I took time off from stripping wallpaper last night and this morning to make this ensemble to go with a new jumper I had bought recently. I needed something in brown, and I had bought some bags of mixed beads in various colours at Sandown a couple of weeks ago. I used my my white and brown bags.
Inspired by Sarah Millsop's demos on C&C yesterday - this is what I made:

and finally I made a charm bracelet to match. Ok so the base of the bracelet was a premade stretchy one, but a girl has to cheat sometimes! However, I did create all the charms on it. I even got a bit adventurous and managed some fancy wirework on one of them, having mastered the twirl on the end as demonstrated by Sarah.

and finally another of Sarah's ideas to attach a bead using an eyepin and wrapping it around the bead to make a "bail".
