Christmas in August

Inspired by the cooler temperatures here in metro Atlanta this morning – it’s not even 80 degrees yet, and it’s almost noon! – I pulled out some beads and findings and put together some holiday earrings.

I made shiny, iridescent Christmas trees

These really sparkle.

and cheerful snowman expressing their individual personalities through the colors of the scarves.

Fuschia.
Sapphire.
Amethyst.
(Out of focus. Sorry.)

Then I made another pair of earrings from some black crystal moon beads I bought ages ago.

I am looking forward to wearing these.

I really need to stop beading until I get some better photographs and add all these new pieces, along with everything I made over the summer, to my Etsy store. But making the jewelry is the fun part.

Am I the only one thinking about Christmas today?
