Twinkle & Twins - Miss Mandas Christmas Vintage & Craft Fair, Durham City

Twinkle & Twins - 12 mm rivoli
Twinkle & Twins - double layer - 12 mm chaton

Twinkle & Twins started to take shape six months ago - the component formed a star within the four seasons winter challenge.  I recently revisited the concept for the OTTBS September Challenge - creating a star design that works well as a decoration, pendant or component.

Twinkle & Twins - 8 mm rivoli
The design has given me the opportunity to tackle my vintage stash - ahead of my next event at Durham Town Hall - 1st November 2014 - doors open at 10am.
