Handbag Charm

I'm sure most of you know by now, I'm a challenge addict...I find them a great inspiration for my card-making. I also dabble with jewellery making...and whilst browsing various websites yesterday, came across a Jewellery Challenge blog...I really don't know why I hadn't thought to look for one before! lol

Their current challenge uses this photo as inspiration:

I've created a handbag charm, and used both the colours, and the butterfly as inspiration. I've attached a mixture of amber and brown coloured glass beads to a chain using headpins, and finished it off with a butterfly charm at the bottom.

I really enjoy beading...I find it really relaxing...and I must try to find more time to do it. I'll definitely be joining in with this challenge again!
