Hi everyone! Charm Swap is nearing its final days and everyone is in-progress or shipped!

Nina has a wonderful aesthetic about her work, it feels very graphic to me and I have always loved her pieces from every swap, and the pieces I personally own too! This charm is Copper and filigree stamping. Nina thank you for playing and shipping out today!

Special thanks to these swappers below are on schedule and have shipped!

Still to come will be the finished bracelet EtsyMetal Team photos and shop listing for the individual charms.
As usual it is our tradition that we will be donating 50% of the proceeds of the sale of the CS7 bracelet to Shannon of RubyGirl's choice of Youth Organization (TBD).
 These swaps have been alot of joy to be part of and I'm feeling so proud of everyone for working together to make it happen, it is a rewarding project to be a part of.
Thanks you guys, I mean it! 

On a sad side note, we unfortunately had a CS participant drop out at the last minute, but our new Charm Swap 8 hostess Michele Grady was next in line and said "I can do this!" So wow, Michele THANK YOU so much for stepping up at literally the VERY last minute, phew!  
 Welcome to the team Michele and thanks for volunteering for the CS8!
More CS7/8 news to come next week April 7th!
Thanks for reading!
