What I did with my Charms....

Hi All!

I hope you all had a wonderful extended weekend here in the states.  To those of you around the world...hope it was a great weekend and Monday for you all.

A few people have asked to see what I have done with the charms from the two charm swaps that are pages in history now.

I make a charm/pin combo for each and every set of charms made so I have one of each charm in both swaps.  To be honest the first set of charms sat in a box until a couple weeks ago.  At that time I combined, sorted and fixed up pins and necklaces using the charms from both!   I am so tickled... I have 4 themed pins and 3 themed necklaces (only 2 shown here) and I've got a set of halloween-ish charms I am going to be using for a 5th pin but I wanted to make a few charms to add to the mix since I don't have quite enough to fill out the pin.

So, here you go....  I have no clue who made what anymore but if you post a question in the comments maybe the creator will answer for you :)

Red Pin -

Mixed Media Charm Jewelry 003

Bird Pin -

Mixed Media Charm Jewelry 001

Nature Lover Pin -

Mixed Media Charm Jewelry 004

Girlie Girl Pin -

Mixed Media Charm Jewelry 005

And here are the necklaces I made. I am working on a pink/purple necklace but I miscalculated and have to rearrange it all so they are in the correct size order. I'll share that at a later date.

I LOVE Blue Necklace -
Mmmmm, don't you just love all that blue goodness!!!

Mixed Media Charm Jewelry 006

Copper Steampunk Necklace -
I so cannot wait to wear this somewhere. It's the first necklace I've made for myself that has multiple chains/tiers like this.

Now, I had meant to give this pin away right after the Charm Swap was over but well, things got in the way so I thought now would be the perfect time to give it away!

So, if you'd like a chance at winning this mixed media altered charm pin all you have to do is post a comment about which pin/necklace you like best.

You'll have until my Dad's b-day - September 21st to post your comment!

Good Luck Everyone!!!

  2. Roni,
    I knew you would do something great with the charms. I love all the pieces, but your layered necklace is Awesome. I'd be honored to wear your pin if I were to win your drawing. Shari (cricutrookie)

  3. I love them all, but it is a toss up between the necklaces, I love blue and I love steam punk. Hold on while I toss a coin, heads its blue and heads it is. Though the steam punk necklace must look spectacular on.
    Thank for the chance to win the steam punk brooch.

  35. OH gosh Roni... all your pins and necklaces are incredible!!! Just absolutely gorgeous!! It was super fun to see one of my charms on your blue necklace. I think the other you are saving for a game-themed pin... it was the shrinky monopoly money hanging on a penny. I also enjoyed seeing charms that I received in the most recent swap... they are all so cool.

    It's too tough to pick just one favorite!! LOL They are all different and look great! But I really like the layered necklace... maybe because it has so many charms and must look spectacular on! I'd be super happy with any of them! Thanks for the chance to win the steampunk pin... it's wonderful too!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love what you did with them all, Iwould be happy with any of them! I love the layered one. This was an awesome swap and I would love to win.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have to agree with everyone else. They are all gorgeous. My three favorites, since I can't pick just one, are the blue necklace, the Girly Girl, and the red one. I bet all of them will be quite the conversation pieces when you wear them!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You did an AWESOME job on all of these. I like the Girly Girl. Love the style and how you put it all together. Great Job!!

  39. Oh my!!! I'm sorry but I can't pick just one!!! I would have to say my favorite is the steampunk...then the bird's nest...girly girl...and well, ALL of them! You did an awsome job with your charms! I would be in my glory to be wearing any of them! Thanks for the chance to win;)))

  40. You have been busy Miss Roni! I love blue however I am smitten with steampunk and adore copper so that one has to be my favorite you made. Your steampunk pin is super fun. You are the best my dear...

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's been since last May that i was able to check your blog on a regular basis. I'm so excited to get back to you. I am becoming more intrigued by the Steampunk look, so I'll cast my vote their.

    ReplyDelete
  42. OMGosh, they're all fantastic, but if I had to choose it'd be the copper steampunk, just b/c I'm a copper freak.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I especially love the red charm at the top of the post as it is so vibrant ( and not just because it also includes one of my charms ... honest!)
    However the pin you are offering is a great prize and very desirable and only marginally my second fave! in face they are all amazing.Thanks for the chance of your generous offer!
    Love JoZarty x

  44. I'm crazy about the steampunk necklace. I love copper and the steampunk theme blends so well with the copper color. What a talented bunch of artists you have swapped with. The necklace is awesome, and I would dearly love to win the speampunk themed pin. Thanks for the chance to win.

  45. Wow! They are all wonderful! I had to go back and look at the photos several times they were so awesome! I have loved charms since I was a little girl (charms were nothing like this, of course), and I love them even more today.

    If it is not too late to put my name in the drawing, please do. I would love a chance! To all of the artists: You are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I forgot to post my favorite: Each piece makes you want to say "I would love to have that," but I guess my fav is the steampunk necklace. I chose it because I love steampunk and the multiple layers make it an awesome piece of jewelry!

  50. I think my favorite is either the red pin or the one you are giving away. I like the necklaces, but I would be staring at your chest for an awkward period of time if you wore it around me, so I'll stick with the pins LOL!
