So, I am doing this art charm swap...and am learning that I love working small scale! What makes this fun for me is it feels like altered art, but it is mini-art. I am learning there are myriad ways to make these things, and some materials are more durable than other, but I am looking forward to experimenting more! Anyone with tips on laquers or adhesives that are waterproof and durable but without obnoxious fumes, for example, give me a holler! Here are 10 to start, fronts and backs...

Once in a blue moon...

I post twice in one day.

This isa new set made for a customer after the original got eaten by the USPS Gremlins. Grr.....
This is my Blue Moon design:

and some new earrings:

Birds of a Feather

Flock together.

I had to share my wonderful living room display consisting of the art of my wonderful Circus friends!
Top: a delightful wall piece by Kelli Perkins; tiny circle of watercolored egss with the words "Her joy was in flying"
On sconce: delicate house with open doors by Amy Smith. The front of the doors read "The roads we have traveled" with a pair of golden birds above. Inside, 6 glass vials, one word in each -- liberty, heritage, equilibrium, one summons, spiritual, The Blues. Flanked by two wooden birds that belonged to my grandmother.
Bottom: newest addition from Kathleen Hendrix. Luminous 5x5 canvas featuring a chubby chickdee balanced on a wooden branch with handful of 3D elements.

Don't they all come together nicely?
