BOC Art Charm Swap



I am so sorry that I am running behind.  As I said earlier, I was having technical difficulties and I wasn't able to access any of my pictures.  Thank goodness that has been resolved.

One of the hops I look forward to every year is this one as it is so much fun and benefits such a great cause, Beads of Courage.  As part of the swap, each of us makes up an extra charm which then gets auctioned off and donated.  And boy are there some gorgeous charms!  I have just been drooling over them so be sure to click here to bid on these awesome works of art.

Now this is where I normally get wordy but since I am posting this so late, I will let my charm pretty much speak for itself.  It is pretty tattered but doesn't all hearts that are open to love subject to that?

Also be sure to check out all the other charms and the story behind them.

  6. I love how your charm catches the eye, Shaiha! The frame was a beautiful choice and I love the sparkle of the clay and the CZ. I'm sorry your technical difficulties kept you from telling us more about your inspiration and process! I would have loved to read about it! :) - Julie
