What colour will you make?  Pale interesting pastel blue/grey, traditional red or a subtle pale gold using the new Swarovski Crystal Platinum Pearl!

Over 50 lucky people chose to make this fabulous tassel as a Seasonal Skill Workshop at the Handmade Fair and went off with a complimentary tool kit courtesy of I-Beads! Which colour will you make? Buy your kits here: www.i-beads.co.uk
