turn out quite pretty. I'll continue working on
more of these.
I was trying to complete a Holiday Star pendant. This project, printed in the latest issue of Bead & Button Magazine, intrigued me. I rarely do other people's projects, but I liked the look of it and was hoping that it might make a nice holiday gift for some of my friends. It is neither as easy or fast as the magazine text promised, but I did succeed and it is quite pretty. It takes about eight hours to make one from start to finish, so I won't be making this for many people. There are a few, however, who probably do deserve something pretty and sparkling for their Solstice gifts.
Now I have to get working on my E-newsletter for the shop. We are going to be running some very substantial sales for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday next week, and I have to have the copy pounded out and proofread by the end of the week. <sigh> I really have to get into the holiday groove, and I'm just not focused.....
