My favourite buy has to be some vintage charms and cameos. I should have something to show you soon.
With some of my 'stash' I made some lovely beaded rings and a loaded charm bracelet. Charm bracelets are so fun to make I love packing the chain with unusual, interesting bits and bobs.
Here are some examples all of which are listed on my website with more details http://www.fraggiesfripperies.co.uk/
Apologies for the photo quality, something isnt working properly - what? I have no idea :)
