A Charming Swap

By far my favorite swap to participate in at events these days is the charm swap.  Each time, it produces the most fabulous results!  This weekend at the Reflections Event in Newport Beach, we had a small - but very talented - group participating in the swap.  We added this year's charms to the bracelet we created at the same event last year...and LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL it is!
This is Bea's bracelet.  I love how she added the charms to a blingy bracelet - all the colors just add to the beauty of it - plus we took this photo in the sunshine, so you see all the sparklies.
This is my bracelet....taken too dark, but you get the idea.  The colors of the event are orange and green, so most of the charms are in those colors, or have a beachy, california-y theme.

And here is a representation of this year's charms.  Aren't they great!
I know that participating in swaps is always fun, but when you get something this wonderful, who WOULDN'T want to join in?  Thank you ladies, for participating again this year - Marsi, Victoria, Bea, Cheryl, Kari, Jennifer, Mary and Susan!
