~*A SNEAK PEEK INTO MY CHARM PRODUCTION!*~ Click on the images for a much closer view! Below are 4 pictures of some of the charms that I am making for 3 charm exchanges. I am keeping it a secret as to who's group gets which charms.
These are the simpler ones that I am making.
I have a few that are complicated and very detailed.
Since I have been making these charms, I have been MUCH happier.
I really miss using my hands to create tiny works of art.
It has been TOO long!

Shown here- Metal Alphabet tags to the left, stamped with ink, painted with acrylics, and sealed with gloss. Believe in miracles, is a two part shrink plastic charm. The clown ladies are hand painted shrink plastic charms embellished with a rhinestone nose. Above are fancy linoleum tile charms that have just been cut and drilled. I will be sanding them down, and adding embellishments. In the center is a mini vile ready to be finished with a new topper that I invented just for this piece.

These are snaps that are riveted, and I added a copper link component and a brass jumpring.
