Crystal Charm Pendant / Crazy Busy

Goodness me, has it really been so long since I last posted here?! 
I have been (and still am) crazy busy and blogging has really been put on the back-burner! 
Luckily I have a couple of ready-prepared posts, and five minutes to post one :)

Back in December, I went to a Christmas fair at the village centre. There was an abundance of stalls selling all kinds of things! One particular stall was half covered in crystals and half in collectibles, and it was there that I saw the craft bargain of the century...

A bowlful of small pieces of crystal, for just £4.
I instantly thought of all the things I could make with those crystals and couldn’t hand over the money fast enough!
In a crystals shop, those pieces would probably cost 50p-£1 each, so I wasn’t going to turn away at the prospect of spending £4 on them!

I’ve only done a little crafting so far, but easily churned out these wrapped crystal charm pendants!

Want to make one too?

The method is practically the same as my agate necklace.

Simply wrap the crystal as described in the agate neclace tutorial, and fix on a charm using a jump ring and flat nosed pliers.

To add beads, slide them on during the process of wrapping (as described in my post on crystal wrapping techniques)

Yet again this was a cheap project, but again would make a great little gift!

Will link up at the parties listed below (provided I get the time!)
