Plum Passion



It's nasty out there! Cold, windy and miserable - not a good day to make beads! And so, in best Blue Peter tradition - here's one I made earlier.
I love making chain maille, and this delicate Jens Pind weave makes a perfect chain for some little lampwork beads. Thanks to my friends, George, designedbygeorge and Lynne, The Dragonfly Company for all the good advice - let's just say I'm not the quickest learner!!

Hi Izzy, beautiful necklace. I'm another fan of the lampwork and chain maille combo - a match made in heaven.
