However, at a recent event at the shop where we served wine in glass stemware, I became acutely aware of how useful wine charms would have been to designate glasses. (Scrubbing permanent marker off the glass wasn't an appealing option.) Even though we had a small group that evening of five people, there seemed to be twenty glasses to wash by the end of the night. The threat of fruit flies made the task urgent. Washing glasses at the end of a very long workday was not particularly ideal. So the idea of wine charms were elevated in my mind!
With that said, I adore ball chain in this particular usage. It makes putting together wine charms a breeze! All you have to do is cut it to fit and string on an embellishment. When planning an event, the last thing you should be worried about is laboring over fussy wine charms. This type of wine charm is super easy to make and does a great job at marking who's glass belongs to who. For this particular charm, I used a siam-colored Swarovski crystal round and a Mexican sugar skull pendant from Nina Designs.
