Holiday Patterns and Kits!

I have some new holiday kits, made with vintage Swarovski Crystals, as well as some old favorites and, of course,  Santa earring and Snowdrop Ornament patterns that you simply can't do without!  Each photo is a clickable link.

 Swarovski Crystal Christmas Tree Kits in Vitrail Medium

Santa Hat Earring Kits
 These are made with the vintage Swarovski Cones (sometimes called sputnik beads).  Very hard to find in the bright red color, but I managed it!

Swarovski Crystal Christmas Tree Necklace Kits 
with Vintage Swarovski Margaritas
The bottom two Margaritas were discontinued in the 70's and 80's.  It took me a while to hunt them down in the right sizes, but I did!

Swarovski Crystal Christmas Tree Earring Kits in Crystal AB and Aquamarine
These match the vintage necklace kits.

Beaded Santa Earring Pattern
