I made Christmas Jewelry!! (and a Christmas earring giveaway!)

Last weekend I got my beads out and made myself some new Christmas jewelry.

I'm pretty happy with my creations, can't wait to wear them all!

All of the beads I used to make my Christmas jewelry are glass. And all of the findings, clasps and earwires are sterling silver. (yes, I just began a sentence with the word "and"............but I capitalized it!)

Here are a few things I made. Keep in mind that I am really bad at taking pictures! Actually, lighting is my problem, these are the best I could do:

This beaded bauble necklace looks like candy!



A closer look at the candy baubles:




I had an extra bauble, so I put it on a sterling silver chain. Now it's a "piece 'o candy" necklace:



I really love this black and red combo, it turned out better than I thought it would. I can't wait to wear this:



I liked the red/black necklace so much I made 2 pairs of earrings to match it:
Pair 1



And pair 2 (not sure which pair I like more, they're both cute):




Then I just started playing around with earrings, these are a few pairs I came up with:






These look like cracked ice:


a closer look at the cracked glass beads, they look really cool:




I'm excited to get Timmy to take me out so I can wear my new Christmas jewelry!
