My bird charms have finally found a home

Last Summer I was in a charm swap, Summer Birds, were I received 20 plus charms in this swap. I have had them stored in a zip bag up until this last weekend. When I figured out what I wanted to do with them. Usually I attached my charms to a necklace or bracelet. Then it hangs on a hook until I decide to wear it. With my birds I wanted to do something different, but was not sure what, until now. I snagged a small branch from the ground under my elm tree. Took out my wire, link chain, jump rings and charms. Wrapped the wire, hung the link chains and attached each charm to the chains to hang down.
Then at the bottom I incorporated my Birdie that I made a few weeks back in Sally Jeans class. Glitter legs and all.
So now hanging from the hook they have a great view out my kitchen window. It makes a great addition to my kitchen.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do.

Love your chimes and bird you created in Sally Jean's class. Looking forward to spending time with you in July at Sally Jean's. You are so fortunate to have her right there in your home town. Take care, Melissa, and see you soon.
