charm exchange

tara locklear, a metals student at ecu, invited me to participate in a recent charm exchange that she organizes several times a year. it's similar to the "pin swap" that kicks off the annual society of north american goldsmith's conference, but what's different about the charm exchange is that it is for ecu metals students, both current and former, and their metalsmithing mentors. participants make one charm each and names are drawn for the exchange. even though i was not able to be present for the day of the event, tara drew a name for me while my name was picked by marlene true. i got a sweet tin and copper charm made by marissa saneholtz. i forgot to take a picture of the piece i made, but marlene was kind enough to send one along. (thanks, marlene!)

thanks for reading.
