Remember all those charm swaps that were happening? (maybe they still are, I'm usually a dollar short and a day late). I was a participant and collected many charms. I even made a special box to hold them. Well, I figured it out. I needed to make some artsy gifts for my artsy friends in the Yaya club for Christmas - so why not put those charms to good use.
I surfed over to SkyBluePink (favorite vendor), and found some great bracelet chains and a sample that looked pretty easy to follow. Since I am not a jeweler type, this was a learning experience. They're finished and I messed up more jump rings than you can imagine BUT after finishing the last one, my jewelry skills improved. Practice does make perfect.
The plastic bracelets are from a garage sale find. I covered them with alcohol inks and gold leafing. They turned out pretty cool.
Ho Ho Ho
