I recently participated in an awesome steampunk charm swap (check the gallery -- it's amazing), and when I sat down to turn my charms into necklaces, I ended up playing all day yesterday with transforming the charms into bigger pieces. I LOVE the results!

I turned Lady_Lovecraft's charm (center) into this awesome necklace. LOVE it!!

Scrabble tile pennyfarthing charm into this cute necklace (notice I used 2 key charms as links in the chain)

This is one of my own charm rejects turned into a cool winged necklace

And Doxie24_7's (I think) round swallow charm as the center for another winged pendant

Cool steampunk orb... barely changed anything. Just turned it to its side, added a swallow charm and some chain.

The winged pendant with the swallow charm is my favorite. It reminds me of an aeronautical badge.
