silver charms


I've had these silver rings for quite some time now and didn't know what to do with them. You know how that happens...you make something really cool, but don't know what to put with it. So it sits, and sits, and it looks at you on your bench/desk/table, until one day you stare back at it and look at it in a whole new light. You see it fit with this object, or that bead, or this cording; and that's exactly what happened today. 

The long middle beaded charm I've had for ages as well. These started out as earrings, but I didn't like the way they turned out. So instead of marring the wire by messing with them, I let them sit for awhile as well. And today, as serendipity would have it, they all came together to make a nice little colorful family.

They are being cleaned now and some cording will be attached to make a FAB-O necklace. 

I like it when a plan comes together
