Our Christmas meeting was held at WSCC with lots of good snacks and beautiful jewelry. My charm came from my Transit Series. I made it a little more Christmas like by changing the Swarovski crystal drop to a red or green drop. And I got a chance to play with my new Silhouette machine and make a little envelope to give my charm in. (So far I've only played with paper in the Silhouette. The grandchildren love it.... but that's a whole different post.)
We put all the charms in a basket and everyone drew a charm. The basket was brought around a couple more times until everyone who brought a charm had three charms.
I received charms from (left to right) Carol Scheftic, Sue Varolli, and Sharon Shepard. Carol is a big fan of Hadar Jacobson and does a lot with Hadar's Bronze and copper clays. Sue's piece has sparkly fingernail polish painted into the flower portion of her charm (very clever.) Sharon included a CZ for sparkle.
Over the years I've amassed quite a collection of metal clay charms. I think I'll do what my friend Carol does, hang them all together in my studio to show them off.
In case I don't get to post again before Christmas........ Merry Christmas to all of you (and thanks for reading my blog!)
