Cyber Monday Blues.

Cyber Monday is essentially a myth perpetuated by retailers who seem to want to convince us that it's a big shopping day. The sad thing is, most of the Cyber Monday advertising that I've seen is from large chain stores. It isn't enough that they have Black Friday, and in some cases are even open on Thanksgiving itself, now they want us to shop on-line after our holiday weekend is over. Well, bah on them.

I don't really have the blues about Cyber Monday not being an amazing day of sales for me... This is the Cyber Monday Blues post because I made three blue necklaces for this week's update. Next week I hope to have some earrings to compliment them, but after these and a custom-ordered blue badge holder, I need a few days off from blue. I also added two spiral bracelets and two pairs of earrings today. Maybe after seeing all of this week's new beauties, you'll find yourself inspired to do a little Cyber Monday shopping of your own!

Atlantean Treasure (pictured above) Necklace featuring a lampworked bead by Ann "Schermo" Baldwin.

Dark Jester This one also features a Schermo bead!

Pegasus Flight A Sterling Silver Pegasus and lampwork by Laurie Byrne Smith.

Spirit Dancer Black, rusty red and golden bronze iris look stunning together. Yum!

Lilac Whisper If you have a purple addiction to feed, this one is for you.

Shadow Vines As promised, gold filled earrings... And with lampwork by Lois Oster!

Rain of Blood
Named after that Die Form song. Also gold filled.

By the way, the sky is turning awesome colors right now. It's been overcast all day, which makes for a gorgeous sunset. Wow. If I wasn't nice and cozy with a warm kitty in my lap, I'd rush out and take some pictures.

    Spirit Dancer -- "as *she* throws" -- only typo I saw. ;)

    Those earrings are tempting, but I wear sterling. Such timing, huh?

  2. Ha! Figures! This is what I get for buying gold filled findings on a whim. Time will tell if it was a worthwhile investment.

    I keep both and since most of mine are presents or charity auctions, I just use what I think looks best. For my own, I always use sterling, though.
