What a "charming" weekend!

I worked really hard this weekend on making charms & jewelry for the craft show in November. It is really difficult to determine how much to have at the show since it will be my first. I got a good start but still have lots of work ahead of me. I guess whatever I don't sell will force me to do an Etsy store, one of my long time goals, that I've yet to accomplish.

I made 110 of these Christmas charms so far. I still need to solder them.

I have hours of soldering work to do as I also have a bunch of ear rings ready to solder and put together as well. (I keep making ear rings but then I keep giving them away, guess I need to quit that!) I only have 3 pair ready to sell so far!

I really like how these grungeboard charms have turned out. I added some beads to dress some of them up a bit.

This is a bracelet I linked together.

I have been using up some of my auction finds by attaching charms to the vintage pearl necklaces.
I also took this little wooden pig that was in a box of "junk" from an auction and I made it some wings. Just playing around but he is alittle cutie. I will take him to the sell too. That will make it more interesting to see if piggy will find a home or not.
