EtsyMetal Charm Swap 17 Progress Report 2

Countdown begins!  46 more days until these will be finished and in the hands of our Curator Michele Grady! She will then sort and pass the 9 charms out amongst the 7 participants. We always make 2 extra charms, so one individual charm will get sold in the EtsyMetal Shop, and the other one gets attached onto a bracelet with the 6 others, but this time it seems we will have a perfect amount for a Charm Necklace, and these will come on a charm keeper!
50% of the funds collected from these Charm Swap Bracelets and Necklaces will be donated to a Youth Arts Organization (tbd) to support budding young artists!

Below are the Artists participating in Charm Swap 17, 2016!
And some work-in-progress shots!
Andrea Ring of Amuck Designs
Look very closely and see actually how small this Tiger is!
To create something this complex and small, is a great feat in itself!
Stacey Maddock of smaddockdesigns  
Stacey says, "Not as much about the animals themselves, but where they live.
Places in nature and colors are what come to mind. More to come soon!"
Victoria Takahashi of Experimetal
"I am just mocking up my design and deciding on the actual animal this will become. My animal will be sitting in a box about 1.25 to 1.5" square. I am making them a bit bigger and more complex now than originally planned since we have the great luxury of our charms being on a charm necklace this time!
I'm very excited as we have a fantastic line up of very talented Jewelry Artists this round!"
If you have some time and want to take a peek at some really cool pieces, you can see the charms & bracelets from past charm swaps in our EtsyMetal Team Shop, some are sold, but some are also still available!
Stay tuned for next weeks Progress Report!
Thanks for reading!
