i thought 40s to 70s perhaps incorrectly, have googled and found this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retro_style

1920s maybe called art deco or vintage?

I see it as vintage adverts, 50s and 60s but it can be of any era can't it?

Lovely card and image Liz. xx
I just interpreted as a previous era as I was struggling for images and beeds. Flapper just sprang to mind.

This is a bracelet I made. It is a lovely sparkly one but that doesn't show. It is also purple and silver although it looks much darker.

Wow that it's so pretty. How do you fix it to the ends.

You thread the beads then insert the wire into a crimp bead. The wire then goes through the end and back through the crimp. Then you squash the crimp bead which holds the wire. Thread the left over wire back through the beads and cut off the end. Easy peasy!

I have attempted a pair a beady earrings, not Retro though.

Carolyn, why are my pics so HUGE when I try loading them onto the thread?

Pics on my blog, sorry.

I assume your pictures are really big when you upload them to blogger, so they will always be big.

I don't think it really matters if it's retro or not, it's a fun card and it's lovely to see our creations. :clapclap:
