Who's a snow bunny ??? - 
YOU'RE A SNOW BUNNY!!!





So my bead buddy, Martha, snagged these from me... :D 





Squeeee, this was a blast!  I learn something new every time I leave my comfort zone!   This time I learned, I adore enormous fluff-ball earrings!!!  Since my girlfriend grabbed these, I'll be making another pair for myself!


Wishing you all the most wonderful holiday season!

Art Bead Scene 7th Annual Ornament Hop!



ABS Ornament Hop!





Art beads by:  Hen by Gina Guardalabene of White Swan Illuminations; Mushroom, snowflake and pink stripe focals by, Gaea Handmade; Large green & red stripe is African.





Pulling the supplies!



  The no-sew velvet mushroom

I had some amazing French, antique, velvet ribbon that I had been saving for a while.  It was made in the 1930's and is really special to me...yum, that color!  I wire wrapped and added ab faceted crystals to secure it to the over-sized jump-rings.






An ornament or a GINORMOUS earring?!!  Oh, I'm so tempted to try it on but it would surley stretch my ear with that 18g wire!




One French Hen?





It was always a tradition in my family to make ornaments on Thanksgiving, but, as the years passed, we stopped.  This year however, that's exactly what I did!  It felt wonderful!




Wishing you all a warm and special holiday season!

Merry Christmas!
