Jewellery workshop update and a winner!

1st off all the winners of the By The Cute And Girly October blog hop have been announced.  The full list is available on the challenge blog, but I can confirm that the winner of my draw for a £10 gift certificate for Joanna Sheen's store is ORIT!  Joanna offers free worldwide shipping on the majority of the items she sells, so happy spending!  Orit please contact Lora by email to claim your prize (if you haven't already), full details of how and where to claim prizes are on the challenge blog.

Now onto the jewellery.  I was asked to run a jewellery class at a local church earlier in the year as part of a programme of social events for the parents at their very busy toddler group.  It must have gone well as I have been asked back!  This time around I have managed to acquire a few extra tools and I'm adding some more samples to the jewellery packs available on the night as I will have some participants from the previous class as well as, hopefully, some new faces.

Here's a sample that I made up for a bracelet that can have additional charms added to the links.
I love these acrylic beads that have a fabulous iridescent sheen, they are called Elements and are from The Beadery range.  I'd like to enter this one for challenge #82 at Cooking It Up With Katie as she is having an 'anything but a card' week.
This is my box of packs made up and ready to go, I just need to add a few more.
On the bottom right is a necklace/bracelet that I've designed.  It can be worn as a charm necklace or wrapped several times around the wrist to give a multiple friendship bracelet look.  I have tried to take a picture of it in action and totally failed, I will have another try later!

That's a lovely bracelet, Kate. I've only just found you on my blog, so I came to visit. I didn't know you were doing jewellery classes .
