Beads of Courage Auction and Charm Swap!

Today is the big day! Today is the day I can reveal the charms I made and received for the Beads of Courage Charm Swap and Auction – LOVE, hosted by Jennifer Cameron!  Today, you can go to THIS LINK and start bidding on charms – all proceeds go to Beads of Courage

The other day I posted a teaser photo of the charms I made, and below you will find the teaser alongside the photo of the charms in full view!

I made my charms from glass hearts that I made and heart dangles.  The glass hearts were made of clear glass, which represents the purity of these little kids hearts, and they were etched to represent their medical struggles.  The charm dangles are for extra love! 

Below you can see the charms that I received, and I was a lucky girl! 

Row 1 – Nancy Dale, Lesley Watt, Terri Del Signore
Row 2 – Rita of Toltec Jewels , Susan Delaney, Jean Peter
Row 3 – Lori Bowring Michaud, Moriah Betterly, Mallory Hoffman

Everyone did such an amazing job with their charms, and I can’t wait to go through everyone’s blogs to see what they received!  You can too by following the links in the list below!  And please, go to the auctions and bid often and high for a great cause!  And a huge THANK YOU to Jennifer Cameron for ALL the work she puts into this charm swap and auction – it’s a huge job and she’s an amazing person!

Beads of Courage Auction Teaser!

Jennifer Cameron, of Glass Addictions, has been holding a charm swap for a few years now.  Last year, it became a way to raise money for Beads of Courage.  This year, the theme for the charm swap is Love.  On November 15, the auctions on eBay will start and I hope you will all join in the fun by bidding high and often for some really really cute charms for a really really great cause!  I will reveal the charms I made on that day, as well as the charms I received, and provide you with a link for the auction!  Here’s a little teaser of what I made!
