Beaded Charm Bag with Swarovski
Miniature Charm Bag: Blue + White (CC47)
I started playing around with making miniature "things" recently. One of these "things" turned out to be miniature charm bags. First I tried working with any old seed beads I had but quickly found that you need very precise and consistently sized beads to make the little miniatures really work.
This little miniature bag is done in Swarovski 5328 XILION bicone beads and Swarovski 5810 pearls. And for the really small bits, I used Czech Metallic Copper seed beads.
I have am also showing the picture of the second miniature Swarovski charm bag done in Copper Czech seed beads (sz 11), Swarovski 5301 White Alabaster and White Alabaster AB bicones (4mm), and Swarovski 5810 Antique Bronze pearls (3mm). This second miniature is no longer available as I gave it away to a lovely lady named Joyce.
Totally Unique:All my designs are one-offs as often I cannot repeat the process because the ideas and the materials come together much of their own volition than of deliberate planning. So you can always be assured of detailed and unique creations.
Happy Thoughts: All ClearlyChosen Handmades are made with tons of love and happy thoughts with the belief that these will go into the world, secure in the safety and confidence of getting more of the same and being able to share that with its rightful owner.
