Camera Eye


I'm having fun coming up with little charms and designs, I like things that are a little unique and look old-fashioned. So I made this little camera charm. I want to make a pair of them, for earrings. I can see myself wearing them and smiling to think that there are little cameras on my ears on each side of my face. Two of them, one for each eye. CLICK....


This one is small, cast in pewter, with two hanging loops at the top. For a charm bracelet or as a cellphone charm. For fun, like a prize found in the box of Cracker Jacks. It reminds me of the old Brownie style camera, or the camera I used in collage, to take a photography class. I still have that one, and wish I still had the Brownie box camera, too.

I love these camera charms Lynn! I love images of cameras and old cameras! Plus, a pair of earrings with these would make the perfect gift for my mom, an avid photographer.

You all are so funny and sweet! Love the kind words, of course. I thought the charm reminded me a little of a toy camera, gives me ideas about making some wearable moving toys. Fun, huh?

It will have to wait though. Here I am still at work, and it's 8:00 pm. Long, long day. Bushed and tuckered out!

How cool Lynn!!

If Monopoly had a game piece that was a camera it would surely look like this! :)
