    There is a company called Spellbound Beads http://www.spellboundbead.co.uk/c/1579/Bauble-Kits sell kits for similar decorations. Not sure if they have ever brought them to C & C, but I have seen them at Harrogate in November. I have one of their kits to make up too, plus a pair of Christmas pudding earrings that I want to use on my 18" tree. It is too small for the average decorations, the tree that is, so I buy it at least one pair of earrings each year. In the early days I bought it four glass baubles from a garden centre, very delicate they are, but lovely. I also bought a set of pearlised ones in Germany, though they are a tad boring, so don't use them now.

    However, all though my daughter obviously likes it she "can't see people hanging it on their Christmas tree" i.e., - don't make me one mum! I make most of the family quilted or folded star Christmas decorations every Christmas and they are much requested (there's a whole board of them on my Pinterest site if you don't know what I mean) but this seems to be too ... I have no idea but definitely not what they want. I, on the other hand am enjoying making it and was going to do some designs of my own - rather less regal than this and perhaps more Victorian but now do not know where I can take this.

    Do you think there is something I could do that would appeal to the younger more, perhaps, country, rustic, shabby chic generation. All comments gratefully received!

    The only reason I wouldn't hang it on my tree is that we have all felt ornaments. I would totally use it, though, as a decoration on a mantel, in a window, etc.!
