I've been busy creating!

Over the holiday weekend I really got in the holiday spirit and creative mode! I decorated the house, as you all saw by my previous post and another post to come, but I also went to my jewelry table and created some holiday sparklies for my etsy site. Here is a sampling of what I created:

I love the color of this African turquoise bead and the green foil glass bead with the handmade hammered copper disk!

This turquoise necklace is so versatile-can be worn with jeans and a t-shirt or something a little more dressed up!

There is something about snowflakes that I just love-maybe because no two are alike. I placed an ice blue Swarovski crystal with these lovely snowflake charms.

I just love this dainty little earring! I think I'll have to make a pair for myself!! The rich red bead gives color to the sparkly silver holly leaves.

Everyone has to have a snowman or snowgirl in their holiday! So I created these beautiful Swarovski pearl and crystal snowgirls! I have named them Snowman earrings on my etsy site but they are definitely snowgirls!

I have decided to create a ribbon bookmark line and this is the first one I've created. I have about 6 more on my design table and will be putting them on my site on Wednesday night. I just love ribbons and thought ribbons and jewels/charms would be a wonderful and inexpensive gift idea!

This Swarovski crystal Christmas tree pair of earrings add whimsy and sparkle! Isn't that what Christmas is all about!

I hope you all love my creations and stop by the etsy site to do a little retail therapy! You can go to the right side of my blog and click on my etsy site. It will take you right there! Happy Shopping!!

I tried beading, as I have tried a lot of crafts, and it is not easy. They are beautiful.

Your house is so festive! I loved walking through and seeing everything you've done for the holiday season.

Sherri, your jewelry is beautiful. You are so creative when it comes to all of it. I love the necklace and the snowflake earrings are gorgeous. A little retail therapy never hurts anyone! lol.

I am very impressed. I loved all your designs. I happen to love sparkly things so it made me smile and enjoy just to look at them. I don't wear jewelry much anymore now that I don't work, but it doesn't mean I don't admire them.

I also love how you photographed the jewelry on the leaf, etc. The background really adds to the beauty of the jewelry.

Thanks everyone! I love creating these sparklies!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
