charmed, i'm sure
The EtsyMetalClay team held a charm swap. Here is my contribution, doesn't it look like a tapestry of goodness? These are made from BronzClay, mixed-media collage and resin. I love this type of collaboration, I'm so lucky to be involved with such a talented group of people and I'm anticipating the lovely pieces of art to arrive next week. Today, was the due date! Finally received my jumprings, so Teresa, they are in the mail.
What I especially love, is the team all agreed to make one extra charm that will be used to create a charm bracelet that will be donated to a charity. The Andruzzi Foundation is the charity we chose. They have a live auction to raise money and the proceeds to use towards cancer research, which is dear many hearts in the group.
But I also wanted to thank all you that read my posts and have encouraged me along the way. So I would like to give a similar charm to a few lucky readers as a token of my appreciation.
Here are the Giveaway rules:
1} Please post one comment to this blog, that includes a word that describes your personality, outlook on life or any other word that is meaningful to you. Just be aware that it needs to be pretty short to fit on the half inch charm.
2} give me a color combination and I'll try my best to fit it into the mixed media piece. (ie. cool tones, warm tones, blues, tuscan, neutral) Your charm will have a jump ring so it can be easily added to a charm bracelet or strung on a cord for a necklace.
3} After a week, so next Thursday, I'll will announce the 3 winners. (update: I've been away at a conference, so I'll take entries until Friday at midnight and I'll announce the winners Saturday, September 19)
} One entry per person please ;)
if you are having technical challenges posting, I will except an email note)
Thanks again to everyone. This weekend I'll post the process on how these charms are made. Good luck.
