Oh2122's Family Christmas Swap

In case I haven't mentioned it (at least 50 times) I have a huge family. So big, we have to draw names for Christmas or we'd all go broke.

My little family unit of 3 actually got 3/4ths of another family unit. Weirdness like this happens all the time. One cousin has now gotten my youngest sis 3 years in a row.

When I asked this cousin what she wanted, she told me, "My birthstone is pearl, my favorite colors are red and black, and I have NO BRACELETS."

Done and done, cuz.

This is made with white and grey freshwater pearls and finished with silver plate findings.

Loving these grey pearls!

This one is red jade and onyx with permanently colored copper wire.
The clasp is hand made to match and connects to the last loop on the last link.

I've auto posted this for after the party's start time, so as not to ruin the surprise.

Off to eat way too many cookies!


  1. Those are gorgeous! I love the way the wire wraps around the beads in the second one. And I love it when people tell you what they actually want!

  2. Very pretty, I'm sure your cousin will love them! I'm from a big family to, we stopped giving to cousins and extended family years ago and I only give gifts to my parents, siblings, nieces, nephews, and my favorite aunt. That's still 15 people, more than enough, and sometimes I add in spouses of siblings if I find something appropriate!

  3. I love that one and grey one!! I'm sure your cousin will adore them!

  4. These are gorgeous! I love the red jade beads and how you wrapped wire around them!
