I overdid it on the charms

I made way too many of them. I am still putting together the tiny domino and wire swirly ones. I was home yesterday with my daughter. She has a cough, so we just hung out and I made charms while we watched TV and while she was napping. The picture is kind of dark because I did it on the scanner. It looks great in real life. You can click on the pict for a bigger view.

The charms are being done for 3 charm swaps that I am in right now. I am in one with my group, Art Techniques , one from the Charm Swaps Group, and one from Dawn Sellers I have done only a few swaps this year because I have been so busy with my family and school. I also wanted to concentrate on creating art for my exhibit with 3 other women that is going on at Artful Gatherings right now!

I also have a sampling of the polymer clay ones that I made and baked yesterday. I made wwaaayyy to many of those. I am waiting for the glaze to fully dry before I make a charm bracelet out of those. I think that I will make that charm bracelet with a copper/silver chain instead of beads.

I made the charm bracelet this morning. Yes, I have a small wrist. I am loving the chunky bracelets lately. The charms just add to them. My kids at school can hear me coming down the hall. I am not sure that is a good thing. Please feel free to comment.

The bracelet looks good but truthfully I'd add even more charms - 2 to 4 to a "joint". You can NEVER have too many you know!
