EMCS15: Charm Swap Update - The Final Progress Report

A mere 5 days to go until charms are due in Renee's hands! Our participants are working like crazy (I hope!!) to finish their charms and get them in the mail.

We have a lot of updates and progress photos to share this week so, let's get to it!

Michele of MicheleGradyDesigns gives us this update:

"I have used CopprClay to make little skulls from the molds I made last week. For those of you who know anything about pottery they are in the "greenware" state at the moment. Which means they have not been put in the kiln and are still soft enough to work like clay. I still have to let them dry a little more, clean them up and fire them in the kiln before they will become metal."

And her finished charms:

Ann from Tuizui is done! Here's what she has to say:

"Inspired by antique weathervanes and folk art-----"Swim,float,fly charm"

Laney from Silentgoddess (hey, that's me!) has made some serious progress:

"Here's what I am working on. I am doing my antique bronze Gadabout travel trailers and adding a cocoa brown flush set CZ as a hubcap.

Bail holes drilled

Initial finishing work

Reagan of ReaganHayhurst says:

"All finished and ready to ship out tomorrow."

Anna of SeverinMetals says:

"Mine are ready to ship out today!"

Nina of NinaGibsonDesigns is up next. She is happy to say:

"Finished! Packing and shipping today or tomorrow!"

Victoria of Experimetal says:

"Charm Swap 15 work-in-progress, they are nearly done and ready to fly off to their new homes."

"just a few birds in the hand"

And we wrap up this week's update with a progress report from Andrea of AmuckDesign:

"Almost there! pieces are cut finally and tonight I will solder,sand and polish."

And that is all I have for this week. Charms are due to Renee by next Tuesday, March 31st. Once she has them in her hands, she will get them sorted out and then shipped back to the participants. I will wrap EMCS15 up with a final blog post in the coming weeks. Thanks so much and until next time...
