These are my favourite scissors. They are Leah from the Gingher Designer series. I know it's hard to see the detail, but they are the most beautiful purple roses with green leaves. For the fob I used a lavender glass seed bead, purple swarovski crystals and a leaf green bead. The centre is a swarovski ball and the end is a bobbin that I threaded some purple DMC thread on.
The fob is swarovski amethyst and light purple, with a smoky rose bead in the middle. The end is a swarovski heart.
I really enjoy making fobs, and I've made them for all of my friends in my stitching circle. Although they do run a tad on the expensive side to make, the crystals really catch the light and make for a stunning outcome.
And that's it. I do think my Gingher collecting is at it's end, so my Visa (and my husband) can relax. But who knows. Gingher puts out 2 new designs a year, and down the road there may be a pattern that I simply must have. And of course, it will have to have its own fob!
Perhaps I had better not put the Visa away just yet....
