2014 Art Charm Exchange

I am happy to be participating again in the art charm exchange and auction to benefit
Beads of Courage.  This year the theme was "SOAR" and that we did!  I love the element
 of surprise when the box holding the charms arrives in the mail.  I made a double batch of
 charms so I would receive even more charms in return!
This is what I received!  Aren't they great?  My art charms were made by
Toltec Jewels, Susan Delphine Delaney, Cassi Paslick, Nan Smith, Monique Urquhart,
 Cianci Blue,  Caroline at Blue Berri Beads, Terri Del Signore, Culturezine, Jami Shipp,
Sue Beads, Windbent, Lesley Watt, Silver Niknats, Nancy Dale, Melissa
 Trudinger and Jenny Davies-Reazor.
I designed a blue ceramic bird charm with a heart wing, the word "SOAR", with it
flying high above the clouds.  I made this necklace with it:
To raise money for Beads of Courage, our wonderful hostess, Jennifer Cameron,
photographs and lists art charms on ebay to be auctioned off.  Please visit the listings at
Please hop around all the participating artist blogs to see and learn more about the wonderful art charms created...all for a great cause!
