For complete details about the Octoberfest challenge, just re-visit the sign-ups post, "Third Annual Octoberfest" for ideas, themes, and inspirations for your autumn celebrations.

If you signed and up and don't see your name -- or if you'd like to join us -- I'm happy to add you to the participating artists. Please email me with the subject line "Octoberfest 2014" at: toltecjewels (at) aol.com

Thank you everyone for signing up for Octoberfest! It means so much to me, and I'm honored and excited each one of you joined in to be a part of the Third Annual Octoberfest blog hop. I look forward to our wonderful autumn celebration!

Rita :) 

Toltec Jewels is an author by day, jewelry maker by night. Her literary work is housed by the San Francisco MOMA and is published internationally in popular magazines, literary quarterlies, and university publications. She has won a number of awards for both her literary and jewelry arts. She is happiest making handcrafted jewelry with her entire family, snuggling with her Chihuahua Pancho,  Aussie Lila, Malamute Holly, and her grandkids, sewing, singing, reading, and learning more jewelry techniques. She is the hostess of JSF, a diverse community of expert and emerging artisans taking inspiration from each other and jewelry arts. Join her for networking, fundraising for Beads of Courage, jewelry making challenges, blog hops, contests, give-a-ways and of course, cool beads and jewelry!


  1. Oh wow! I forgot about the prizes. I just joined in because I love this hop though that Big Kick would sure get some use around here.

  2. Rita-thank you for organizing this. I really enjoy this blog hop!
