Charms & More Teesha


Thought I'd share something different with you today, so here's a peek at a few of the charms I made recently for my art group's "charm swap".


We could make up to ten charms, and there was no limit on materials, etc. that could be used.


Since this was my first time doing anything like this, I thought I'd try a few different techniques including, using Diamond Glaze over images, words glued to wooden shapes, polymer clay, crystals, pearls, beads and tiny silver charms.


I DID find that I have great respect for jewelry artists! Working with tiny pieces and large implements is quite a challenge!

More Teesha!

May you have a charming day!

Wow, this is your first go at making charms? I think they are amazing Terri, I love how you have put so much detail into them, just like all of your work, they are beautiful :)

I also have great respect for jewelry artists, I find it very hard working with tiny pieces of wire etc.
