Charm Swap!

~ So here is the outcome of the Spring Charm Swap that I hosted! This was my 2nd Charm Swap and I think everyone did a wonderful job!

I made the wire wrapped nest charm. The above nest is one I made for myself for Easter, using glass beads from Czechoslovakia, this is my Mothers hearitage.
~Below are what I included in the swap.
There are so many wire wrapped versions of birds nest out there, most are so perfect in form, they don't look the way nature intended them to be. After making 25 nest, I think I've got the technique down, don't you think? I stained them with alchohol inks to give off the woodsy color.
~ Some of the charm makers are personal friends, involved in my Scrapbook/Altered Art group, some are Fiskateers, and the rest are people I met in the wonderful world of Blogland!
