I love these!

These beads are called Desert Canyon and they are in my etsy store right now. I think they'd make a great bracelet, but they would be good for earrings (smaller size) and additions to a necklace. I really love them! They are made by that swirly technique that Val Cox popularized in her book. She makes the most awesome beads and frit blends. This frit, however, is from Candace at Bead Goodies. It just so happens that Candace was also a target of the whacko u-boat. So I'm giving you a link to her web site so you can go give her some love, too!

Sue, Those beads are very pretty, great for the fall weather to come soon. Val's book is great. I love to swirl the frit. The colors look so cool close to the bead hole.

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!


These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
