As a maker, just like you, creating and sharing my hand crafted jewelry brings great pleasure especially during the holiday season. I make jewelry all year long with the intention of selling or gifting specific pieces. And, although I'm pretty good at capturing all my pals and loved one's on "the list" I'm always caught with a surprise gift or two from someone I didn't expect - and I have nothing for them! Not only is it awkward, but the scrambling for another present and feeling badly messes with my holiday-zen vibe. So, I came up with a perfect solution and have continued this for years. I make a few simple, easy to please pieces of jewelry for those surprise guests! These earrings fit the bill and are quite fun to make using your bead stash or buying a few beady colors.
