Crazy Day!! Fall Foliage Charms

I have to say I have always wanted to feel what I felt yesterday! LOL! I made some special Fall Foliage charms for a lady that was curious about possibly getting some. I made 48 of them. I put them into sets of three and listed Every Single Set yesterday. I had an errand to run and when I came back, there was one left in the shop! I felt giddy! I listed the last few sets and as I was listing, another sale came through! Later on I came back to check and there were three left in my shop! Wow!! That has never happened in my shop before! I am considering making more, but I decided last night to find some images for pendants. I found some, ordered them and I am making the pendants this weekend! I hope these are loved as much as the charms!
 So here is an idea of what I made, listed and sold! I really quite like them! All the bright fall colours and their natural, earthy "look". There are three sets left in the shop and if you really love them I can make more!  I can't promise specific images or paint colours, that would really take too long, and with all the people in this house, I am most likely to get them mixed up!

I burnt the edges for a different effect, they look pretty fantastic! To me at least!
 There is a good selection and I now have a new set of images that will go nicely with these. Keep an eye out for those soon.

As you can see here, I used three fall colours. Russet, Brown and Pine. I love the way they turned out, it's the first time I used any other colour than Drk Brown or black. I have used some pink on Breast Cancer charms, but those were a special order.
So take an eyeful and let me know if you have to have a set! :) Next week I will have the pendants done and will list them. If you become a fan on Facebook, you will be the first to know when I list them, since I always share the listings directly from Etsy!

Today I listed some double sided charms, they are quite eye catching in a totally different way. More  Vintage French. Go have a peak!

Thanks to all my wonderful friends and customers! I would not be here without you!

Dumb question here. Is there a hole already drilled for a jump ring? thx

I'm the curious lady! :-) Aren't you glad I asked you about leaf charms?! And then I haven't even ordered any yet myself! I got hung up on adoring the double sided charms, still need to place my order. Thanks for listening to your customers! Have a good weekend.

These are beautiful! They remind me of raku or ceramic tiles because of their irregular edges and their age look. Great work!

What a wonderful story ... all about flow ... yeah! And, of course, I think that what you've done is divine.

a new fan,

Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments! I am making a second set this weekend and hope to be able to list them for you on Tuesday! To answer a couple of questions, they are custom drilled, or they can be left as they are. The edges are burnt to give it a different look and they are varnished to make them water resistant.

I love the direction you have been taking your art in, Marie. Such a grand sense of style and color. I love these, and I am not surprised that they all sold out!
Enjoy the day!
