December favorites – JAC Challenge

December Favorites

 

December favorites – JAC Challenge

The December challenge from the Jewelry Artisans Community was to make a jewelry piece inspired by your december favorites.

At first we wanted to skip this months challenge because of the festivities we all have and it would be a busy month, but then we decided to make it a small one this time.
Our challenge is to make a design based on your favorite thing about December. It could be Christmas, the winter solstice, snow, frost, snowmen – whatever we would  like.

Because I had all my beads, wire and tools packed up in boxes I was allowed to post something I made about a month ago. I made a few brass tassels with bordeaux beads to go into the tree and I started with making 1.  🙂
Of course these can also be worn as pendants on a long chain.

Dawn from Jewelry Art By Dawn had little to no time due to the fact that she is taking a vacation in Asia at the moment.

Catrin from Cat’s Wire has made a lot of december favorites, there are so many so I decided to make a collage for Cat’s december entries. The one I like the best has to be the one with the dagger beads. You can find a lot more on her blog, just follow the above link.
Just click on the image of the collage when you want a better view.

    Can you imagine what a tree would look like if we decorated it all together? 😀 What a pity we are so far apart!

    Your tassels are really beautiful, they would be fun pendants on a strung seed bead rope.

      Could you believe that I have thought that same thing.
      I wondered how that tree must have looked like. 🙂
