    I have been toying with xmas gift ideas and I am thinking of beading amulet bags, earrings, belt buckles, hat bands or whatever for xmas gifts. Any other beaders or jewelry makers out there starting on xmas?


    Here are some Cougar earrings from about 8 - 9 years [​IMG]

    I cannot do the stitch type ( whatever it is called) of beading.

    No patience for that. [​IMG]

    I would start on Christmas gifts, if I were going to give any to someone besides DD - I may do some earrings for my neices. No clue what to do for the nephews though [​IMG]

    I am almost done with the body of the first amulet bag necklace but before I do fringe and neck strap I must decide on the trim beads and etc.

    One of the guys is a smoker so I am thinking a beaded lighter case and/or cigarette case combo

    As for the stitches I use peyote in all variations, brick, vertical brick, right angle.weave amd my loom, lazy, cheyenne several others
