maybe a "day off" from beading and everything else would help your headaches. Sure sorry they're getting in the way of life right now.
