Ornament Blog Hop

I had the wonderful chance to participate in an ornament swap created by Sally Russick.  Not only was I so fortunate to be able to participate Sally was my partner!!  I have been on a peyote stitch marathon so of course I had to create something with the flying missiles!  I went to a wonderful beader Therese for help.  She found me the spinning bead pattern.  I had fun making the spinning beads but wanted something a little larger(now I have those beads to find a project for).   I kept at it and finally found  The Crimson Moon on Etsy.  Liz does an excellent job of keeping you on track to make these a fun project.   Back to Etsy for some snowflake shopping at BohemianFindings.  I found all kinds of fun Christmas charms.......if only there were more hours in a day I would have a tree full!  I guess I have all winter to do more for next year.....

I was having so much fun I made her another one!!

Sally made me the most beautiful ornament  full of so many special little touches.

It's just perfect!  Thank you so much Ms. Sally I will cherish it forever!

I can't wait to see what everyone has been creating!!
Take a little time and do some blog hopping...there are so many talented folks 


  1. What sweet beaded ornaments! I don't work with seed beads except to use as spacers sometimes, so I admire anyone who can make something so beautiful with them.

    I can see a tree dripping with these lovely ornaments!

  2. Hello! Nice to meet you on the swap! Your seed bead treasures are lovely! I am sure they will hang in prominent spots on the Russick tree every year!

  3. LOVE these! Classic Christmas Balls done Peyote Style! Kim, you really took to beadweaving--these are great! You know I am partial to the flying missiles :-)

  4. Kim!! I love the ornaments you sent I couldn't wait to put them on the tree! The seed beads catch the light from the Christmas tree lights so beautifully!
    Actually, those beautiful beaded beads you made got me so inspired that I have been bead weaving a cuff for the passed two weeks!!
    I'm thrilled you were my partner and thank you so much for participating in the swap/hop! Have a wonderful Christmas!!

  5. Kim, your ornaments are stunning, you're really rock'n those tiny evil beads :)
    Have a wonderful Holiday

  6. So so pretty Kim You guys both made great ornaments and I love the little spoon you sent Sally!

  7. The ornament you created for Sally is beautiful. Actually, they are all beautiful! You did a wonderful job creating the spinning bead too. I agree, a tree filled with your ornaments would be gorgeous!

  8. Those ornaments you made are just incredible! I am so amazed by the intricate work you seed beaders do :) They made perfectly beautiful and sweet ornaments!

  9. Wow! this has been so much fun! I love your ornaments! They are all lovely and so perfect for Xmas!

  10. What a beautiful ornament you made. Ornaments! I love snowflakes. I find it funny that you both made snowflakes for each other. Those beaded beads are so lovely. Thank you for sharing these sparkly ornaments with us!
    Enjoy the day!

  11. Kim, those spinning beads are gorgeous. I have always wanted to learn how to make those! The snowflake charms really completes the ornament. Beautiful!

  12. Hi Kim, the ornaments you made are so very pretty, I love the little beaded beads Bling, Bling. I bet a tree with those sprinkled all around would be gorgeous. The ornament Sally sent to you is beautiful. Isn't it wonderful how creative minds have a tendency to think on the same line, both ornaments having snowflakes, but yet totaly different.
    Oh and thank you for the shout out it makes me smile when I can help another wonderfully creative person out.
    Merry Chistmas,

  13. Kim, WOW! Those peyote balls are just fabulous. I'm sure your ornaments will be treasured by Sally as you will treasure her creation. You both really made something special!!

  14. Beautiful ornaments, gorgeous beadeded beads and the snowflakes look great with them, love the spoon ornament you sent Sally too.

    Happy Holidays!!

  15. Kim, just finally getting to commenting on the awesome swap posts - *love* the ornaments you made for Sally!! I think you guys who work with seed beads are amazing...

  16. Both of your ornaments are just perfect! I am going to have to figure out those beaded beads as well!

  17. Kim, I absolutely loved your ornament when I saw it on Sally's blog...and the painted spoon ornament as well. You create with such detail and care. I think you have a natural talent with seed beads...and a paintbrush for that matter! :-) I still want to know what I can do to get my hands on one of your necklaces! :-)
    I hope you are enjoying the many blessings of the season.
    Merry Christmas to you, dear friend!

  18. Necklaces have been an integral part of jewelry since the time of ancient civilizations and predate the invention.The oldest necklaces were made of purely natural materials.So according to above image we are going old natural civilizations

  19. A little late but I've only just discovered your post. What a terrific idea! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the tutorial and made some amazing decorations with the beads. Very unique! :)
