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

Cocoa brown CZs flush set in place

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...

EMCS15: Charm Swap Update

Short on time this week, but not short on content!

We have lots of progress shots. Here we go:

Michele of MicheleGradyDesigns shares this teaser!

"I have made molds from some carved stones that I would like to make into metal clay charms. I'm not sure what kind metal clay I will be using as of yet. They will be either made from copper clay, white copper clay or bronze clay...or maybe all of the above!

Nina Gibson of NinaGibsonDesigns writes:

"The squares are now cut, drilled, edges hammered, name stamped, annealed and pickled. Read for their next step!"

Work in progress shots from Ann of Tuizui

Anna of SeverinMetals shared her progress shots:

Francine of JewelrybyFrancine is DONE!

And finally we wrap up this week's charm swap post with a work in progress shot from Victoria of Experimetal:

Victoria writes, "Charm progress, saw, saw, saw, file, file, file and then stamp, stamp and stamp some more and then to assemble, patina and add their finish! Almost done kinda."

We are down to the final stretch. Charms are due in Renee's hands in less than two weeks on March 31st. We are pretty excited about this swap's charms. It is going to be an amazing collection!

Until next time...
