Ha! It's great Kat. It does have charm and would make a great charm itself. On a handbag or similar.
I haven't put an ounce of thought into this challenge so far other than the couple of sugestions I made early on, but if it continues pississtantly raining ( Embarassed ) this weekend I may get a chance to try something out.

Percy pig is a real star and I love the kumihimo braid. The bail in particular is very clever and effective.

Lowrie as in the Manchester artist, who painted the matchstick men and cats and dogs.
Loving that Lynne, especially the curly bail is a nice touch!

Heres my entry. I was thinking polymer lambs but it just didn't work out. So I took the oblique route.
CROP CIRCLES.
Copper Egyptian spiral chain, joined to a focal of double spiral wire work that has a black glass square bead at the centre. Hematite beads and a commercially bought toggle clasp.
