just simply charming

(click on the bracelet to veiw true size)
I hosted a charm swap with 25 supper creative mixed media girls!
And we all wanted to share what we did, so I made the group a blog that showcases all of our charms and a little about how we did them, so please take a look :)

Hi Ruth. I discovered you from the Artfest site and all the talk about trading charms. Love the shots of your great studio. Years ago I made jewelry too and those pieces of equipment resonated in my memory.

I love the charms you made (I've etched zinc and copper with nitric acid as a printmaker and have a bottle of ferric chloride in my studio waiting for a trial run). Like you I have had hand problems (solved by a carpal tunnel operation) and changed mediums several times.

Anyway, I love your mixed media work, especially the book page with the door that opens (fabric), the image and all of it. I can see you are very experienced and I just wanted to compliment your work.

Hope we meet at Artfest (my 3rd year).
