Charm Swap

I am hosting a charm swap with 16 participants. Each of us has to make 16 identical (or nearly identical) charms for swapping with the others. I have finally finished mine and the last ones to come in the mail arrived today.

I decided to make one-inch soldered charms - not sure what I was thinking as I've never soldered before! But the soldering iron and I finally came to terms and I've posted a photo of my finished charms. The photo isn't the best as no matter what I did, I got a glare from the glass. Tomorrow I will be swapping these out and will post photos of the others.

Susan - I love these! It doesn't look at all like you just learned, they look great! I've been trying to get up the nerve to learn how to solder. I keep having flashbacks of the time I tried to learn how to weld...hahahahha.....clumps of metal were everywhere!

I'm still trying to come to terms with my soldering iron! :-) I would say after all those charms you should be a pro! I always find glass the hardest thing to photograph.
