    I had ordered some custom laser engraved charms for my jewelry making and thought... hummmm... some of the people on Avian Avenue might like to have their own personal charms for what ever you want. Maybe the name engraved of your favorite bird or one that has passed and you can keep them close to your heart on a necklace. I ordered from two different sources on Etsy ... Zia Findings and Bohemian Findings. They both offer different shapes in stainless steel charms. I did order a different charm from Bohemian findings that was long enough for me to have the coordinates of Murrells Inlet engraved for necklaces I sell at the gallery in Murrells Inlet. I just made this bracelet for the gallery with a custom engraved heart charm with "Seas the Day" on it. It's my seller name at the gallery. The other photo is the pendant with the coordinates engraved on it. Any hoo... thought I would share this in case any of you want your own personal charms. I have no affiliation with either of these shops on etsy ... I appreciated their great service! Prices are very reasonable and I was able to use a font of my choice that Zia Findings didn't have on their list. They both have tons of charms with different sayings too. Have fun poking around their shops!

    (note.. on the bracelet.. I hadn't clipped the tails of the stretch cord yet... just in case you wondered what those "thingies" were. :) )

    Thank you @Lady Jane ! I'm in a "charming" mood! :D I made a couple of bracelets with authentic coins too! The hammered copper charm in the first photo of the orange agate bracelet with the Seychelles Tuna coin is actually a penny I hammered. Planning on making some good luck bracelets with the pennies.

    Ooooo I just LOVE them! The coordinate is so original and so is SEAS the day! You are very creative! Love the Stones on the coordinate one too. Do you happen to have a website?

    I don't have a website. I really have no time to manage one so I only sell at a small gallery here in Murrells Inlet. Some things go pretty quickly. It's hard to keep up with all the supplies! I make necklaces, bracelets and earrings. I have too many interruptions here at home. The coordinate necklace is made with tiny 3mm czech fire polished beads and the large blue bead above the pendant is czech glass too. The chain is hand made by myself wire wrapping and linking each bead to cut short links of chain. Time consuming but worth it to have just what I want when I make something.
