Charmed, I'm Sure......

.....I decided I wanted to make some charms to participate in the Charm Swap over at "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" magazine. http://quiltingarts.com/cpsmag/cpshome.html

Here is the info if you are interested:

"Love making charms? Join the Cloth Paper Scissors Charm Swap! It’s easy:

1) Create up to five original charms, 1½" in diameter or smaller.

2) Attach a jump ring to each one.

3) Send your charms, a SASE, and your entry fee, $5, to our offices no later than April 13, 2009.

We’ll swap your charms with some made by other artists and return them to you by June 1, 2009. You’ll receive the same number of charms you sent in."


I made mine using Scrabble Tiles, drilled with my dremel. The tiles are collaged with bits of vintage ephemera and gel medium transfers.

The images are from http://www.paperimagerydesigns.com/. I embellished them with 24 gauge silver or copper wire and faceted crystal beads. They are edged with a copper leafing pen and finished with Krylon triple thick glaze. I think they turned out good for my first try at Scrabble Tile Charms. Thanks to my friend Angie for her constant inspiration and for still loving me when I ninjaed her idea!! :)
