I had lots of Ideas in my head but nothing ever seemed to be just right, I knew it had to be a heart, so I ordered these cute little hearts in copper. Again they set around for a week before I had any idea what I wanted to do. Then I remember my embossing folder with X's and O's and everything fell into place! I mean come on...everyone knows X's and O's from a 4 year old is the full meaning of Love!! (ok so maybe its a grandma thing!!)
So I cut the brass discs, drilled a zillion holes, stamped love on them, and added the mini bolts and nuts! Ran them through the tumbler and wah laaa!!
I was very happy with the results, even the time it took to get there, all for a great cause, and I got a few charms back myself!! I have some awesome charms and I have decided just what I am going to do with them!! I am going to take them and add last years charms to the group and make a long necklace, with only those charms!! It might get to heavy to wear, but it will look great on the wall in my studio when it does, where I can see it every day!!
