My charms are polymer clay, pierced with an eyepin and then flattened, shaped, and baked. After the charms cooled, I used rubber stamps and pigment inks to stamp each charm, then embossed with clear or silver embossing powder. Finally I added glass beads and twisted the tail of the eyepin to an interesting shape. This is the first swap I've ever participated in, and I had a lot of fun.
I play with all sorts of artistic media. Polymer clay is the thing I do most often. Finding time to focus on these things is a big challenge.
Thanks to each of the Ladies of Charms, for your lovely, intriguing charms.
