I'm Charming.........

Well practising at the moment.  I've been so busy with 'appointments'  and urgent gardening work, since I did the poppy tag that I haven't had time to play.

The thunder and lightening going on as I type this is getting a bit scarey - it's gone pitch black and Mr Lottie is out playing lawn bowls - gulp!  (Well he was when I first started typing this - and it's still thundering and now gone 10 pm.)

Anyway, this afternoon I managed to lock myself away in my studio with the leaking roof at the end of the garden and started practising.

(You can click on photos to enlarge) 

I do stress these are my practice pieces. 
They've been baked, but need to be sanded down, polished, and then I'll be making them look like real charms using different techniques.  They will change colour completely so take no notice of the shocking blue back discs etc
 I've joined in another swap so I have to get these done by the end of the month.

 The charms have to be a size that can be worn as a pendant
Or small enough to fit on a charm bracelet.
 You can see how tiny these are can't you.
I am hoping that at least a couple of these will be good enough, once they are finished, to send off.  But I am not expecting too much - and I have beads I can make charms with as a back up
