Wow. Just wow! The charm swap package arrived and I couldn't wait to assemble my bracelet. I used some bulk sterling silver chunky byzantine chain which I oxidized and added a great big lobster claw clasp for security. It took me hours to arrange the charms so that the finished bracelet would look balanced in terms of sizes, colors, shapes and textures ... but here it is! (My own charm, round in shape with a texture of waves and a seashell showing, is at approximately 5 o'clock in the final photo.)
What a fabulously talented group of women! Just look at the amazing creativity and works of art represented here. I will cherish this bracelet for the rest of my life. Two additional bracelets are being assembled for donation to worthy charities.
Thank you to all my wonderful friends on the Etsy MetalClay Team!
