Charmed I'm sure

So many charms! I seem to have found a love of making little silver charms. One of the local shops that sells my jewelry set up a "Charm Bar". Whitney, the owner of The Muse, set out bowls of brightly colored rice filled with charms. She also has a board with different types of chains available. It's really a fun idea, because you can mix and match the charms you like with a chain. Here is my bowl of Stacie Jewelry charms at The Muse.

I had a great time last week creating silver charms from precious metal clay. Here are a few that I have finished.





I had a few fun charm requests at the last trunk show I did. I had several requests for turtles, an elephant, and a bumble bee. I made the silver for those charms, just have to finish up with the antiquing and polishing. I'll share the finished charming animals when they are done.

The charms are great for necklaces, to add to bracelets or for anklets. They make a great end of the year teacher gift or a graduation gift. If you would like to see more charms and anklets, take a peek at my Etsy shop. I will be adding more charms over the next few weeks to get stocked up for the summer season.

Thanks Monica! The charm bar is really a cool idea. I'll have to take a photo of the rest of the bar next time I visit.
