Why do I like art charms. Cause Christine Hansen made them, and she's f\/cking awesome! However, someone else should get the book and charms, I just wanted to say how glad I am to count her as one of my friends.

I love making glass beads, but I would also like to get inspired to use my previous ceramics and sculpture courses. This might just be the kick-in-the-pants that gets me going again :D

Happy anniversary!

Charms and jewelry are a great way to combine a variety of media into a single unified piece, while still preserving the integrity and beauty of each component. When the time is taken to ensure that each piece collectively adds strength to the overall theme the results can be amazing.

Christine your charms are gorgeous, keep up the amazing work!

Lindag said...

They are beautiful! They are like a little slice of the artist's imagination. Each one can mean something different to each person, they feel personal.

As a person who was totally new to making art charms when I joined the ArtCharms group, I've discovered a whole new creative, art direction. Each little charm tells its own story. Thanks for the chance to enter your fabulous giveaway.

Ruth E. Blake said...

I like the idea of art charms because to me a charm bracelet should be a collection of charms that mean something special to the owner. What could be more special than art charms that are hand made and one of a kind.

I teach a metal jewelry making class for teens. I am constantly amazed at their creativity. Art charms let them express ideas in unconventional ways. I would love to have your book in my browsing library for my students.

Thanks for the chance! You can email me using this email here.

I am new to admiring your Jewelry and so far love your site. I like the diversity of what you offer up outside of your crafts here also. And having the opportunity to have met you, your family & fur babies (I must admit have won me over to Grey Hounds where I hadn’t a real opinion in the past, but they are awesome animals) You are awesome!! And a give away well gotta love that :)

I really like the charms because to me charms and mixed media art has a very ancient and cultural feel, back to our roots. As far as i know people have been making charms since ancient times for a variety of reasons. Artistry brings out the best in culture, providing a richness in life. For me, charms can hold special memories to be cherished for years, even generations. Your dedication to making these is awsome, and your crafstmanship superb! Charm on Girl!
