My friend has a key stuck in a lock. It will turn but won't come out. She asked me to make a dangly something to hang from the naughty key. Sue already has a woven copper piece made for her birthday a couple of years ago, so I decided to incorporate copper into the tassel.
I strung the beads onto beading thread and used needle weaving to make the loop. Time will tell whether it is strong enough to withstand handling. I will report back if it falls apart.
I delivered presents to my in-laws yesterday. Today I got a phone call telling me that they have opened them. Who needs kids when you have parents like these? Anyway they like their stuff, I think their favorite gift was the clockwork racing snails. They are already bickering over who gets to eat the caramel nougat bars:) Wonderful people are buying me a sink to put into my new workshop for christmas.
