Beaded Handbag Charms

I had a little production line going at the weekend, making these little handbag charms for a group of special crafty friends...I know that some of them have received them...so I hope I'm not spoiling the surprise by putting them on here:


I've kept them really simple, using various faceted and fire polished glass beads attached with headpins to a short length of chain, finished off with a metal charm, all attached to a lobster clasp key ring using split rings for added strength.

As these are Christmas gifts...and definitely not cards...I'm entering these for the Creative Inspirations Challenge where the theme is 'Christmas Gifts'.

Helen, these handbag charms are just so gorgeous and will be proudly adorning many lovely handbags. Great idea to add that split ring for added strength. I might just copy this great idea from you.
