Bonbon Charms - custom sterling charms by Erica Clements out of Eugene, Oregon.This year I was inspired by Jake carving our initials into an aspen tree near Blue Lake during a camping trip last summer. I never knew how cheesy my husband could be - until that afternoon - and, despite my horror at him cutting into a living tree, I decided to commemorate that event with a sterling silver charm from
I recycled some sterling silver toggles from old necklaces that I don't wear anymore and hand-wired the charms with oxidized sterling wire and chain. Faceted golden pyrite pillows add some warmth to the pieces.
Happy Valentines' Day to me!
