What on earth got into me?????
Well, pure madness, I know, but, you know how it is, I couldn't say no it sounded way too exciting!
Pamela (I'm not sure if she has a blog) wanted to join in the swap I'm running, and she told me about a swap she is hosting, now that in itself is fine, but it is a charm swap. So of course I had to say yes please to this one! Now of course I have never made a charm before, but hey! I'll give anything a try!
I bought some little tags, they are 1 1/2" long, the exact size. Some jump rings, shell beads, little green plastic tiki's and away I went!
I covered the tags, both sides in alcohol inks, and stamped with Stazon on one side.
Then I used some clear Opals and melted them with the heat gun, adding a couple of layers until it looked like the surface had been enameled. This also sealed the stamp.
Then I added the little shell bead and the tiki. I am now seriously hoping that they are ok!!! I am thinking that 10 of them will go overseas, so they will be a little bit of NZ. What do you think? Would you wear one of these little charms on a bracelet?
WOW! it's Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!
(Oh, and thanks for the comments everyone! I love you for it!)
