Local readers, it's time to make charm bracelets!
We've set the date... so mark your calendar, email Saucy to register, and set about making twelve cute and clever charms with a Halloween theme. We'll do the rest.
Sassy and I will provide the charm bracelets, toggle clasps, filler charms and maybe the most important part: lunch.
You know, there was lots of boo-hooing when we hosted the charm parties for Christmas and Valentine's Day. So many readers were sad they couldn't come all the way to Canada to take part. So, do you live too far away to come and play jewelry-making with us?
Leave a comment if you think a charm swap would be of interest to you. The concept would be similar to Amy's Club Little House but instead of making a twelve dollhouse littles, you would make (or buy) a set of identical charms suitable for a Halloween bracelet. You'd mail them to me and I would assemble twelve kits (including a bracelet, one of each charm, clasp, filler charms and split rings) to mail back to you in time to put it together and dazzle your friends at Halloween. There would be tutorial posts on this blog to help you plan your contribution and assemble your bracelet.
There would be a fee to cover the cost of materials at this end and shipping the finished kit back to you ($20.00 US). Given time constraints, we will have to limit this swap to participants in Canada and the US only. If it works out, we can have an international charm bracelet swap at Christmas. This is sort of a test-run... leave a comment if this sounds like something you'd like to take part in and I will make a game plan if there is enough interest.
