Charms Bracelets and Bling Charms

Softball Bling Charm Bracelet

When the swaps for Silver Bella were posted in June I was just giddy with excitement. Swaps for me are way more than just the creative out let that they are for some. Especially Silver Bella Swaps. They are a way to connect with new and old friends. Kind of like a reunion. I jumped at the chance to be in Cheryl Stoneham's Vintage Bling Charm Bracelet Swap. These are my charms. We were instructed to make 20 vintage bling charms to be no bigger than 2 inches. Mine fit right in the 1 inch square on my measuring mat. I really like their size. I got the burled wooden vintage circles from Stampington and pardon me, but the photo just doesn't do the wood justice. It is gorgeous. Don't you just love the star? They are each a little different. And I like that. Here is what I did. First, I silver soldered around them. You certainly wouldn't have had to do this, because you could have easily added an eye hook for charm bracelet attachment.but silver soldering is what I do.and I really like the way the jump ring is attached. Then I went to town on all my vintage necklaces.dissecting them if you will. The neat part about them is that they are all just a little different. Some have round rhinestones.some have emerald cut rhinestones.some have princess cut. I especially love the ones with the round and the emerald cut rhinestones. Part of the directions for the swap were to include a charm bracelet of your choice and Cheryl will add each of the charms. I can't wait to receive my one of a kind bracelet at Silver Bella in November.

WASHINGTON - A New Jersey company is recalling about 2.8 million metal charms sold at Michaels Stores and other arts and crafts retailers because they contain high levels of lead, the government said Thursday.
The recall was prompted by reports that a 6-year-old girl from San Jose, Calif., apparently suffered lead poisoning in December after placing in her mouth a charm she wore as a necklace, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (news - web sites) said
