Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a good start into 2011. I definitely had a wonderful time. My boyfriend took me for a walk through the snow on the 31st. When we reached the ruins outside our village he proposed to me, so we're now officially engaged. :D

Christmas was a quite busy time, but there was still time to work on some jewelry and accessories. I found some awesome beads and made some stuff to wear for myself as well as a few gifts for friends over in America.

One of the pieces I am very proud of is this snowflake watch. I couldn't believe how cheap the watch part was, so I ordered it along with these adorable snowflakes. And of course I had to make some matching earrings to go with it.

And because I loved the watch so much I also made a bracelet and a second set of earrings. Both of them will go to a dear friend in America as gift.

I also found a couple of Christmas charms on DaWanda and started making bracelets with them. I still have an unfinished one and a few lose charms in my box, but I wanted to show you the two I've finished. I sorted the charms after colours and matched the beads to these colours. I think they turned out pretty neat.

This key chain is another Christmas gift, going to the fiancé of the girl that's getting the snowflake bracelet.

This one is my fiancé's favourite item. It's also a Christmas gift, going to his roommate, because he told me that she envied the first tophat I made. I love the little skull cameo. I'm sure you'll see more items where I used it, during this year.

That's it for me from today. I hope you like my Christmas creations.

Have a great 2011!
