Holiday Madness

This has been such an exciting week for me!
I had my first guest appearance and giveaway on This Vintage Grove's blog and it was so much fun! I love getting feedback and it was wonderful to hear the comments of all the contestants that entered!
The best part was receiving a whole bunch of new likes on my Litva's Jewelry Facebook page!
Also I am excited to see what the winner, Molly, will pick out with her $25 gift card! 

Excited!!! Yes I know I said that already.... but tomorrow is Cyber Monday and of course i will be doing a sale!!! This is the big one! For my FB fans and blog followers you can use the code "cyber25" to receive 25% OFF STORE WIDE & FREE SHIPPING!!!   

The madness continues.... This Saturday December 1st is my 5th Annual Christmas Jewelry Show at my salon!   I think this is the most relaxed I have ever been beforehand!  I am pretty well prepared this year, lots of inventory and a few new lines to debut this year!

Aside from my Beaded Crochet Ropes & Bracelets I had fun with Silk thread, knotting little delicate bracelets that sparkle, adjustable with a sliding knot, and my Crochet Wear-Alls that can be worn as necklaces, bracelets or anklets!  

This was the year I finally got inspired to use some of the colored wire I have had for several years, I decided to do something fun with these bright fun colors! 
Simple little rings which can be worn as a toe ring or pinky ring and are also the perfect size for young girls! 
Also, ear-cuffs!  I thought... Why not? Though no matter how I try these ear-cuffs turn out slightly different each time!  I made these to be worn a bit lower on the ear than what we traditionally see, so that the swirl at the bottom sits closer to where the ear is (or would be) pierced.  I thought it looked super cool with my feather earrings, the ear-cuff almost seemed as if it was supposed to be part of the design of the feather earring!  

More wire adventures... I created a pendant from a tutorial I purchased.  As well these tend to turn out a bit different each time, I think due to the free form bending and manipulation of the wire around the pearls.  As I prepped them to photograph today I just realized I have only made them in silver toned wire... better squeeze in some time before Saturday for some gold toned ones!

Finally my most advanced wire technique I have learned so far, also from a tutorial, Gemstone pendants wire wrapped with Czech seed beads!  I'm still getting into the swing of this one, very time consuming and my fingertips can only handle making two in one day! They are simple and yet full of detail, I absolutely love them!

These new lines will be available in my online shop after this weekend's show!

Which is your favorite?  I would love to hear your thoughts!
