Sweet! I like this idea a lot more than a gallery a mile long!


1. aprilagain - received 6/18
2. Doxie24_7 - received 6/18
3. cindibee - received 6/25
4. Lady Lovecraft - received 6/22
5. yardenxanthe - that's me! - sent everyone's 6/16 - doxie24_7's was returned to me, sending again today 6/28
6. Krafty_Karusu - received 6/21
7. Ralph - received

Awesome package from aprilagain. I totally wasn't expecting the extras, and can you see how WEE the watch hand (in the plastic package) is? Sooooo small.

Front & back - so cool!

Cool charm from Doxie24_7 - she said this was her first swap. I hope it's been a good experience!

Elegant steampunk by Krafty_Karusu. My son asked if it was candy! Smiley

This lovely charm is by Lady Lovecraft (congratulations on your graduation, by the way!!). It's so cool! I love it. The teeny scrabble tile is adorable.

Pretty charm from Ralph, plus extras and cute packaging.

Blurry pic of cindibee's special charms (she sent 2 plus a pack of extra goodies)

A closer pic of the winged charm

And the mysterious little bottle

Here's mine. I made it out of a washer (tried to stamp it with clock numbers with my metal dies), added a large copper chain link around the edge, rhinestone brads for the watch hands and the top of the pocketwatch.

I used dollar store wedding favor tins to make steampunky-boxes to put the charms in, but I only had 3 tins on hand, so I only sent them to half my swap partners (sorry, other partners!).

Except, the problem comes for those who are awaiting notifications of new posts to see people's goodies. Editing previous posts will make it a little more difficult to know when things are actually updated.

Seat taken!

The Coopered Lushingtons

1. ceemonster sent 6/4 received 6/17
2. emopenguintoast sent 6/4 received 6/17
3. loopylamb sent 6/4 received 6/7
4. sweetyetevil sent 6/4 received 6/10
6. Lique sent 6/4 received 6/17
7. Habitat lady sent 6/4 received 6/7

From sweetyetevil...I absolutely LOVE this charm...it's made from a clock face charm, another metal circle with great colored stripes on the back, a gear, a turquoise cat's eye (not a real one...right, Beth?? right?!?!?), and a dangly bead! It's amazing, and the color of the eye is perfect! I'll have a new necklace soon. Thanks so much!!!

From loopylamb! I love the amber colored resin and the cool gear inside, and the bottlecap charm is wonderful. I love the blue dangly beads! And excellent job with your first time using resin...it's so smooth and lovely! Wish I could say the same for mine  Cheesy Thanks, loopy!

From ceemonster...this charm is awesome. I ADORE the wings and there is a beautiful green patina on them. The gears are arranged really nicely and you can't see it, but in the center is one engraved with the letter 'L' (for Linsey!). Beautiful work, Cate, thanks a million!

This is from Lique! I love the square setting and the little gears peeking out all over...my favorite part is the watch face with roman numerals in the background. This is beautiful, thanks Angelique!

From Emo Penguin Toast. I really like the combo of large and small gears here and the danglies on the bottom are always awesome. Thanks, Angela!

And from habitat-lady! This charm is awesome, it reminds me of a fancy old telephone for some reason. I love the chain and the little watch face thingy with the days of the week. What a clever way to do the jump ring, too! Thanks, Renee, I love it.

Loopy of the Coopered Lushingtons claims this spot!

1. ceemonster - received 6/19
2. emopenguintoast - received 6/21
3. habitat-lady - received 6/21
4. sweetyetevil -received 6/12
5. hgddm - received 6/7
6. Lique - received 6/21

Received from hgddm today. Love the colors! I asked for a world traveler theme for my charms, so she made it look like the earth. Unfortunately, the bubble wrap stuck to the resin. Habitat-lady mentioned she thought she could fix hers with another thin coat of resin, I think I'll try that, too.

Received from sweetyetevil yesterday. Love the charm, its awesome. Love how it looks like its held together by the nails.

Received from ceemonster. Two views of the same charm. Love how she fit my world traveler theme, and the patina on the wings is beautiful.

Received my last three packages yesterday. My mail box was chock full of wonderfulness. This charm is from lique. Lots of lovely little bobbles in resin. I especially like the key.

This one is from emopenguintoast. The base is a piece of clock mechanism with gears attached to it. The dangly bit is lovely and whimsical.

The final charm is from habitat-lady. Love her creativeness here, using the copper cage bead and watch parts to make this world traveler a little flying machine.

I've received from all my partners, and they have all received from me. What a great swap, thanks again to all my partners. I had a great time and got some really unique and beautiful things.
