Charm Swap 2013

Today is the day to reveal charms for Jen Cameron's charm swap 2013!!!  The theme is LOVE.  With that as the theme, here is my charm:

The ceramic cross bead made by myself (Terri Del Signore), represents the ultimate sacrifice done out of love!  
The copper hoop, also made by me, is a circle that has long represented the idea of "never ending".  The two combined represent my faith and that I can think of no greater love than the never ending love of God!

This is the picture of the charms I got. My photography does not do them justice, I'm working on getting better at photography.

  1. Your charm is absolutely wonderful. I cherish it. It feels so good in my hand when I hold it. Thank You!

    Susan Delphine Delaney

  2. I heartily agree with you, Terri: "No greater Love"... your charm is not only beautifully crafted but personally meaningful to me as a Christian. Thank you so much for sharing your talents in our group. :) I received one of these beauties and treasure it!

  3. I adore your rustic looking cross. It's beautiful. I plan on making it into something very special. Thanks for participating in the swap and for helping to raise money for Beads of Courage!

  4. Just love this rustic reminds me of a place I love...Santa Fe...just beautiful work! I love crosses for the very same reason your piece represents. Very nice!

  5. I love your charm, Terri - even more now when I understand the symbolism behind it! I was lucky enough to got one ~ beautiful work, thank you!

  6. Terri, I was lucky enough to receive one of your charms. As soon as I saw this, I knew it was perfect for my grandson's wife. She was baptized a few weeks back and her faith shines brightly. I know she will immediately understand the meaning of this piece. Beautiful work Terri.

  7. This is a beautifully made art charm. Nice work.

  8. This is beautiful work, a combination of simplicity and strength!

  9. I love your inspiration, Terri! But, I also love that the symbolism of your work is emphasized even more by the texture and patina you added, that made it feel like your pendant came from an old churchyard and had once belonged to a Spanish priest. It's such a meaningful piece and I'm so thankful I was lucky enough to receive one! - Julie
