Simply Adorned Charms Samples

I promised I would be back to post some pictures. These are samples that show our Simply Adorned Charms and chains (pg. 189 IB&C). The first two pictures are the front and back of a 1" x 1-1/4" charm. The front side is beveled glass and the back is smooth. I like to have both sides decorated because you KNOW that your necklace is going to turn around to the back side at least a few times while you wear it!

You will be amazed at the quality of this jewelry. The chains are made from stainless steel and are nice and strong. This first picture also shows some of the "baubles" that you can get. Those are in the Holiday Mini Catalog on pg. 31. At only $3.95 each, they are a very inexpensive way to add a little extra to your chain! (Just so you know, the purple flower charm was a gift from my upline, Jan Wakeland for those of us who attended Convention. It isn't a Stampin' Up! bauble.)

This charm is the 1-1/2" x 2" size. It's a little hard to see, but the cupcakes have Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the top. When I took this picture, I hadn't "dazzled up" the chain yet, but since then I've tied on some ribbon and I plan to add the Pink Crystal Bauble to it - I think it will add the extra bling it needs, don't you?
The back side is a piece of colored metal that I purchased, ran through my Big Shot with an embossing folder, and then sanded the embossed image so it would show better. I added some bling with our Basic Rhinestones. (After all, a girl can't have too much bling, right?)
You just have to check these out - especially since there is a bundle now with the Charming Set, Simply Adorned 1"x1-1/4" Charm and 24" Simply Adorned Chain on sale for 20% off!! These would make a terrific gift for anyone. You could make up some different inserts so that the recipient could change them to match her outfit or the season. Once you get going on making the inserts, they're addicting! (Almost as addicting as chocolate!)
