Rings & Things Blog Partner Project: Holiday Charms
Rings & Things sent us these Chinese lampwork glass beads. They may not have the longest lifespan because they are not kiln annealed, so be aware of that when buying factory made lampwork beads.
The "snowflake" charms are bead caps that have been flattened with my ball hammer.
1. Penguin Zipper Charm: these little charms can be used on coats, purses or backpacks. Add a lobster claw clasp to your charm with a jumpring.
2. Snowman Pendant: Add your charm to a cable chain for a cute necklace for a young one on your gift list.
3. Coal Cell Phone Charm: Add your charm to a cell phone lanyard to add a little holiday bling to your phone.
These are also a perfect project to keep the kids busy and offers them a chance to make some fun gifts for their friends and family.
