Charming Pendants

I went to a workshop yesterday entitled 'Charming Pendants'. The tutor Dawn brought along a tempting array of beads and we were encouraged to design our own pieces of jewellery - making charms and dangles to turn into earrings, necklaces, handbag charms etc.  I was immediately tempted by a circular shell pendant and some freshwater pearls and set about playing around with ideas and although my original intention was to make a necklace I finally decided to combine all the bits I'd made into a dangly brooch using a 'kilt pin' finding.  This was as usual a fun day and with Dawn's guidance and expertise some really 'charming' pieces emerged.


  1. Hi Val, I love this it's fabulous! and like you I'll be in the MR trying to get challenges and design team stuff done!!
