Bobbin Charms





Today I made a set of charms from sewing machine bobbins! The top pic shows the bobbins with the paper around the core. I coated the paper with diamond glaze (2 coats) for durability. The middle pic shows the danglies I added -- beads, and washers and gear things. I put some on with a head pin and some on with jump rings. The bottom pic shows a finished charms on the right, but the left charm is still waiting for more jump rings full of goodies. I really like these, but they might be too funky for some people. I've already attached some to a bracelet that I have!

I've said it before: you have a wonderful imagination.

P.S. I polished off the last of the shortbread last night. Now I have to go on cholesterol-lowering medication (hahaha!!! joke) but it was worth it.
