Five new ARTdornments necklaces are on auction, ending on Wednesday. They include: lovely lady playing a mandolin, beaded with gorgeous red, gold and green glass beads, an antiqued gold poppy pendant on a black and red beaded necklace, a striking Eclectus Pair set with green beads, a unique horse medallion pendant, and a lovely beaded set featuring a pair of Congo African Grey Parrots.

I'm offering another Giveaway this month! The prize is this pretty horse medallion necklace in antiqued silver, from my ARTdornments line. Enter to win here. You can earn extra entries by "Liking" my Facebook pages: ARTdornments on Facebook, Alicia's Creations on Facebook page, , and Joy Magnet Art on Facebook, or by following my Twitter accounts as well, but these are not mandatory. The giveaway is open to residents of the USA, age 18 and older, and ends on January 4. Good luck!

To show my appreciation for your business this month, everyone who purchases something from my eBay auctions will receive a free gift! I created several dozen beautiful "poinsettia petal" pendants, and look forward to sharing them with you! I piled them all up together for this photo, each "petal" is a separate pendant!

May you be blessed with peace, love and joy this holiday season, and enjoy an abundance of all good things in the coming New Year!

One of the benefits of being laid up ill for so long a few months ago was that I had a lot of "couch time", in which I browsed through a LOT of great books. One in particular that inspired me featured historical jewelry, so it's no surprise that some of my newest pieces have a bit of that "flavor"!

Galah lovers will need to check out the Rose Breasted Cockatoo necklace! There is also a beautiful beaded necklace and earring set featuring another Waterhouse painting that I love.

The three other new necklaces do not feature images, but instead are sculpted around glass stones, some with Swarovski crystals embedded. The necklaces are all being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 22st.

For the first time ever, I had one of my necklaces modeled and professionally photographed, for the new website! I am so thrilled with the shot, isn't it lovely? Big thanks to photographer Thomas Sevcick of Lakeview Photography, in Sandy, Utah. Tom specializes in stunning nature photography, and also does wonderful portraits, as well as events. If you're in Utah and need a photographer, give him a call!

The full ARTdornments website will not officially debut until later in 2013, but you are welcome to come and take a sneak peek and see what I have up so far:

I've also set up a brand new Facebook page dedicated just to ARTdornments, at I'd LOVE to have you come over and "Like" it if you would like to stay up to date with this line of my work. I'll be updating the Facebook page with photos and news as this new line evolves and grows, so come on over and connect - I'd love to hear from you and get your feedback!

Do you "tweet"? I feel a little out of my element with Twitter, but have set up an account for ARTdornments: Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon!
