    Love the Christmas-themed jewelry ideas! And I really appreciate that you always provide the instructions for us. Other sites charge a fee to get the patterns and instructions. I can understand that because it is fair to be paid for one’s creativity. But it is also very nice to receive the “gift” of your patterns just because you are kind enough to want to share them with us!! I’m a frequent visitor to the design studio to see your work!

    What wonderful and creative Christmas designs. I especially liked the candy cane earrings and the green and red bracelet with all the charms. My granddaughter will love that bracelet. She is blind, but will love the charms on her bracelet. Just love your site!
