Christmas Reds

About this design:

A colleague requested RED... with gold. She's petite with long blonde hair, so this should be a good set for her.

While I was making her pieces and had the red beads out, I started on my Christmas bracelets. Lots of odds and ends from the local craft store.

The penguins and polar bears are my FAVE! Love any penguins! This reminds me of the Coca-Cola commercials at Christmas time. But a wise student pointed out that it's actually impossible. Polar bears live at the north pole and penguins live at the south pole. But they get to play together in my little world!!!

    I also admire the red beads that look hexagonal? (I think that’s the word) ;)

    My favorites are the Santa hat and gift. I guess I’m a sucker for Santa. All in all, a pretty, festive assortment of pieces and sets.

    Thanks, ladies.
    My colleague LOVED the simple red set. She has already given me a new task to accomplish. Anyone ever seen a lampwork bead in the shape of a lighthouse???
    The santa hat and gift, and the AWESOME penguins and polar bears are from JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts. They came on one of those long cards. TOO expensive because they’ve been priced TOO high so they can put them “on sale” but I had to have them!!!
