Today is the reveal day for the Charm Swap with a Twist hosted by Jennifer Cameron of Glass Addictions. This twist is that 2 sets of charms will be auctioned on ebay (set one here and set two here) for Beads of Courage. I was thrilled to participate in this swap with these amazing bead artists. In fact, when I opened the swap package I immediately felt like I was in a little bit over my head. Jonathan (my 20 year old son) was with me and was amazed, too. He said, "Mom, you really should start working with glass. Those beads are amazing." As you can see, he was right. As for my inspiration, whimsy was my inspiration and that's exactly what I call the beads that I used to create my charms. Whimsy. I coupled my polymer bead with a little glass star and a crystal to match. A little wrap and voila.
Please head over to the other artists blogs to see more of these lovely charms. And, if you'd like a set of your own, they can be yours while contributing to an amazing cause. Get to clicking.
