The Charm Club...

Back in 2008, my friend Norma had an idea to help me raise additional funds for some of my creative projects.  The Charm Club is basically like a Cheese-of-the-Month Club, where you get a new and different cheese every month in the mail.  Instead of cheese, you'll get a limited edition charm made by me!

I recently thought of The Charm Club again after reading an article about Picasso.  He had arranged to sell paintings, sight unseen to a group of patrons in advance of making them.  The financial security allowed him to focus on the making of art instead of the paying of bills.  And I thought it might be nice to bring back the idea to help finance some new projects!

This incarnation of The Charm Club will run for six months and is limited to ONLY twelve individuals.  The participation fee must be paid in advance and is $75.  The amount includes US First Class shipping.  (Shipping for international participants is more to cover expenses and varies from region to region.)

During the first two cycles of The Charm Club, I offered three months for $75.  I focused more on fancier and more elaborate pendants.  This time though, I am creating SIX charms instead of three!  I'm really excited about this, because it's an extra challenge for me to think outside of the box and to push myself creatively.

The first charms will be ready by the middle of June.

One of the perks of doing The Charm Club now is that I have more help.  Before I got bogged down in organization and shipping.  Now that I have more help, I can focus more on creating really cool pieces that I hope people will enjoy and be able to incorporate into their own work or cherish for years to come!

The plan for the money I raise through The Charm Club is to get new art supplies, tools, and finally bring some of my ideas to life!

But wait... there's more!  If you sign up and pay before the 1st of the month, I'll include a small, postcard-sized collage painting made by me!  That's right, folks!  I used to retail these for $250 - $350 each!  So not only will you get to enjoy six months of charms in the mail, but you'll also receive an original artwork!

HURRY!  Act now!  Space is limited!  CLICK HERE to visit the online shop to sign up!  Email us if you have any questions.  I hope you'll get to play along!  This should be really fun!
