Charmed!

Last year my art group did a charm swap; and because we had so much fun, we decided to do it again.

We could make up to twelve charms, and there were no limits regarding the size of the charms or the materials used to make them. The only rule was that each charm had to be handmade.

I tried a few different techniques and materials including using Diamond Glaze over images, words glued to wooden shapes, fancy glass beads, shells, rhinestone findings, crystals, vintage pearls and tiny charms. (You can click on each of the pictures to see the details.) I can't wait to receive my "swaps"!

Hope you have a charming day!

Tumble Fish Studio said...

How was your trip? You can see I am still very behind on blogs - last time I stopped by you were on a vacay. It must have been wonderful for you to come home and make these perfectly scrumptious charms. You make me want to try! They are all so gorgeous. You can do so many things and do them all so well. If you weren't such a sweetheart, I'd be very jealous. (well, I am a little anyway)

gaby braun said...

Love the charms, really great. What materials you used to make them? It's like an acrylic plate.

gaby braun said...

I've read the tutorial for the pendant, I think you used the same materials. I'll try it!Thanks!
