Heartfelt Request

This set of ornaments was a custom request, a gentleman wanted them as a Christmas gift for his wife.
He wanted them to mark their first apartment, their home, and their wedding date.

I thought that it was a very special request, and one that was very heartfelt.
This has to be my favorite order yet.
He was very thankful for me completing his request and happy with the outcome.

Thanks for looking!

Braided Seed Bead Necklace

Seed beads, when used creatively, can make beautiful jewelry.
Here is a necklace that I made as a Christmas gift.

I strung three strands each of white seed beads, silver/grey, and clear.
I took these strands and braided them together, making a slightly chunky necklace.
I then took a silver chain and hooked it onto each end.
The necklace was long enough that I didn't even have to attach a clasp!

Thank you for looking!
