The Mini-Charm Challenge Reveal!

The mini-charm challenge is here!
I was so excited to get three lovely entries from three supertalented fellow beaders.
Here they are and I hope they give you a little creative jolt on how you could use my mini morrocan charms!

First up is Ms. Emma of Fredbean's Nook she went the earring route and I think the results are super cute. These are perfect Spring earrings and capture the soft pastels of Easter. Notice the briolettes that she added at the bottom?!

Next up, Tanya of Pixiloo decided to use the charms as links but really punched it up with an awesome focal. I think the links do such a great job of complementing the colors and shapes of the focal and I love this teal/peacock green color.
Great piece, Tanya!

Finally, Therese of Therese's Treasures created this bright Spring green version of the links and connected them using a few stunning bronze clay links from Lesley Watts.
Beautiful color combo Therese! 

Thank you ladies for participating!
These pieces are just gorgeous and they definitely show the variety of ways that you can use my morrocan charm links.
Now, for the good stuff:

Ms. Emma wins a free tutorial from my shop!
Just hop on over and pick out any tutorial you'd like. Drop me a line and I'll send it out to you!
Thank you again, ladies!

Oh, and also, one more thing before I go...
Today and tomorrow are the last two days for my sale
There are some beautiful things in the shop that have to go. My fiance and I have found a little place to move into after the wedding, and I'd like to move with a little less inventory and in the meantime give you a chance to save on gifts for Spring birthdays and Mother's Day.
The code is
and you'll get 20% off all jewelry purchases in the shop!
Enjoy your Easter weekend!


  1. Hi Marcie, Thank you for posting our designs using your Morrocan Mini Charms. I love Emma's earrings and Tanya's necklace designs. It is funny how all three of us used a shade of green.

  2. It is amazing how versatile those charms are. We all made something different. I love Emma's earrings with the briolettes and the charms make such beautiful links in Therese's bracelet. Thanks so much for the challenge and a late Congratulations on your wedding!

  3. These are so great! I love all the different looks you can get from one tutorial. Makes me ~almost~ wish that seed beads didn't give me such a headache with their tiny holed bad selves. ;-)
    I will leave the seeds to the professionals!
    Enjoy the day!

  4. Stunning ! You are all so talented! I would wear them all!

  5. These are wonderful Marcie! I would have loved to participate, but as you said in the previous post...Where does the time go? I'm thinking I will try this charm using wire.

  6. Finally get to sit down and see all the lovely creations. Fantastic work ladies, we rocked this challenge... thank you Marcie :0) 3 totally different designs and all gorgeous. I love how Tanya's charms worked so well with the stitched focal and Therese's charms blended perfectly with the bronze components. And, to top it off, I won the random drawing... on my way over to choose my prize!

  7. Such sweet designs. Alas I saw this challenge too late, I would have loved to have joined in.
