I am so excited to be a participant to such a fine event. Jennifer Cameron of Glass Addictions annually hosts this fundraising event for Beads of Courage and has been for some time. Beads of Courage has given hope, strength, and courage to children in dire sickness where nothing else could. The sales from these art charms goes directly toward helping these children with things they need in their treatments.
This year the theme for the art charms was "Soar". We each made charms for 11+1, the +1 comes home along with a random assortment of charms that is representative of what will be in the auction. Some of us go on and will do future blogs featuring the charms from the swap. These are the charms I received. Check back later to see what they become.
The art charms I made were copper disks with the word SOAR stamped into them. I then took epoxy/resin clay and fashioned spaceships and rockets to carry the worries and illnesses out of this world. I made one angel wing/comet depending. On the back of each charm is my hallmark, a crescent moon.
I hope you take the time to see the other artists' pages and they're works. And please by all means, stop by and bid on a few of the charms to help a worthy cause.
