Creative Charms

Club Creative Studio Resin Charms

My creative friends that I refer to as members of the CRAFTease Crew have gathered once again to create a collaborative item with creative charms.  You may recall the blog that highlighted this group effort of creating individual charms and exchanging them with others for a charm bracelet. The December theme was The Twelve Days of Christmas.

After that pleasing experience and fun results, we decided to gather again and make and exchange more creative charms. This time we all decided to work with resin and the theme was going celebrate  Saint Valentine’s Day.  Once again we gathered for the exchange of our charms and we ended up with another memorable item.  I love the charms we created.

Mixed resin poured into mini square molds.

Small items are arranged into the mold and resin is added to cover items and cure for twelve hours.

We make a mess but, it is all for the love of creativity. There is a reason.

Our great collection of completed charms! Ready to exchange!

When creativity flourishes, we get the excitement and confidence to continue on with a technique, or try something new. The NC CRAFTease Crew will be meeting again soon and I will be sharing an artful technique at our next gathering. I look forward to showing my craft-loving friends how I create in a fun medium.  Who knows what will come next? What is important is the expression of art and learning new techniques from someone who has knowledge to share.

We have combined the charms in bracelets and necklaces.

    I am thinking of adding this activity to my life as an “official group”. Whenever I relocate, I can have a network of crafting buddies to visit.

    Such a lovely project for a group to do. I was so impressed when I saw your necklace in person. You girls are amazing!
