If an accessory is not big and beady this year it has to be pretty and vintage. So we have come up with this lovely antique gold necklace kit, laden with little charms and finished with millifiore beads to decorate the chain.
Make something similar using the antique gold figaro chain and a collection of lightweight charms and beads mixed with stampings.
Here is a neat way to use up all your bead odds and ends. Make a pretty beaded kilt pin! You can mix and match your beads as long as you do it with style.
