Holiday Bonus Post: Beading

Howdy, Readers! I said I might post some of the projects I've been working on this holiday season in lieu of regular comics, so here I present some jewelry I made as gifts.You may recall a similar post on On the Side after Five if you are a long time reader. I have purchased some much better tools since then, including a beading board. I adore it. Works much better than a coaster, let me tell you! You may also remember the necklaces I posted that I placed in my etsy shop in September...

Oh, snap! And then it turned out there's a post I never posted in 2012 all about the beaded holiday gifts I made then on On the Side after Five. Check that out--I really liked those! In fact, feel free to check out the other post from the 2012 holiday season I apparently never posted either! (Note: I don't even remember the last time I used my drawing tablet--I found it more and more infuriating over time). Whoops! I really enjoyed working on that blog with some really cool people, but in the end, we were all swamped with other projects.

Flash forward to the present day: I went to Bedazzled to buy beads and supplies in early December and was pleased to find out they now have a Rewards Program. The website says it costs $5 to get a card online, but it was free in-store. "You earn one point for every dollar spent, and when you get to 500 will automatically have a $50 reward to redeem." I am not sure I will be spending $500 anytime soon, but if you are super into beading, this could be for you! The only downside is that you have to spend the rewards in $50 increments.

This year I made

1 book mark:

2 pairs of earrings:

and 2 necklaces:

See anything you like? I am hoping to have more similar items available in my etsy shop soon!
