Charm Swap 7 ~ Progress report 3

Meg Auth of SimplyMega
Meg has made amazing progress on her charms and is almost done!
These beauties are Sterling Silver and Operculums. Operculums are the little trap door on the snail shell!

Shae Freeman of Citizen Objects
Shae's charms are complete! These fantastic charms are made of Steel bearing races  and hand blown Glass.
Elizabeth Scott of ESdesigns
Elizabeth is calling these Pebble/Om charms. They are heat colored Copper discs stamped with an Ohm sign, and she is also adding a tiny Fine Silver Pool charm. 

Kira's sweet charms are inspired by her sisters love for bees and her hand making wooden hives.
These little cuties are made out of Sterling Silver and Brass.

Victoria Takahashi of Experimetal
I am making a pancake die in this photo. My next step in this process is to harden and temper the tool steel die so it will be use able for many many cuts. This is a new process for me so it is very exciting!

Thanks for peeking at our 3rd progress report.
The end is coming closer for our 7th charm swap. There will be an extra bracelet made for our EtsyMetal Team shop, half of proceeds will be donated to a Youth Art Organization (TBA).

See you next week!
