Don't forget the purpose of this exchange - two extra charms from each swapper (there were 31 of us!) are being used to make bracelets to be auctioned off to benefit the Komen Foundation. Also, you can buy entries to win the art doll Love Squared, which is truly an amazing and one-of-a-kind never-to-be-duplicated work of art. Your entry equals a donation to the search for a cure for breast cancer. What could be better than that??
So, now Amber is hosting a black and white charm exchange and I seem to have caught the bug. Below are some of the caps that I made while I was coming up with samples to share with Amber. I am thrilled that she liked them and has accepted them into the swap!!! The true black and white color scheme is really quite striking.
While I was playing around with the color scheme, I also created this charm. It is 2" long, which is a bit too large for the swap, and it was very labor intensive, but I just love how it came out! In fact, I have just hung it from the charm that you see in the top center of the photo above and with a little more bling (TBD), I think I will hang it on my Christmas tree!
