Bead and Jewelry Link Love

Here's a little seasonal artwork from the Short One. He amused himself after making this by picking off the turkey's googly eyes then complaining vociferously that the turkey was "broken" after the eye came off. I have no idea when the eye came off again, but this guy is clearly destined to be a one-eyed turkey for the holiday.

As I mentioned earlier, I've decided not to sweat the holidays, and I'm taking the week off. I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving! In the meantime, here are your intriguing bead and jewelry links for the week:
