charm making in my studio

my saw and copper wire


jump rings wating to be sawed



I am hosting a charm swap with the most amazing group of 25 mixed media artist!
and today I started a blog where we will show case all the charms, but as the swap is now just about completed, and I wait for just one more set of charms, it was time for me to make my charms for the swap :) the light was streaming into my studio onto my jewelry work bench as I was sawing the jumprings that will connect my etch heart charms with dangling turquoise and garnets, it made me remember that I truly do love to create jewelry, and all the work and all the tiny details that only another jewelry maker could ever understand are worth it!

Beautiful Charms- I LOVE the copper! What kind of copper stock did you use & how did you cut the hearts? Is it thin enough to use a die cut machine? Thanks for the wonderful directions, this is something I most definitely want to try

Thanks

Stacie
