New Toy for Charmed!

I’ve mentioned in the past that I’ve picked up a new hobby over the past few months, making jewelry and hypno-toys for myself and my loved ones. Honestly, I feel like I’m barely scratching the surface with it as yet – I’m really just picking up chains and pendants and beads and stuff from local hobby stores and bending them to and fro with a pair of flat-head pliers until it holds together. But I’m really liking the results; here’s a piece I made for myself and my Goddess Lady Ru’etha to share at Charmed:

It’s really very simple, but I was really happy with the way it came out. The chain is just long enough to dangle from my finger, and the loop on the end lets me hold it very easily without having to grip it (and although it’s not immediately obvious, there’s a clasp there, so you can adjust the size of the loop in just a few moments). Here’s a look at it “in action”, as it were:

As you can see, it’s really easy to make something very beautiful with just a quick trip into a hobby store, and there’s nothing quite so satisfying as brainwashing something with a toy you made yourself. I can’t stress enough how much I really enjoyed doing this, and I look forward to sharing future projects with you as well!
