Tiny Weenie Queenie Crowns

Long live the Queen!  Hope you are having a wonderful Friday.  I thought I'd throw up a few photos of what I've been up to lately.  Don't you love crowns?  I sure do, so many of the charms contain a crown image.  The Marie Antoinette charm is as small as I could get it at 3/8"x 5/8".  That's pretty small to solder.  :)  The Halloween Queen is embellished with black Swarovski Rhinestones.  I love the way they glimmer in low light.
The crown above has a tiny Swarovski Crystal glued directly to the glass.  I just love the crown image, and I got it from The Graphics Fairy.  She has some wonderful images on her website to check out.
Here are the backs of the charms.  I dusted the middle crown with a little pixie dust, oh I mean glitter.
Some other tinies.  The little girl is 1/2x1/2 inches.
Here are the backs.  I think of myself as a vintage chick.
After making some black and white Halloween charms, I went ahead and experimented with black and white flowers.  Here are just the images on paper, and the charm wrapped in foil before it's soldered.  I like the way the images are so soft and feminine.  

I sure do hope you have a wonderful weekend, and don't forget all us gals are really Queens right? 
 Take care,
XO Martha

Pretty Posies

Hello! Over the weekend, I was delighted to visit a boutique that has just started selling my charms. It's called Posies Boutique and it is so beautiful. The address is 64 E. Daily Dr. Camarillo, CA 93010.
It is dripping with yummy goodness from floor to ceiling, and if you ever get a chance to visit you must.
Gorgeous finds and a beautiful sofa above.
I spent a long time searching through the amazing goodies with my niece and daughter. Needless to say we had a lot of fun.
Some of my little crystal charms displayed in lovely silver dishes at the front counter. It was wonderful to meet Pam and visit her beautiful store. This boutique is amazing and worthy of the best magazine. I hope you get a chance to visit soon. You will be very glad you did. :)
Take care,
