Third Annual Octoberfest

One hop that is quickly becoming one of my favorites is Tolec Jewel's Octoberfest.  One reason for that is it is to celebrate all things autumn.  It can be delicious fall recipes, decor or jewelry.  You just never know what will be shared with the reader.

Now you know me.  My contributions are all about jewelry.  And this year I went fun with this pair of earrings which is going to be donated to Ears To You.  They are just the thing to remind someone to have fun this season.

This next pair is also all about fun. The wonderful jack-o-lanterns were made by Sheryl of Metapolies  I don't recall however where I picked up the orange lampwork beads though.  This pair is also being donated.

This next design is simple but is all about autumn with the falling leaves.  The lampwork bead is from Beatle Baby Glassworks.  It is currently for sale here

This last necklace will be a Yule gift for a friend of mine who is both a Green Witch, hence the green that makes an appearance, and a cat lady.  The focal is from Blu Mudd Ceramics.

I had to chuckle because one of the things that we could do to join in was open up a shop for our works.  I actually opened mine up on Labor Day but you are welcome to check out everything that I have there also.  Just click on the link for Shaiha Designs or click here.  I have set up a discount on my jewelry for this hop.  Just enter OCTFEST for 10% off.

Now to sure to check out what other fall gifts these artists have to share with you.
