Amber D. recently offered a new year's surprise through the International Artistic Charms Yahoo Group which she moderates. The challenge was to create a glitzy charm and post a photo on the web site.
I love creating charms. I made an art piece I called Evolution. The watch piece, the shark's tooth, a shell, and the face to represent, "We should never have left the ocean!" (I am not an evolutionist in faith.)
Amber placed the names of everyone that participated in the contest. She drew my name!!!
I received three gift bags full to the brim with glass beads, flatback rhinestones, and Swarovski stones. I also received a wonderful charm created by Amber. It was a delight!
I am embroidering valentine hearts filled with fresh lavendar for friends and family. I am selling a few at a craft show too. This photo displays my hearts, AND notice the nice size flat-back rhineston on each one. Thank you Amber.
