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?

Sure Moira! Count me in!
What kind of metal?

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'm in....sounds like a fun challenge with the larger size...
do I send it right to you?
Yes, you can send them right to me ... pop me an email through here if you need my address
Count me in Moira... Will make a beaded bead for you Moira... though I can't really promise when will I mail it. My hands are full til mid-October...
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!!
Glad Cat asked that....and glad to see I was on the right track with what I was planning.....
after looking at that link.....
