Hooked on Charm Necklaces

I got the kitting completed for my workshop this weekend, so to celebrate I started a new charm necklace today.  Of course I used some of Tim's new papers . . .
See the little piece of film strip?  That's from the packaging front.  Just snapped it off and put a jump ring through it.  I did this with the sample pieces from the Grungeboard packages for a necklace too . . .
See the charm with the number 9 in the middle and the other charm with the yellow enamel piece on the end? Those are 2 charms (I combined them) from the new line by Susan Lenart Kamer sold exclusively at Michael's.  The line is called Industrial Chic . . .
I think I'll be putting those 40% off coupons to use on some more of these charms.  Some come in sets of 3 and some are single pieces.  Click HERE to see the entire line.


It's back to "the day job" tomorrow, so I guess I'd better close up shop and get  some sleep.  I didn't get a nap today . . . yawn


Tuesday update:  Sheryl just e-mailed to tell me that the charm necklace workshop I'm teaching at Whimzy! on June 19th is officially FULL - Thank you so much to everyone that signed up!

I love your necklace. I learned about Susan's new Industrial Chic line a few weeks ago and love what she has done. It is one of my new favorite things. Just my kind of thing to work with. I love what you did with it.

Awesome necklace! Wouldn't that look great with a feminine muslin top? Wow.

Those necklaces are beauties, Sherry! And that's the first thing I thought of when I saw the new line at Michael's--yet another way to use the coupon! lol

These are so flipping cool!!! I love your style, Sherry!

I saw the ad for the Industrial Chic line last week, and now that I've seen what can be done with it, I HAVE to get some.

I just LOVE these charm neckpieces. As I did the 'Alice' ones. I wonder - if I sent you some of my scraps of my digital art would you be able to use them? Pity I don't wear anything except earrings (as well as clothes, I mean!!). I have been wondering what I can make with the paper that just doesn't work as an art piece. email me.

I just left Val Brincheck's blog and her gorgeous charm necklace to come here and now this! I am dizzy with all the beauty I've seen.
Oh, and I thought I was the only genius who pulls off and saves those little sample thingies on some of Tim's packaging. But YOU are the only genius to use one as a charm. Bravo!
Of course your class sold out. You thought it wouldn't? Hah!

Your necklaces are fabulous!! My daughter and I made it to the Pasadena AND the Irvine Flea Market today. What fun we had. LOVE the Irvine one...just the right size. Pasadena has grown so big. We're thinking of checking out the Long Beach one next month.
