wine glass charms - fun!

Recently, I enjoyed getting out into my studio and creating the beautiful wine glass charms you see here. This was one of those projects I would repeatedly think about doing, but didn't do -until now! About 2 years ago for Steven's 50th birthday party, I strung a few beads on a wire and twisted the wire around the stems of our wine glasses so people would know which glass was theirs! When I later found stainless steel rings with a little clasp in a craft store I thought I could improve my design. But this creative task stayed on my 'to do' list of projects for months! I often put it aside for 'later' because I had other more "important" things to do. Well, I finally said, forget it, and I'm glad I did.

I got out the pre-made circular wire pieces that would hold everything, some beads, shoe buttons from Alpha Stamps, shells and beads already wrapped around a head pin. I located my wire tools for bending the end of her circular wire that would hold it all, found "dog tags" and added them to the mix. then I sat down and played!

Take time to have some creative fun today, it will revive your spirit! Any questions, email me!
