Charmed Pennies

I have been having fun the past few years making and selling scrabble tile pendants at the shows that I am at. They have been a huge hit. I wanted to do some in a round shape, and after a light bulb, finally went off, I started using pennies to make the pendants on. They are an even bigger hit than the scrabble tiles. So today, I have been tripping over pennies all over my house.

First I have to clean them up, and then sort through them picking out the “pretty” ones. Then I get to play.

Here are a bunch of pennies done, just have to wait 24 hours for the epoxy to set.

And here are some Charmed Pennies all finished up just waiting to be put on etsy later this weekend.

Many of my glass and jewelry friends will understand this. We have a ton of beads and jewelry around, and most of it is for sale. Well, I have to admit that I don’t have lots of jewelry. I have  a few great pieces that go with the majority of my wardrobe, and that is that. So today I have to say that I am feeling pretty lucky. After we got home from church, I changed into jeans and a great new shirt that I received for Christmas. Well, I didn’t have any jewelry for it, and you know… sometimes it really does come in handy being a jewelry designer and glass artisan. I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I ran downstairs, and grabbed my favorite heart that I have made. (I have brought the heart to shows, but it never has seemed to make it actually to the table to be for sale.) I really wanted to keep it, but didn’t have anything to wear with it. Well, now I do. I turned it into a quick necklace and paired it with some crystal earrings, and a fused silver bracelet that I made before, voila! My outfit is complete!

Well, it has been a week since I set my goals for the year, and I thought I would see how I am doing.  So far so good, except I didn’t list anything new on etsy last week. I did reopen my store though since I had it in vacation mode while I was busy in December with all of my shows, and had never gotten around to reopening through the holidays.  So that is my main goal this week, to list in my etsy store. I listed 2 fun frog pendants today, and I have a boro set, and a Valentine Viking knit bracelet all ready to go tomorrow. I even have the pictures done for a bracelet for my website! Woohoo! Progress!
