Beads of Courage Charm Swap!

UPDATED to add:  There’s a small hitch with the eBay auction, new details will be posted as soon as available.

Today is the reveal for the Beads of Courage Charm Swap and Auction, once again hosted by Jennifer Stout Cameron.  This year the theme was Fairy Tales.  This was a bit of a challenge for me.  Until I got this in the mail:

I don’t even think this is the one I ordered, but I wasn’t going to send it back to the UK and exchange it, so I kept it.  I immediately thought “pot of gold” when I saw that one roller section.

So, I looked up the leprechaun and pot of gold legend and the rest, as they say, is history.

First, here are my charms:

And now, the story of the leprechaun and the “Pot O’ Gold”

Fairy Tale: Leprechaun
The Leprechaun is a type of fairy in Irish folklore.  They are depicted as tiny, solitary, bearded
men who cause mischief.  According to
legend, they spend their time making and mending shoes and have a hidden pot of
gold at the end of the rainbow.  If
captured by a human, they will grant them three wishes to obtain their freedom.

My charm is a pot of gold, with the gold being a gold bead on top of the pot, and then a Celtic charm hanging from it.

And these are the charms I received!

  1. Hi! I don't know what that roller tool is, other than I can somewhat figure out it's function, but that's really flipping cool! Almost as cool as your charms! I can just imagine all the gold inside the pot waiting for a wish to be made on. And the Celtic charm dangling is like the perfect touch. Keep spreading luck with your creativity!

  2. First, I have no idea how you use the roller plates. I stink at them. And I'm glad I guessed right with pot of gold (Zack guessed witch's cauldron). I got one. Zack stole it. He's stolen almost all the charms I got!
