Sally Russick


Add a little sparkle to your holiday season with this lovely handcrafted icicle ornament . Composed of a Swarovski briolette pendant,  Black Diamond AB Swarovski briolette beads, semi precious gemstones and Bali silver components. The wire is 20ga black annealed steel and I finished the design with a delicate white ribbon tied in a neat bow.
Value  $15




Sandi Volpe




Sandi Volpe, Handcrafted Jewelry is proud to offer a selection of beads including lampwork and enamel and recycled sari silk as a prize for the Virtual Craft Show.
 I will also be offering a 15% discount in my Etsy shop for the duration of the virtual craft show as well as a second prize of a $25 gift certificate to use in my shop for those that make a purchase during the show or comment on my blog.


Value $25







Susan Lloyd


Handmade earrings created with antique brass rings  hammered out flat and smooth, dangling from Turquoise gemstones.   What's not to love?

Length, 1" from ear wire.

Use code ‘bandit’ to get 15% off any purchase during the show.

Value $12




Mallory Hoffman


Heartfelt key pedant with nylon cord

I made this heart on a key using a special silver glass called Blue Chalcedony.  It struck the color as I manipulated the glass in the flame  I rolled the glass in frit (ground glass) and added my handmade murrini (flower like decorations).  I annealed the key pendant in my kiln so it should be good to wear for a long time.  The key pendant, with the bead, is about 2 inches in length.  You can use the nylon cord, which you can tie, to show off your new pendant or you can add your own chain or, maybe, a kumihimo cord.  I hope you enjoy your new pendant!

Value $30




Kim Ballor


 This set of five lampwork beads are made by me and were featured in Bead Unique Magazine. The holes run horizontally across the top, so the beads hang like flags. Each bead has a "Dolly Parton" heart on the front.

Sizes of the 5 beads in the set: 15 x 21mm, 20 x 20mm (2),18 x 18mm,15 x 15mm

Value: $20.00



Jelveh Jaferian


I made this bead a few weeks ago and love it lots!  It's made with two different shades of silver-laden glass and then textured and encased, and finally, I added end caps.  It would make an incredible focal bead!  Size: 43 mm x 14 mm

Value: $30

20% off with code HOLIDAY20





Wendy Blum

1) Earrings:  Sea Tempest


Wendy's beautiful boro lampwork glass earrings made Swarovski crystals, Czech glass, and copper findings. Value, $30
