Custom Made Wine Glass Charms

After complaining about the dearth of wine charms in the area my very creative friend Sarah made the following for me. Being a wiz with glass she created the beads and constructed what you see below:







If you'd like to have some commissioned let me know and I'll make the connection.

OH, these are lovely!
Sarah is a most talented woman, indeed!
You are a very lucky friend.
Please extend the compliment, won't you.
Her work is very fine.
Cheers~

I certainly shall (though if she reads the comments she has the compliment). I enjoy having talented people around me (to make up for my own lack), so far it's the women that have taken the lead there :-)

Bairbre Aine,

Hey there. Thanks for the kind words. If I could be so bold, I have a BeadSpace page that has a selection of what I've done - though it does need pictures of my current works, but it's a good idea of what else I've done.

Sarah,
Thanks for the 'space' addy.
I nipped over for a look about.
Loved the 'Bill Frog' blue.
And the Ivory Goddess.
Favs. Any and all the polka dots.
I'm a stinker, I like the cutie stuff.

and as for you Mr. Mike...
You are very talented!!!
Just because you don't sit down and crochet a shawl or make glass beads does not make you 'lacking'!
Your ability to combine wines/food/guests is talent indeed.
You have many talents, IMHO...
Cheers~

I never learned to knit but my grandmother taught me to crochet. :-)

True story...I learn to crochet, sipping wine and spirits with my Nana!
Crocheting wool, or course, me uncle had near 250 bleeting, wee beasties.

However, my fav is Alpaca.
When up in Oregon (on the wine trail I might add) I visited a alpaca farm.
Only could get two skeins, however softest fiber!
Ok, I think and wine/crochet session is in order then.
I'm sooooo serious.

BTW, loved the Alpaca character int he animation film :)
