This was a set I created for the Christmas season. I was trying to think up of what other Christmas jewelry I could make and I remembered I had these cool beads that are these light weight sphere beads that came in a variety of colors and size. They also look like they were splattered with paint which I think is such a cool design. I chose the colors silver, red, green, light green, gold, brown, light brown, and dark brown. I wire wrapped them together with gold wire to create a nice color contrast. I was thinking of holiday parties when I was making it because it does remind me of Christmas parties I would see in old tv shows. The pendant style was inspired by a snowman which you can kind of tell. My aunt bought this piece from me and wore it for new years eve. She really likes the fact that the earrings are light because she loves big jewelry but most big earrings are heavy and her ears can handle those type of earrings anymore. Now she can only wear light weight earrings.
