Just Charming!

No I'm not about to start moaning about someone being rude to me, but more about the latest challenge over on Big Art Adventure.
Their first theme of 2009 is
CHARMS
And seeing as i just love making these i was well up for the challenge.

Here is my creation.. I called it
"Bags Of Charm"
...

...

I started off with an old piece of jewellery {think it was a necklace} that not being silver had gone all dark and tarnished, perfect as it went so well with the other bits and bobs i had to add to it.
I joined an ickle glass bottle with the help of some twisted and wrapped wire - of which i added a tiny piece of script paper.
...
...
Also attached were a couple of pieces i made just messing about with my melt pot, some UTEE and wire.
I finished it with one of Tim's clasps.
Not bad for my first bag charm attempt, think i can do better though.. watch this space lol
