Swap / Meet

For the past few months my Etsy MetalClay teammates and I have been working on making charms for a team swap. 25 people took part and made two extra charms each. One for themselves and one for a bracelet to be donated to charity. Making 27 identical charms each is not an easy task. And everybody managed to design stunning and original pieces! Thank you all so much.


Charms were due to be mailed and compiled on the 15th, but some folks were a little late (*ducks head and tries to hide*) so the anticipation built and built until this weekend when we all received a box o' treasure in the mail!!


Aren't they all fabulous? Too hard to pic favorites. Thank goodness I don't have to. I love being able to hold and fondle all of these beauties. Makes me feel closer to my global team mates.

We are a talented bunch, aren't we? I love the one I got from you... oh, and this one, too... and this one...and this one! You're right it's hard to pick a favorite.

The're yummy! I'm trying to figure out which one is your design. The fleur-de-lis? I was visiting Dina Alexander to teach a class when she was making her locks. Such teeny, thin pieces she was working with.

That is such a great idea! I'd think you'd get wonderful inspiration from recieving charms from other artists.
