New Collection of Scissor Fobs

Do you "run with scissors"? Maybe you need a gift idea for your friend who is a quilter or enjoys sewing.

I've recently designed a collection of scissor fobs that are now available in my Etsy Shop here.

Some with Cherries, some with Cottage Roses, and some with Fried Egg Poppy flowers.

Some that are Heart shaped with extra fancy Heart closures.

If you have no scissors to adorn with a fob you could attach it to a handbag as a purse charm.

Another idea would be to add them as a zipper pull to your favorite hoodie jacket or your Yoga bag.

Each one hand beaded with Artisan crafted lampwork glass focal beads and assorted glass accent beads.

I'm sure there are are uses for these little cuties that I haven't even thought of.  If you think of one leave me a comment to share your idea.

 Thanks for stopping by to take a look...

New Seed Bead Hoop Earrings

I've recently added a few new designs of seed beaded hoop earrings to my shops.  This first pair has a somewhat "Tribal" look to them.  I love just being able to pick up a random bead and not having to really follow a pattern...just a selection of colors.  This pair can be found on my website here for $32.  Feel free to click the photo to get that "OMG! that's huge view".

This pair has a Southwest feel to them.  I've hand beaded these hoop earrings with various sizes of glass seed beads in Silver and Turquoise Blue. They're an attention getting pair created with 100's of glass seed beads.  You'll find them in my shop here for $34.

Finally, this last pair, while similar to the first design, have a more pronounced checkerboard look and make me think of them as being more of a Bohemian design.  All of these earrings are lightweight and one of a kind designs.  This pair can, also, be found in my shop here for $36.

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Halloween Seed Beaded Hoop Earrings

Pumpkin Spice everything is out now so that means it's time to think about Autumn earrings...right? I've just added a couple of hand stitched beaded Fall earrings to my Etsy shop for a "treat".  This first pair has been created using a brick stitch to make the cute little Candy Corn designs in yellow, orange, and white on a black background.

With this second pair I've used Fall colors to create another unique pair of seed beaded hoop earrings that can be worn all throughout the Autumn season.  Both pairs are available in my shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by...
