Now that all the presents have been delivered, Santa can take this opportunity to share with the rest of the world all of the toys that came out of the workshop.
This year jewelry seemed to be the order of the day. I had started out several months ago turning large spheres and I gradually moved smaller and smaller. At some point I started making beads and then Bryan asked me if I had ever used magnetic beads. That’s when Christmas really started to come together.
I also started making smaller versions of the Christmas lights from a few years back. These smaller versions would become necklaces and earrings.
Kim’s mom doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry, but I found a really nifty plan for a small Victorian end table that seemed to really appeal to the needs of a fellow bookworm.
I had a great time making things and it was all very well received. Take a look and let me know what you think.
