Metal & Epoxy Charms

Today's bead is from the Blue Moon Bead collection that I've been posting about all week. The front of the package describes these as, " Metal & Epoxy Charms" and the back as, "CHRM/MTL/EPX/RND ORG #1".

I believe that means they are calling these orange! They look orange in a bright light, but in a little darker room and on this post they look a little like sienna. Either way, they are shiny and FUN!

I would love to have an entire charm bracelet made from all different colors of these charms. I have one more color to show you tomorrow, so that might be a fun weekend project!

I'd be interested in hearing some non-traditional ideas for using these charms if you have a second. I think they'd be pretty cute worked into a crochet jewelry piece with all the dangles everywhere!

Earrings popped into my head, but I was thinking of your charm bracelet....I have a ton of little fishing lure pieces which would be great charms for a bracelet... Hmmm, an idea is brewing and that's always dangerous.
