Now, I have two small problems. The first is that blogger's scheduler is not working properly, so I am posting this at 7:15 in the AM on the 6th. So, be patient with me, I'm a little slow, but I'm here! Secondly, my hop partner, Stephanie Stamper (Woods), is a little late on sending her bling, so I decided to post what I sent her, and I'll add a post when her items get here. We decided to make an ornament or decoration and a piece of holiday appropriate jewelry.
So, here is the ornament, and I have to say it is HEAVILY influenced by my recent work on projects from Jean Power and Kate McKinnon from their new books to be released shortly. I was an early order maniac and I have been receiving bits and pieces of some of the new patterns/projects. The first book is called Contemporary Geometric Beadwork, and horns and wings and wildly shaped things are definite features of their new visions. So, here is my Pagoda Ornament, based on some of their early concepts (with apologies to the authors LOL).

And now for the ear bling!

So now, fellow blog travelers, visit these lovely blogs for their early holiday presents!
