When I was making Laura's fabric birthday card I decided to add some beaded charms attached to a glass ring as an embellishment. I also made some beaded charms on Sunday to attach to a twine bow on one of my butterfly cards. In the interest of clearing off my craft table, I decided to make a few more so that I would have some ready for other projects. I had a bunch of really ugly beaded cluster earrings that came in a flea market lot of vintage jewelry. I decided to cut them apart to repurpose the beads. Some of the prettiest beads on these charms (middle row) came from those earrings that I almost threw away. I used a really tiny wooden spool to make the charm on the upper left. I found some red and green glass drops to use with Christmas charms (lower left).
Thanks for looking. I really appreciate your comments.
