A Charming Line Up

Making bag/purse charms is a pleasant diversion today.  I have even given them names from Regal Purple to Tutti Fruitti!  They are mainly made up of crystal, glass and seed beads and have a nice weight to them without being heavy.

These two are slightly different as I used silver coloured seed beads, volcanic rock, skull beads and a feature rose bead on each.  Do have a preference for any in particular? Are you drawn to certain colours?  Any feedback would be good!  I hope your week is going well.  It has been so warm and sunny here I think summer is struggling to let go.  Roll on autumn.  The nights are still far too hot!


  1. They look so pretty.
    Thank you for the kind comment on my blog

  2. They are all lovely but if I had to choose I'd go for the first ones in any colour. Thank you for your kind comment on my recent BBB post.

  3. They are all very pretty, Simone - I like the colours in the one on the right of the photo of them all. It has been very warm over the last few days hasn't it? The last summer rays are still clinging on:)

  4. May favourite is definitely the one of the right, I'm guessing that's the tutti frutti one.

  5. They are all beautiful Simone but I must admit I'm drawn to the blue ones in both photos!

  6. A pretty dangle,
    to jangle
    and spangle...
    hope it won't tangle!

    I'm a Tutti Fruitti fan xx

  7. These are so pretty! I never would have thought of this!! xx

  8. I think theses are a lot of fun, Simone. They remind me of my days teaching in a middle school where it was quite the fashion for the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders to have lots of jangling bling hanging from their backpacks. Why shouldn't we bigger kids have our way too??
    Your design is just right. (and the names are a bonus!)

  9. Nice work!
    Good to meet you.

  10. Beautiful beading Simone - love your colour choices. The handbag charms are a great idea -they can be used in so many ways. I'm sure you would sell them on Etsy.

  11. The purple is certainly very regal. It's been a long time since I did any beading, but I'm quite inspired. Good luck leaving those 300 comments :-)
