Good evening one and all, this is my submission for the big bead give away, a wonderfully kind and talented bead artist Lesley set several budding jewellery/crafty people a challenge, we were given a lucky dip bead/beads and were asked to make something of interest, I have chosen to make a handbag charm, shown here:

I was lucky enough to be sent 3 beads all in all, so with the final two beads I put together a pair of earrings, shown below;
 
 I apologise now for the pictures as I have waited too late in the day to photograph them and forgot how quickly the light goes in Winter.
If you would like to see the original bead challenge information set by Lesley, please follow this link: http://thegossipinggoddess.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/free-beads-anyone.html

This is a massive blog hop and urge you to check out everyone’s wonderful submissions, they are all going to be magic and would hate you to miss out on them:
Thankyou once again to Karen and to Lesley.
