I just love participating in Jennifer Cameron's annual Charm Swap. Last year was my first and I was so happy to be here again. I love so many things about participating! The best part is raising money for a great cause - Beads of courage! Other great things like, getting a package filled with wonderful handmade charms by amazing artist!! Another perk is the wonderful group of warm friendly artist that communicate throughout the weeks prior to the swap - such a great group! Even if I was a little to absorbed in my own life lately comment much!
My Charms are inspired by the scripture Isaiah 30:41
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
This was the first thing that came to my mind when I found out the theme was, "soar". That being said, I got started making ceramic eagles feathers!
The charms were made from stoneware. I started out with an ordinary white eraser. I carved a feather into the eraser to give a light texture to add to my clay.
Please join me in hoping around all the other charm swap participants!
