|Brooch 11 (from last week)|
Yep, Charms were due Saturday and I started Friday! I'm the queen of procrastination. By Saturday afternoon I had all my parts and pieces ready to go! Jump rings made, tubing for rivets cut, tubing for spacers cut, texture applied to ovals, and holes drilled!
|Charm Swap 11 parts|
Next, I applied a patina, distressed the patina, waxed each part, riveted them together, made a new batch of jump rings because the first was to small, and walla:

I love all the possibilities for this charm! I even made a few extra to put in my Etsy Shop.
