These translucent charms were a hit
in Louise McClures workshop here last week.
I think that it might have had something to
do with pounding the copper wire into
interesting shapes. Next step was to
attach the wire to a very old page of
an old dictionary, trim and fill the center
with amazing glaze or UTEE.
Do a little heat with the toaster oven and
presto, magico, a fascinating hand crafted charm!
Using mica, Utee, photo holders and images,
each person was able to create a menagerie
of beautiful charms.
Next came Jen Salak's
uniquely designed book that utilized
strip paper covers and pages,
sewn signatures, painted edges and spines
and lots of batiks fabrics.
