Charmed with Charming Charms

These are 4 of the 20 charms I made for a group charm swap. The theme was supposed to be Zetti, which can be interpreted in so many ways, but it usually about some black and white contrast, or stripes, in the style of artist Teesha Moore. So my take was to use dominoes as my base, then I glued some fab Japanese paper on the back of the domino and Mod Podged it so it would be shiny. Then I used some copper wire and wrapped the domino around the edges, then twisted and curlicued it on top of the paper, adding some beads along the way. The wire is looped at the top of the domino so it can be attached to a bracelet or whatever. I was very pleased with how these turned out.

these are marvy! I'm SO JEALOUS!

Look, I wasn't a jealous person until you, Renaissance Mommy, came along. Now, you make things with pockets, with secret doors, with buttons, with flaps, with things that don't belong where you think they would, with wires that seem to hold on in mid-air, I mean, COME ON, woman!

I think I'm too cranky now to read the rest of your posts.
