Charms Ahoy

I am both hosting and participating in charm swaps at the moment. These two designs are, I think, my final choices - they better be, I have nine and ten of each. I do find myself playing with wire more and more.

The cat charm uses the head of a Krafty Lady cat mold and is framed in some bracelet blanks. The vision charms are pinata alcohol inks on scrabble tiles.

These are absolutely gorgeous! I admire you so. I haven't ventured into this sort of assemblage/mixed media yet. Looks like so much fun!

These are great! I've never done anything like this. I looks rather intimidating!

They are fabulous Julie! I think I am one of your charm swaps (the one with Kim). Didn't know you were running one yourself. Am sure every one will love the finished product :)

Not sure which one I like best. The cat one is gorgeous but the other one is equally gorgeous!

Always find inspiration here.

Thank you so much!

No, not soldering yet - at least not for display, my practice attempts are dismal.

These were fun to make!

Yes Dotee, one of these, vision, is for Kim's swap - I am so glad to be in it with you. Over a glass of wine one night a couple of us were inspired to have a West Australian charm swap.
