Battling Through Late Winter or Is it Spring yet?

Yep, I'm ready for Spring in that I am so sick of this winter flu that has me in it's grip!
My energy level has been so low for the last week that I'm as unproductive as football crazed couch potato during superbowl!  My over achiever little self hates being unproductive so much I start to dream deadlines that don't exist and wake up frantic with panic.
This too shall pass....right?

However....I did get a reminder that I'm not a complete loss...as Artbeads' "Winter Enchantment" gallery was just published over on Facebook.
Here you will find my 'Winter Sun' earrings and the 'Winter Sun' pendant created to match them.



These are probably the blingiest things I've ever created and whether you wear just the earrings, just the pendant or dazzle with the set they are sure going to get you noticed.
I blogged about the earrings when I made them and showed the back where I have encases the back of the rivoli.   I followed suit with the pendant and encased the back of the stone....I've taken to doing this to protect the foil back rather than coating the back with nail polish.

I'm teaching the set this month...however, we're off to a slow start as I had to cancel yesterdays class due to my illness.  I haven't been well enough to even write the tutorial for the pendant yet but the earring tutorial is available in my Artfire store.


And the disclaimer:
Artbeads provide the beads and supplies for these projects and ask only for an honest review....I am not paid for my review or links.
