Real Snowman Jewelry is Cute!

If you have been to this blog before, you will not be surprised to find out that I was making jewelry before work this morning.

Why in the world I get the idea that I have to make something at the spur of the moment, I have no idea!

The funny thing is, my quick little project looked very cute in my head, but I'm not sure it was all that cute in real life. It consisted of only 3 beads and a chain. One very large light grey pearl, a medium sized similar colored glass pearl and a sparkly crystal rondelle in between. Hanging from a simple silver chain, I thought it was so cute...

I made it, put it on and wore it most of the day. It dawned on me when I caught my reflection in the elevator doors that I had just worn a giant snowman necklace all day! What? How did I not realize that when I was making it?

I took it off at work when I realized it, but will bring it home tomorrow to show you. I also had a fleeting idea that it would be fun to pull out a sharpie and put a little smiley face on him, but I held myself back.

In the mean time, I thought it would be fun to share some REAL snowman earrings that are part of a kit from How cute! I have a pair of these somewhere, they are a lot of fun to make and wear. Also a great project for new beaders!

The snowman earrings are so cute - the idea of a snowman necklace also appeals to me !!
I know what you mean about spur of the moment beading - it happens to me a lot - in the middle of doing the ironing, cooking the dinner - I hear a voice from downstairs asking me why the pans are boiling over.....!!
