    I realise it's too late, but red/jeweller's brass works well for this sort of thing (and tarnishes far less than copper). Alternatively, I've had good results using single hole gold beads. Carefully...

    Yes, our National Health Service is amazing for emergencies and critical care, but on its knees in just about every other regard right now.

    Thanks for the warning! I watched at half speed (just change it in settings at the bottom of the youtube screen) and enjoyed it. I'm impressed at how effortless it's made to look.

    I think that's very stylish Caroline - definitely wear it more.
