Getting Ready for Seasonal Crafting

This morning these online photos reminded me of my West Virginia roots.  Waking to a brilliantly lit room of the sun shining through a chilled, glass world.  One of the elusive times of true silence in this busy world.  The power out, the world caked in thick, clear ice, the only sounds are the humming from your own mind trying to comprehend the muted world and the occassional cannonade crash of a tree falling somewhere in the forest from the weight of the ice, sounding like some vehement monster stepping your way.  I'm in Idaho now, there's never an ice storm.  Yearning now to be in my West Virginia wilderness, staring over a bright, snow covered forest where a neighbor is only seen by the distant smoke coming from a chimney several mountains over.  Still, the cold in this desert is urging me to start the Halloween and Christmas crafting time ... the best crafting time of the year.

CHUNKY Charm Dangles

Think Grandma looking stuff :)

This was an inspiration tag and on the back was a list of what each  charm represented for the person receiving it. For instance the rhinestone carriage and slipper represented her "ROYAL HERITAGE - to inspire her to return to her Father living the way she knows would make Him proud" the "SCISSORS represent that after many tries to know when to sever damaging ties."

Been doing quite a few things over the summer but life got a little too busy and didn't get to post many.  Don't forget that I do make dangles FOR SALE as well.  Just send me a message.  Most BIG CHUNKY dangles range from $12 - $25 and use predominately glass beads and come with some sort of decorative presentation (tag or box).  The more you order the cheaper they are.  Here's a few examples (also if you want them soldered it's additional)
I have a few swaps to get caught up but will be adding more photos soon!!
