Merry Giftie to You ! December 16, 2015

Filed under: Archives — Fresh Baked Designs @ 1:20 pm

     Santa brought me an early present yesterday…it landed right in my mailbox.  Truthfully, it was a little gift to myself.  Some of my new favorite recycled glass button beads. In three colors!  Cobalt, turquoise, and a deep red. And I’m making up some pretty earrings this afternoon.

     First, I apply a coat of Renaissance Wax and give each piece a good buffing. I like what it does to the finish and coating provides some measure of protection against accidental scratching of the glass surface.

      I love these because they are made of recycled glass, but even more for their luminous colors. My poor attempts to photograph them with the sunlight behind failed miserably. You’ll just have to take my word that they are even more gorgeous  if you have short hair like me…or wear your hair in a party up-do.

     To spread a tiny bit of holiday cheer, I’m gifting a pair of these to one of you!  Just leave which color you would prefer…cobalt, turquoise, or red… in your comment post.

     Be sure to leave your email if needed, so I can reach you easily if your number comes up.  I’m also happy to switch out this long sterling silver ear wire for a shorter French hook style. This giveaway is open until Wednesday, December 23rd.  I’ll post the winner on Christmas Eve.  I probably won’t be able to mail out the prize until the next Monday…maybe these should be called Happy New Yearrings!

(P.S. Dear WordPress, how can I keep these snowflakes falling all year long??  I just love them!)

Merry Christmas, Happiest of Holidays,

and a Sparkling New Year!
