I am so lucky to be a part of the most wonderful group of charm swapping friends. We meet every six months to trade charms that we have created or collected with one another. The group ranges from 20 to 25 women. We swap helpful hints about jewelry making, share the stories of our charms, and admire the show and tell that appears. There’s lots of food and lots of joy. I am usually distracted, and mean to take lots of pictures. This time, I thankfully handed my camera to Julie. She took these fabulous shots before she got distracted too!
