Octoberfest Blog Hop

Sorry that this post is late got busy playing with beads I purchased at CreativFestival.

Fall is a great inspiration with the many colours in nature and wonderful holiday decorations.

As part of another challenge I created this amazing pirate necklace. The Halloween challenge hosted by Lisa Lodge started with this kit of beads.

Here is the finished Pirate Queen of the Seven Seas necklace. I am looking forward to wear it for Halloween.

I have also been preparing for an upcoming craft sale making a variety of earrings and snowflakes. I loved these wonderful lucite leaves. They turned in this beautiful fall coloured earrings.

Doing the fall display at work is always fun. This year I decided to create a tree with falling book/leaves.

Take sometime to hop around and see what some of these other amazing artisans have created this fall!
