Your friends are so creative!! The charms are darling!! What a great bracelet and so much fun to wear.

Where do you purchase your charm making supplies?

Now when you wear your fabulous charm bracelt, you'll have lots of your sweet, artistic friends right there WITH you! It's beautiful, Viv! And so are all the charms YOU created! LOVE YOU!

Cindy said...

How pretty! Everyone did an amazing job. Have fun wearing your new bracelet.

Shirley Hatfield said...

You did a wonderful job! I've been collecting odds and ends to make jewelry, but I'm a bit intimidated. My Target $1 bin reading glasses aren't quite strong enough to see the tiny rings...but I hope to make something as pretty as you and your swap partners someday. =D

what a wonderful swap idea. The bracelets came out fantastic! Enjoy.

My Vintage Mending said...

That is a wonderful swap. Don't know if I could come up with something mini. I am more of a grand girl. Fabulous artisans. Wear it and enjoy...smiles...Renee

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh! Those are so cute! I wish I had time to participate in every swap, but unfortunately work gets in the way...oh well...I know you know all about that Viv.
Thank you so much for putting together the Valentine Heart Swap. I received mine this week and blogged about it today. Thank you for pairing me with Kim - I love my Valentines. :)
Have a great weekend.

Ric Rac and Polka Dots said...

Oh my goodness, those are wonderful. I haven't participated in a swap yet. Mostly because I don't have time to finish my stuff around here, but also when I see these wonderful things like this the bar is raised! Someday I'll swap, but in the meantime . . . I'll just enjoy looking at pictures like these!

Fran said...

Have A Wonderful Fun Creative Weekend.
