Speaking of charmed...I want to thank each and every one of you who left me such wonderful words of encouragement and sent up prayers for me and my Dad. Our days are looking brighter thanks to your sweet comments!!! Oh how I just love you!!!!
In the midst of all my chaos, the only place that I could hide to get my mind off of the day was in my studio. I've been plugging away at my swaps, one by one and I was quite productive indeed.
Above is a sneak peek of the wonderful pouch Sandy made for each of our bracelets. She hosted a charm bracelet swap where 11 of us had to make a charm for each other, add it to each charm bracelet and then send them on to the next person. Lucky me, I was number 10 out of 11 and was able to see them almost completed. I made the Paris charms above and sent them on to the last recipient earlier in the week.
Just beautiful I tell ya! I can't wait to get my bracelet back. This was a great group of girls to play with. Hopefully when I receive my bracelet back for good, I will post about it again with detailed links to each participant. They are oh so talented, it was an honor to swap with them!
My whole dining room table was so "charming", I really hated to box it all up and send it off...
It was hard but I managed :)
Many thanks goes to Sandy for hosting the 1st Annual Jewelry Collaborative Charm Swap and thanks to all of the wonderful artists who participated!!!
