Some Vintage Glass Glitter........Friday Ice Linky Party

Hi, I hope you are all ok.  You may remember that a little while ago I shared a bag charm with you (here), the main feature of it made using gilding flakes with Ice Resin.  I'd like to show you another one I made at the same time, as a gift for a friend, but this one has been made using some Vintage Glass Glitter from SU:

The heart bronze heart shaped bezel was part filled with glass glitter which was then encased with 3 layers of Ice resin.  I added a SU vintage style brad in the centre, which was also encased underneath the resin.  The heart was then used as the main feature of a bag charm, which was made as a gift for Vicky over at Crafting Clare, who runs the Stampers 6 club - she is such a lovely person, who VERY patiently waited for my order month after month!  Thank you Vicky :-).

Here is a picture of the full bag charm:

I'd like to link this up to the Friday Ice Linky Party over at the Vintiquities Workshop.  Please pop over and take a look at the stunning cuff bracelet Thespa has created, using antique lace and, of course, Ice Resin.

I do have another, slightly different, one of these to share with you in the future - it was also made as a gift a few weeks ago, but as it was only posted today, I am unable to share it with you just yet.

Thank you for your lovely comments and best wishes - my bumps and bruises are starting to heal, although I still have a lovely one on the back of my head, and a very sore foot and hip.

Enjoy the sun this weekend, and thank you for dropping by, your visit is really appreciated.

I can tell you all that it is even more beautiful in real life and the glittery heart looks wonderful with the brad encased in its smooth resin. Thank you again Maria for such a wonderful gift! Vicky x

PS I needed no patience whatsoever - it was lovely having you in the club!

This is fabulous Maria - the glitter looks amazing set under the resin. A wonderfully dangly piece.

I do hope you are healing ok? That sounds like a serious fall. Nicola x

Of course she will be thrilled with it, just as I am thrilled with my stunning bag charm.
The bag charm is stunning with your amazing grasp of Ice Resin and the way you added the other charms. I adore it as I love the Juliet heart hanging.
Dear Maria your gifts overwhelmed me.You have the most generous heart.
