Charmed!


Isn't it nice that someone decided to declare today International Charm Day just when I've been working on some charm sized porcelain pieces! Here's a little sampling of some of the pieces I fired on Sunday. They are all about 3/4" size and light weight. I've made them in pairs thinking they'd be great for earings. In fact some of these are getting made up, by me, sloooow jewelry maker, for the Arts Festival and another event coming up. BTW these little buggers are the devil to photograph. So tiny, so slippery, so uncooperative in my experiments with props. There are more but I just couldn't bring myself to photograph them.

Cloudy and cool.....I'm off to find my blankey and the tellie.

Cheers, LeAnn

LeAnn, I like all your charms!! But the green with the little leaf stamp is my favorite. www.prairieemporium.com

Hey Leann! Maybe you could stand them in a dish of sand in order to control their unrulyness while being photographed.

All so so cute and wonderful! My favorite is the Japanese lettered ones for some reason, I love them now that I get to see the glaze!

Ooooh! They are so cute...very charming! I use double sticky poster tape to stand stuff up. It works pretty well and is easy to hide.

I love them! I love making earrings - the most fun thing to make, I think!

Thanks all. These are quite fun to make.
Cristi, the sand idea is great. And Doreen I've been wondering what you could possibly use doube side sticky tape for. Now I know. I'll have to give that a try too.
