CHARM SWAP 4 Work in Progress 2

Istanbul Designs etched sterling charms with her pen and ink anvil. To see more of her in progress pictures go to her flickr.

Tomorrow is the deadline to ship the charms for Charm Swap 4 and lots of pictures are coming in. Next week I'll post the finished charms, but this week, we will see the second installment of Etsy Metal's Charm Swap 4 "Works in Progress". I've tried to include a link to the artist's flickr or blog so that you can see even more of their works in progress. (sorry WIP group 1, but I wasn't clever enough last week to do that).
Quercus making her resin filled boxes. Check out more of her pictures on flickr.

Here's the skinny---Charm Swap 4 participants make 22 charms for the swap with 20 to trade with fellow members. The two extra charms from each of the twenty participants will be available for sale at our etsymetal store. Fifty percent of all sale proceeds go towards a charity designated by members of the charm swap. Everyone has been working very hard on this and it has been a pleasure to curate this event. I must say that Meg from simplymega wins the "speedy" award for jumping in with only ten days to complete 22 charms! Thanks for your hard work!

Simplymega busted a move and completed her charms, joining with only 10 days to due date!

Metal Riots's charms are already here at my house! Check out her flickr for more pics!

Andes Cruz shows us her progression with her enameled charms.

Rubygirl did honey comb sand cast charms from a vintage button! You can see more of her sand casting on flickr.

Tuizui is making weathered enameled rings in bright colors. Reminds me of kicking back with some chips and salsa! More on her flickr.

Howlin Doggie has done a beautiful cast long sterling leaf. She has blogged on her progress here.

Experimetal is making a jointed copper and brass charm.

To purchase charms from earlier swaps, or the entire bracelet--visit the etsymetal team store.
Thanks to Kathryn Riechert for making the tag and thanks to Nina Gibson for making the base link charm bracelet. Another hearty thanks to Vic from Experimetal for her continued mentoring! CS4 ROCKS!
