Designer Christmas Tree Charms

I've been working on a really fun little project this weekend: making "jewellery" to decorate a little Ikea twig tree! These charms are not quite jewellery but they are definitely more than your average Christmas tree ornaments - I call them Christmas tree charms.

The jewels are cast in resin (with Krafty Lady art moulds), and combined with cloisonné beads and Swarovski crystals they make chic little mini bracelets hanging on the branches.

Draped with a little bit of tinsel and a battery operated light set, my little designer Christmas tree will make the perfect centre piece for the Christmas dinner table.
