Christmas decorations

I woke up this morning from a dream where I was beading little stars out of beads and sequins.  While I was brushing my teeth I thought ‘that could work!’.  Then while I was getting dressed I realised it wouldn’t as it wouldn’t be stiff enough.  But by the time I’d got to Patchings and my beads it had occured to me that if I used bugles it would work.  So I started by making this silver star.

I was quite pleased with this, so I carried on playing and made these Christmas trees.

And moved onto these versions using 3mm bugles and smaller sequins for earrings.

I know it’s a bit early yet, but it’s only a month to the Christmas Market.  I’m quite pleased with these (the earrings in particular are much nicer than they look in the photo – seasonal but not over the top), especially as they were designed in a dream!
