I love them! 

The only thing I'd change if I were you (and this isn't a criticism at all, just a friendly suggestion) is to attach the other charms with split rings instead of jump rings.  I've had too many jump ring constructed things break on me and it would be a huge shame to lose part of such a lovely piece! 

They are awesome, and I love the background you chose for the photos.  Smiley

uh-oh.  you're not gonna like me.   i do love the backgrounds, a lot.  but your first stamping doesn't make sense.  i know what you were going for, but if you read it, it says "crative" not "creative" which is what you wanted, right?  it should be "cre8tive".

are those aluminum or steel or sterling?  i haven't seen your earlier post.  i have a friend who sells sterling kits.

and i know someone asked, and yes, you can buy a metal punch that looks like a regular paper punch that punches through up to 18g metals.  makes easy work of holes.

these look great.  and oh yes, i'm with you, jumprings only.  when they are the correct size and gauge, and closed correctly, there is no reason not to use jumprings. 

i make chainmaille, and some of it is 30 years old and has been worn virtually every day without ever having to replace a ring.
