Pile on the PINK

Do you remember the gorgeous doll, "Love Squared", which will be auctioned off to support the Komen Foundation? Well, through my friend Elizabeth's blog, I learned about the Think Pink Charm Swap, and I thought it sounded like fun. You make a dozen charms for the swap. You get 10 back and the other two are combined with charms from other artists and the jewelry will be auctioned off for the Komen Foundation. How could I resist?

Of course it will come as a HUGE surprise that I made bottlecap charms. Above is a photo of them all packaged up and ready to go. Below is a photo of some of the individual charms. I forgot to make one for myself, so I'll have to do that. It was fun to focus on pink and I tried to choose words that would be inspirational. I hope the recipients enjoy them. I can't wait to see the jewelry! I'll keep you posted on the auction as the time nears.
