All 8 charms are not flying to the States to join a charm exchange.
I took another photo with them all and the pink one facing the right way
with a £ coin just to show the size of them, these have a rustic finish 
which means they are not uniformly wired ie they are untidy LOL

Silver for a change

This is my first attempt at silver castings , used a glass heart shape bead which probably wasn't deep enough lol. A friend gave me a few scrap bits of old jewellery to play with last year so I took the plunge and melted them . It needs finishing off , a hole drilled and polishing then I will decide if it needs to be re melted or made into a charm
