This is my entry for the challenge, just got it done, Yay!  I took a traditional song for this time of year, Auld Lang Syne, and made inchie charms with it for my beaded charm necklace.  It started out to be a bracelet, but I soon realized it was meant to be a necklace.  I used silver chain, black silk cord, I made glass and Swarovski bead dangles and used snowflake charm.  Thanks for such a fun challenge  Cheesy

Such a great use of...everything you used! It looks marvelous, and it's perfect for wearing on New Year's Eve, of course.  Grin

Gorgeous.  Everything goes together perfectly.  Great choices.

Do you mind sharing how you made the inchies into charms?

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Do you mind sharing how you made the inchies into charms?

Not at all, I cut black cardstock into 1 inch squares and then cut the sheet music into slightly smaller squares making sure I got the lyrics I wanted on each square.  I used modpodge (glossy) and glued the 2 black squares together back to back and then glued a piece of sheet music centered on each side.  Then I used Stazon and a sponge and sponged the edges of each charm.  Next each charm got a coating of modpodge (one side at a time)and I put it on in a crisscross pattern (I like the effect).
Once dry, I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole in top of charm and added a black eyelet.  Add a split ring and your done!  Grin

Stazon is a permanent ink for stamping. I have some and its really awesome it stamps on all sorts of shiny/porous/non-porous surfaces and leaves a nice clear impression, especially on detailed stamps. It is a bit fumey but I definately recommend it.

Back on topic: Carrieme, your craft is awesome. at first I thought they were microscope slide charms they were so shiny. Good job!

Thanks Ralph!  I had to laugh, I think Stazon smells good!!  I guess I have been using it too much for too long...  Cheesy But it is the best ink pad around I think.  Oh, it now comes in a variety of colors too even available at Michael's.

Hi Carrieme

That is really beautiful!

Are you going to make some and sell them, I'd be really interested being a very patriotic Scottish lady! lol

I moved away from Scotland to live in England and find myself terribly homesick living here.

I love your necklace!
