I don't know about you, but I'm amazed at how close Thanksgiving and Christmas are (again!).  Yikes!  A little gift shop I drive by quite often has a wooden snowman out front with a countdown to Christmas.  It has been there since the middle of the summer so I've been watching the days tick off, sometimes almost with a feeling of dread!  LOL!  Now, I'm not meaning to sound Scrooge-like because I absolutely love both of the holidays, but, gosh, it seems like they were here just a few months ago.  Where does the time go???

Was browsing through many of the studios that are part of the wonderful Jewelry Creators Unite in Numbers (JCUiN) guild.  Decided since Christmas is closing in, I would curate a collection of gift ideas with a wide prices range.  "Christmas Gift Ideas from the JCUiN" is what resulted:  http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=collections&op=details&cid=29481


Here are a few of the pieces from the collection:


Red Earrings - Faceted Glass

To start off with, here's a perfectly simple pair of faceted glass holiday earrings.  I love cranberries and these remind me of them.  Handmade by Ginger of personaloasis, they can be found here:  http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/1293212
