My Christmas List (part 2)

I'm still working my way through the Challenge of Color blogs, but couldn't wait to share another Christmas list with you (and my husband).

This list is more centered on beads that I would love to find under the (still non-existent) tree or in my stocking. To compile this list I went through my favorites on Etsy as well as through my bookmarked links. I know I'm leaving off a TON of wonderful artists, but I made this list by what each favorite currently had in stock and what I would want. If I left anyone off, please let me know in the comments!

For this list, I'm linking to both the shop home as well as the item(s) that I like the most. So, in no particular order here's list number two!

ONE

Handmade Flower Burst Copper 3 hole oval Drops

TWO
Woodland Shore - Bird Bead Set

THREE
Pennant Pendant Set
Off to Sea Pendant

FOUR
Early Fall/Ceramic Acorn and Leaf Charm and Bead Set

FIVE
Little Fox Bead - Sleepy Woodland Critters

SIX
Tiny Hot Cocoa Disk Beads
Falling Leaves Cuff Connector - Teal

SEVEN
Yellow Cobalt Blue and Black small recycled glass and stoneware clay pendant, charm, or earring set
Soft and Sweet Double loop Pendant Stoneware clay and Recycled glass

EIGHT
Handmade Lampwork Glass Beads - Autumn Organics

NINE
Lampwork Glass pairs/ green sparkle and ivory glass

TEN
Glass Enameled Earrings in Iris Purple

Now, for Pat's benefit. . .I don't have to have ALL of the items on both lists, this is just a sampling of some gifts from which you can choose. As well, on THIS list, if something is sold out. . .take a look around their shop. They may have listed something even BETTER!!

In addition to the specific beads I've shown, some of these artists do offer Gift Certificates for their shops. That would be a great option also.

One last option in regards to gift certificates are my favorite local shops:

If you haven't done so yet, let me know what's on your list. And, like I said above. . I know I've left some artists off. Leave a comment letting me know who I left off (even if it's YOU) and a link to the shop(s) I've forgotten. The holidays make me Crazy-forgetful like that!!

  4. HO, HO, HO... Hope I want what is on this list, tell Pat to get two of each please LOL just kidding! I like how at the end you have a paragraph explaining to Pat how this wish list thing can work.
    I need to get my list together and maybe someone in my family will feel up to getting something off of my list.
    Have a great day!

  5. LadyN- Yes! I don't remember where I saw her stuff first, but I definitely had a hard time picking the fox over some of the other cuties she's got. I'm so glad you discovered something new!

  11. Jenna- a TREASURY!! Why did I not think of that? All mine are on Etsy too, it would have so easy. I might have to go back and make then into a treasury when I get my laptop back (it's in the shop) and am not trying to work off my iPad. Thank you for the wonderful idea. And, your treasury is great. I've now added a few of those shops to favorites! Very cool.
