More Charms

Our ATC group decided to add a little twist to our monthly card swap in June...charms! Each of us made enough charms to swap with each other and an extra one that Beth will make into a necklace to donate to a local charity. It was so much fun seeing what everyone had created. Jo made a fabric purse charm, exquisite in its tiny details. Nadine made a lovely stamped shrink plastic charm with wire work and pearls. Lyneen made a wonderful stacked button charm. Grace added her original water color bird paintings to round discs to create gorgeous pendant charms. Christina made a beautiful charm using shells and beads. Miki made a stunning beaded dangle. Kris treated us to the tiniest of pottery cups and Cathy charmed us all with one of her amazing beveled glass soldered charms. For the last few months we've had the pleasure of meeting at Echo Artworks...Beth's bead (and so much more) shop in Bremerton. Beth is a multi-talented, creative artist who's (along with her pup Pixie) been our gracious hostess. She made an enameled copper ring for each of pretty! She's also offered to take the charms and make them into a necklace or bracelet for us...I can't wait to see how these will turn out! Have a look at our charms....

What a lovely collection of charms! And aren't you a bunch of lucky ducks to have one of your members assemble the charms into a piece of jewelry for you too.
