Twice a year, I host a very fun charm swap for 25 or so friends. We’ve been enjoying this special tradition since 2007. Everyone brings 25 hand-crafted charms to trade with everyone else. The presentations are as terrific as the charms.
After we all select our new beauties, we hear how each charm was created, and share all sorts of jewelry-making hot tips. Usually the jewelry you wear to this swap gets passed around for show and tell as well. There’s food and friendship galore. And when its all over, you have the best pile of new jewelry jewels!
