It's super frozen outside, but we managed to get out and about today to get our Christmas tree. It was a mistake to wait so long, because all the trees available were iced over...can't exactly bring an iced Christmas tree in the house. We ended up going to Lowe's, where there were 3 tiny reject trees left. One of them was perfect for me though and we got it for a great price!

It's currently 31 degrees and we have a roaring fire going to heat us up! Harry is working on his monster drawing for the night ( and I'm working on editing some bead pics. All the while, we're watching the "Day After Tomorrow"...which just makes me colder as I watch.
The first pic is one of my half hollow focals. It is a long thin focal, with a hollow bumpy bead built off one end. I also created some matching rondelles to go with it. I'm really happy with the blue colors on the focal. I think I'll list this one in my eBay store.
The second pic is of one of my double hollow beads again with some matching rounds. The double hollow is made up of two separate hollows that have been merged together to create one bead. This bead will be available in my Etsy store.

Playing with Enamel

Here are some examples of enamel beads that I have been making lately. I'll be listing them on Etsy shortly.
