Of course another side effect has been me buying lots more art beads from talented individuals that I have discovered through the various jewelry related blogs and Facebook groups that I interact with... so I'm guessing that the net effect on my bead stash has probably left me with more beads and charms than I started with. I suppose that worse things have happened!
This time of year is understandably busy for folks and I'm no exception. Holiday shopping, wrapping and shipping presents, parties, and connecting with friends have all taken precedence over jewelry making the last few weeks. This leaves me one short for this last earring reveal but, all things considered, I'm pretty proud of myself for keeping up otherwise.
So I'll leave you with one last pair of earrings that continues my run of holiday themed resin charms from the last reveal. I had made a pair of subtle spider earrings earlier in the fall (you can seem them in my Etsy shop HERE) and then shared them in the Design Gallery over at Lima Beads (a great online beading supply store with a fabulous community of beaders). From that I got an Etsy conversation that turned into my very first custom order for these earrings!

This will be my last post until after the holidays. I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a blessed New Year! See you all in 2014!
