All Those Christmas Makes I Couldn't Show You

For the past month or so I was working away at gifts for my family. I said I couldn't post about any of them, then posted about some of them anyway. But now I'm posting about them all at once. Because, why not?

For my mom:

A bohemian pendant with bling.

A jungly, triple-stranded number. Check out the monkeys!

A glam, gold rose.

A kind of Egyptian-looking piece in cobalt and gold (all faux, of course).

Olive Fierce Flowers, a Tote Trove classic at Mom's request.

For my sister:

A trio of clock pendants, linked with jump rings and attached with the halves of two toggle clasps to black satin ribbon.

Frieda charms knotted with green satin ribbons. I hate that pesky glare, though. Must learn to take better photos in 2010.

For my grandmom:

Red glass beads linked to a pendant and toggle clasp with wire. A new technique for me.

An extra long pendant in elegant black and gold.

A crown jewel of a pendant.

Tiny tote gift card holders in holiday style.

For the bf's mom and sister:

Totes with a personal touch.
