Tree Jewelry



Sorry I haven't kept my blog up. This time of year it there just are not enough hours in a day. Besides trying to run the craft market, Etsy and ArtFire, it is my job to keep the leaves in our year at bay. If that were not enough, I took on the task of starting up a new jewelry team on Etsy and I decided I needed to do a home show in December to try and get a few extra sales. Consequently, my blog gets neglected!

I have jewelry coming out of every nook and cranny at the market and several hundred things that never even made it there so for the home show I am concentrating on decor items. I put my jewelry/stained glass skills to work and created these pretty little gems for the tree. Better yet, you can write on the back, so they can double as gift cards. I have about 6 done and another 50 or so waiting to be finished. The 4 sizes range from a 1.5 inch square to the 1.75 x 2.25 inch rectangle. They are paper, polymer clay and copper. Any pen will write on the back but I prefer my gold ink one, which of course I can't find. I think they would make a great gift tag because it is something that will be kept for years and not thrown away with the wrapping paper and ribbons. I sure hope other's think the idea is as great as I do!

It's part of my home made Christmas effort this year. How's your holiday crafting going?

That's a great idea of using them for name tags on gifts!
This is definately a crazy time for crafters. I'm still working on things for a craft bazaar. Then I hope to have enough time to finish the gifts for family.
Every year I say I'm going to start Christmas stuff in July. But I must forget that then it's time for garden stuff. LOL

Sandy,

Thanks so much for your visit to my much neglected blog and your kind comments.

Your tags are just the sweetest. I love that they can be used later for decorating. What a wonderful added bonus for someone's gift.

Your jewelry is also very pretty. I really enjoyed reading your post on silver.

I usually make my family and friends a gift for Christmas. I don't bother with list. In fact, I kind of loathe them. :) I think if you're giving someone a gift you should know that person well enough that you don't need a list to go by. Just your heart.

Have a Happy Day.

Kris
