OMG, Candi....this necklace is amazing!!  What a GREAT job!  I would totally rock that necklace!  I especially love the two-tiered idea!

I'm really loving the cool charm necklaces people are coming up with here. You've all done so well!

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.

Here is the wonderfully random necklace I got from vegebrarian!

The full thing

Ok Clock wise from the top we have:
Round Blue Charm: from a string of beads wrapped around the head of her pink stuffed elephant
Aqua Butterfly and crystal: She said that when she was in college her room was covered in glow stars and glow butterflies like this one and the crystal is part of a chandelier
The blue green necklace that runs across: she bought it a few years ago but never liked the length
Green Mushroom:She got a package of these in and estate sale last Fall. They are made in Japan.
Teal Leaf: part of a set of beads she bought to make a bracelet
Yellow sail boat and blue icicle: These two were part of an order she made on etsy from covetable curiosities
Silver key: left over from necklace she made for the Alice in wonder land swap
Our Lady of Guadalupe medal: From a local Catholic Store. She collects holy cards and medals
SAVE charm: half of what were her favorite earrings
Black Pig: another treat from etsy order
Silver and pink ring: Her stepsister gave it to her when they were about 11

Happy Fruit guy: I love happy fruit! part of her box of supplies
Silver heart: also from the Alice swap:
Rhinestone heart: part of a necklace that her mom gave her
Rose: half of the earring that accompanied a necklace her great aunt gave her unfortunately she was allergic to the posts.
Moon Man: Part of her favorite necklace when she was 12 or 13
Thumb Watch: She has little wrists and couldn't ever find a watch to fit so she had bought this.
Blue Hearts: part of a 80s necklace, she wore in elementary school
Green Mountain Dew tab circa 1997: She had a crush on a guy who collected pop tabs, so she decided she would too. Years late she gave all but the green ones to some one who was collecting them for a charity
Miss Piggy Charm & Kermit bottlecap charm: She made a bunch of these. You can also see the Animal one that she sent along with the Kermie pin and blue skull charm.
Copper Ram Button: One of her coworkers gave her a huge box of vintage buttons that belonged to her aunt
Brown Mushroom: counterpart to the green one
Light blue collie: another one of her etsy treats in my favorite color

Gold butterfly: When she was 13 her aunt gave her a bunch of old circa late 70s/ early 80s necklaces.
Cream Colored Daisy Button: Another part of the button collection from her coworker
Silver shoe: She bought this to make a necklace for herself a few years ago
Yellow plastic suitcase: A Classic barbie accessory from 86 or 87
Airplane charm: As she puts is Long live etsy!
Rhinestone flower button: also so from her coworker and part of her favorites stash

I really like Candi's bobbin and winged heart.  They look great on a necklace!
And Vegebrarian's bottlecap pictures are adorable!  Oh, I'm getting jealous!!

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

I love the necklace that Candi made, so sweet and the winged heart charm is the best! Cheesy

Vegebrarian's necklace also great, I love the butterfly and the bottlecap charms.

Today I received my necklace  Cheesy, I'm so happy that Chelseaxbaby also got hers today. Perfect timing!

So this is it:

I love that most of the charms have a beautiful story (the descriptions were wrote by her):

Gold open heart - A reminder to keep an open heart and not let the walls go up to the people around you.
Flower - A piece from my very first pair of earrings that I bought with my own money!
Big leaf shaped pendant - I have no idea what this is from, but I like it because it's shiny and reminds me of a fish.
High heel - For the princess in every girl.
Clear heart - It's just pretty.
C pendant - Representing the first letter of my name, funny story behind it actually. My aunt found it on the street when I was around 11, and I wouldn't wear it because I thought it was creepy looking and it would mean I joined some kind of cult. Therefore, it's been sitting in my jewelry box for ages.
Little leaf shaped pendant - An earring from my great grandmothers jewelry, passed down to me.
White circle with blue image - Part of an earring from my great grandmother who I never met, she was a very eclectic woman, as reflected in her jewelry.

My favorite pieces: The ceramic blue and white charm, the leaf charm made of a beautiful shell and the hearts...

Thanks again Chelsea!!

Oh man, such great work! I'm super sorry I didn't post pictures of mine right away, kmac--I went out of town right when I received, and haven't had computer access since then. Tonight I'll get some pictures up and also a chart for the one I sent you. Smiley

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley
