For Christmas I was lucky enough to get a new coat, and this coat is a bright shade of pink (you can see me coming!).
I decided that this needed a nice brooch of some sort and so I made myself a pink heart bead. Brooches really aren't my area of expertise, so I sent the bead to my friend George and she turned it into the most fabulous fibula!
I can't tell you how thrilled I am with it, and I've had no end of comments about it.
So now I had a new coat, I had to change my bag ........ the bag I was using was green, nothing wrong with it, just kinda clashed with the coat! I was in town the other week and Clarks had a sale on, imagine my joy when I saw the handbag I was after in sale at half price!! I just had to have it.
Now I have my new bag, it really needed a bag charm to match in with the coat. So here is the new charm
I made the heart bead with silver rich glass and gold leaf and teamed it with silvered ceramic beads and Swarovski crystals, strung on a leather cord!

Another beautiful necklace to drool over, you really can't beat handmade!
Lesley has used my bead and teamed it with silks by Diane (www.sowzeredesigns.com) and sterling silver findings and my favourite Swarovski crystal.
