Stunning Charms with Connie Crystal
Need a quick and lovely gift idea? Here is the perfect gift- a charm that can be used as a cell phone charm, key charm, stylus charm, on an ID badge, a purse charm...oh the potential is just limitless. To create the charms I simply strug the crystals on beading wire and finished off the ends with a crimp bead. The three strings of beads were then added to a simple "cell phone charm" so that they can be attached to just about anything. To finish off the gifts I recycled some jewelry boxes that I had lying around and covered the boxes with paper that coordinates with the crystals and beads and added a monogram to each box.
I made 4 of these little beauties as gifts for some crafty friends.
