Mixed Media Monday - Past Loves

This week at Mixed Media Monday the theme is "Past Loves".  Not old flames but something you used to love to do and haven't done in a long time.  I used to make quite a bit of jewelry at one time.  I haven't touched my bead stash in years and I also needed to make charms for a swap at Marie Antoinette Mail Art so I spent the day making charms for the swap and also made this charm bracelet for myself.  I spent all day working on 36 different charms...this is just a small sample of my work.

Thanks for a great challenge.  It was nice to break out the needle nose pliers again.  Please visit:   http://mixedmediamonday.wordpress.com/  to see all the lovely art this week.
