    Good morning ladies. I would love to join you all in this swap. I have pm'd our hostess to introduce myself and promise you all I am not a flaker nor new to making charms.

    Now..do you all base your designs around beads or altered items such as dominos or scrabble pieces and such? Just trying to get a general idea what everyone prefers.

    Welcome to the site.

    I've made charms using beads, handmade beads, watercolour stock, shrink plastic, scrabble tiles and dominoes. Not sure yet how i'm going to make these charms though.
