Very pretty sandollar charm...
I wanted to make Cheri Carlson's "Hidden Lagoon" bracelet (instructions here, on Artbeads). I didn't have some of the components at all, and was short-handed on others. I didn't feel like ordering and waiting ... So I tried to imitate and re-create the bracelet with what I had on-hand. My very first time working with memory wire, too!
Among other things, I was lacking the Swarovski fish charm at the finish, so I substituted this sandollar charm for some movement and shine. It worked beautifully! This is a lovely, well-made charm, with true-to-life detail, and is fully pressed on both sides. A great bargain, very reasonable price, and great quality.
I've ordered sand dollar charms in the past and none have done the iconic sand dollar justice... until this one! Beautiful in its simplicity - now an all-time favorite among my customers! Love it!
Beautiful in Summer Themed Jewelry
Sometimes gold-plated charms look really cheap, however, the color of this charm is perfect! I love creating charm bracelets, so I was happy to finally find gold-plated charms that actually look so much more expensive than they really are! Great value and quality!
I used these in a coral charm bracelet--the design is two-sided so it worked well, and the charm has a nice weight to it. Good quality.
