Vintage is big – really big! From delicate Victoriana to edgy Steampunk, vintage is very in. I love it all but for our upcoming workshops, am balancing between the extremes. This beaded charm bracelet has varying shades of amethyst and mauve glass pearls and faceted bicone crystals dangling from beautiful chain with a gunmetal finish.
Chain is from the ‘Assorted Gunmetal Chain and Findings Kit’. Glass pearls and crystals from the ‘Assorted Pearls and Crystals Kit’. Both are available from Bijoux by Me at www.bijouxbyme.co.uk Workshops start in September. Book your place now!
