I blinked and January is nearly over!

We have had a couple weeks of gorgeous weather - no snow since New Year's Eve. But today we finally got about 6 inches. Generally, we complain about the snow, but today it was beautiful.
This is the biggest set of beads that I've ever made. It is a custom order for a regular customer/friend who is doing a set of 6 bracelets for a wedding. These kept me busy for a few days.
This is the first successful "Pandora" style bead that I made with my silver-coring tool. I am now able to line the hole of the bead with sterling silver. These beads are pretty popular right now, and even the major jewelry store chains (Jared, Harry Ritchie's, etc...) are selling them.
