Januarys Mixed Media Kit- Paris Charms

January's "Paris Charms" Kit

First off... 
A new musical mix this week...
Happy Birthday Elvis.

So here we are into January.
Another month, another kit.
Thanks again to everyone that has supported our kit experience. 
 We appreciate your emails and your orders.
Last month was quite hectic.
So this month we thought that 
we would do something calm and cool.
We thought that we would start the "New Year" with
a kit that was jam packed with goodies.
In the last two months we have expanded 
our own collection of charms and findings.
You could call it a new obsession of ours at Jack & Cat.
We started looking for all kinds of interesting charms and 
metal findings that we could add to our pieces.
Especially " steampunk" goodies.
We wanted wings, gears, cogs, and more wings.
We wanted cameos of various sorts. 
Cameos of skulls, roses, various ladies...
We wanted a bigger assortment 
of keys and keyholes.

We wanted several 3Dimensional Eiffel towers
and as many crowns as we could find. 

We wanted mini frames of all sorts. 
Resin, copper, brass...
We now have a strong passion for any kind of 
filigree that we can alter and patina.

Plastic charms... 
We wanted more eighties plastic charms.
Old bubble gum machine charms, and 
small plastic Rockabilly ladies, 
with plastic demons.

The charm fever had us ... 
We searched and plundered our way 
across local bead stores and the Internet.
We wanted a huge surplus 
of cool eclectic charms and findings.
We gathered, we collected, and now we have
decided to share with you....

So one of the things we started playing
with last month... was the love of 
the traditional charm bracelet.
Charms ain't for everybody.
In life...
You find people 
charming or charmless.. no in between.
I'm so funny. Not...

We started creating charm bracelets 
We got hooked making these last month...
Nothing too serious for the mind...
but fun nonetheless..
One of the things we found that we tried one day
was Tim's big chunky bead chain...
Perfect .. easy clasp.. and natural holds for each charm.
Rustic.. and had more appeal for us... than a chain.

So here is this months kit... 
We have packed a little of 
all the above mentioned in this kit for you.
We hope that your love of the
charms grows as ours did.
Happy 2011 everyone!
