Wire Wrapped Wine Charms

I first saw wire wrapped wine charms when an old friend of mine from BoB put some up on the BoB auction a couple of years ago. I loved the look of them! Since then I haven't ran across them and over the years have made some hear and there. I decided to take it up a notch and make some that were a little more high end with sterling silver and Swarovski Austrian Crystals. You can now find them listed under my website's Whimsical Collection.

I will be adding some wedding themed wine charms soon that will be featuring bride and groom wine charms for the bridal champagne flutes. I will be also offering a more affordable line that will be made with glass beads and art wire instead of the Swarovski Austrian Crystals.

In the meantime I have kicked off the Wine Charms category with my Whimsical & Sassy pair of wine charms. The sample charms shown in the pictures were made as a giveaway for Classy Sassy Girls Facebook Fan Page Promotion. Become a fan of her Facebook page and then enter for your chance to win all sorts of giveaways, including these charms. I hope you enjoy the wine charms as much as I do. I can't wait to showcase future glass stem charms on margarita and martini glasses. They can be a great conversation piece at the party!

The Wine Charms that I donated (and featured here in this blog post) are made with sterling silver wire, 4mm topaz ab and crystal ab Swarovski Austrian Crystals, freshwater pearls in blue, pink, green and golden yellow. On one end of the charm is a peridot Swarovski Austrian Crystal shaped like a butterfly and on the other end is a 3/4" sterling silver hand stamped charm. One of the charms says Whimsical for Whimsical Charms and the other charm says Sassy for Classy Sassy Girls.

Bayshore Beach Themed Charm Bracelet

My latest Whimsical Collection piece is a beached themed bracelet that I named after an avenue located in Long Beach, Bayshore. Its a popular avenue with a small beach that families like to take their little ones to in the Summertime. The avenue is even closed from 9am - 5pm to automobiles.

This bracelet is made with lead free, silver plated pewter charms and findings crafted here in California by Tierra Cast. It also features 5 Ocean Agate beads in various green, peach, brown and yellow hues and ten 4mm Swarovski(r) Austrian Crystal beads. The Swarovski crystals include Sun AB 2x, Crystal AB 2x (looks more green than clear!), Rose AB 2x and Citrone bicone beads. The Swarovski Austrian Crystals guarantee that this bracelet will sparkle on your wrist!

Let me know if you are interested in this bracelet and want it personalized. For an extra charge I can add either a photo pewter charm or handstamped .995 sterling silver disc.
