Lately it's been beads over words

It's not Christmas season, but the whole Holiday rollout at work this past week has chronologically thrown me. Once again, I'm reminded, time is largely just a human construct. Undeniably it passes, but the actual "when" of seasons is rather subjective.

That being said, things are picking up for the Christmas shopping season. I donated a necklace and bracelet set to a local bonspiel's silent auction. (If you know what sport that involves, you're probably Canadian or Scottish.)

Fire-finished beads, pink cathedral beads, black and gold glass beads, and gold metal clasps. The bracelet features a folded glass beads and the necklace features a polished, faceted citrine pendant.

Bookmarks continue. A few people will be getting special Christmas surprises. ;)

Speaking of Christmas, for the season: Handmade holiday ornaments. Versitile and festive, these colorful creations can be hung on your tree, mantle, or attached to gifts/cards. Selling for $5 each ($7 including shipping) or 3 for $14 ($18 including shipping.)

Starlight variation.

Sleigh Ride variation.

If you're in Kamloops next weekend, Nov 21–22, please visit Christmas at the Square. The Art We Are will have a table, where the ornaments as well as many other beautiful local artisan's creations will be available. I'll even be working the table for a couple hours Friday afternoon, so say hello.

I am unclear on the size of these ornaments. Can you give measurements or place something standard in the photo to show scale. Then I will know how many to order.

Ornaments are about 5.5 to 6 inches from tip of the loop to the bottom of the object.
