While there have been a couple of charm bracelets on here, I've sort of taken that idea and run with it. I wanted to do a Pandora bracelet that makes me think of all of my bead buddies!

So what I'm asking for is a beaded bead or a charm from anyone who wants to contribute, and the catch is that it needs to fit around a 4mm chain. Anyone interested?

that's a really good question, Cat

Why don't I make it easy for everyone and say silver plated. But that doesn't need to be a rule ... I love mixing metals.

Moira I have some ideas of what to make but just want to clarify first- Do you want a pandora style bead  or do you want charms? I'm assuming you are putting them on a 4mm snake chain??? so the loop (if making a charm) will need to be slightly larger than that?

Just want to make sure!

Cat, I'm happy with beads or charms, and you're right. I'm going to make a 4mm rope chain.

Pandora charms tend to be basically like the beads, only they have a loop to dangle something from - here's an idea of what they look like:

although I'm quite happy with ones made from wire, for instance (I was going to make a couple of simple coiled wires to use as spacers) - but seeing as you have a new dapping set to play with you can do something hollow formed, if that's easier!!
