I've Got the Blues

a mostly Blue Charm Necklace that is
I think this charm necklace would look nice with a white shirt and a pair of jeans don't you?
The charm above was made from a pair of recycled jeans, an acrylic Fragment and some of TH's Idea-ology metal snaps
I even added a "blue" brain in a jar - it's actually a wood laser cut - no brains were actually harmed in the making of this charm *hee hee*
I used some of TH's older papers for some of these Fragment charms.  And check out my vintage doll (another wood laser cut) with her blue dress
I made a charm from a metal drawer label above - cut a piece of sheet music with the word BIRD on it, glued it to the underside and then filled the top with Glossy Accents and hooked on a metal bird through one of the holes
Vintage rulers that are cut in small pieces make really cool charms TOO!
If you'd like to make your own charm necklace, another workshop has been added on July 17th at Vintage Whimzy! in Old Town Tustin.  But if you can't, and you would just like to have this one, you can purchase it next Sunday after my workshop.  I want to take it as another sample for the ladies.

This one was really fun to make.  Oh wait . . . that's what I've said about ALL of them!  I hope YOU are making something really fun.

Oh my, Sherry, I know I've said this before, but every time you post a new necklace I think it's the best one and it's my favorite. No exception here. I love it, I love what you use as charms. Just wonderful!
P.S. I'd love to get you and Val Brincheck together in a room. She's my other favorite charm necklace person. That would be charmfastic!

Sherry that necklace is simply stunning, really beautiful.

Thank you so much for your kind offer of the woodcut cards but I'm not as creative as you and I don't think I'd know what to do with them!

Looking forward to checking in next week!
