And then there was Light

I'm finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!! Yippee!

It's still pretty cold, but I've braved the temps and gotten out into the workshop. I've been busy working on orders for Christmas, and today...success, the last order was completed and delivered. I won't be taking any more orders for this year. There are still some things that I'd like to make for Christmas gifts, but I'm not going to put any pressure on myself. If they get done, great, if not...no biggie.

Take a peek at a few of the pieces that will be finding new homes Christmas morning...

I love bangles!...these 3 are a set

This bracelet is very similar to one I had done before, different clasp and a lot longer. This is my first piece going to a gentleman. 

This ring was learned from Lisa Claxton. Love all the texture and it's so easy to wear!

This little lovely was the only one to go that has beads. But that's okay...it will be loved just the same.

The kids last full day of school is Thursday, and we have lots of plans (I hope) while they're on break. Which also means that there is still a lot to get completed, and only two short days to get a long list of "to do's" done. Then, we're home free to make gingerbread houses, bake cookies, watch Christmas movies, do crafts...you get the idea. What fun activities do you do to get ready for the holidays?


  1. Hooray, you go, girl!

    I sent off my last two this a.m. but I have a show in March to focus on now. . .

  2. love absolutely everything Shelby! I have wanted to learn to do that ring! It is a good feeling to be done, isn't it? I have a couple more custom things that need finishing, then that is it for me as well.

  3. These are beauties. Doesn't it feel good to close the door and throw your energy into the holidays? Have a lovely time with your family and those near and dear over the next couple of weeks.

  4. Beautiful work, Shelby! Your jewelry will bring many smiles on Christmas morning!

  5. Beautiful - all of them, Shelby! Sounds like you are getting into gear for a great holiday!

  6. Really beautiful pieces Shelby! Lucky recipients! I lovin that ring!

  7. Oh Shelby,they will all be thrilled on Christmas morning!!! Indeed girl. Thanks for swinging by. Glad you like my "hot" boxes! Too much fun. Take care, Riki

  8. I love that last bracelet. The beads are adorable. I'm sure the recipients will love them.
