Celtic Snowballs

A hurried project for an ATC (Artist's
Trading Cards) group meet in two days.
I was to make a Winter Charm
I had no idea what to make And hadn't done
any loaded charm bracelets for a
couple years.
It was like beginning all over--real
dah moments for sure...
I have collected much I have hunted for
in barn sales and lots
of vintage jewelry
to look through
This is like looking over
buried treasure for me.
I did have all the tools necessary
and there are many which
might surprise some people... three
special wire tools, spacers, and Celtic
ones I especially like---extra long
wire to string them, special lying pad
to keep everything from rolling off
the table--
and to make
a nice finish, make a label and
insert in small bag ......Voila!
I am thankful I only have to make
nine of them.

I am so glad you are back! A link to your blog has been sitting around on mine waiting for action, but I've not really been around for the last two weeks, so I missed your reentry into the blogosphere. I love your painting with the fish and with the fish you designed and jewelry too, you are truly multi-talented! Hope to see much more!
