Elaine Tolson does a fantastic job on her jewelry charms.

I have two charms from MJF. The first was one I received from MaryJane. She sent one to each attendee at our First Annual Glampout six years ago. The second I have is the sisterhood charm I purchased with my #76 on it.

Perhaps Elaine could be commissioned to make Jubilee logo limited edition charms? Or get paid pre-orders for her to make some?

Here's the charm I'm thinking we can ask Elaine Tolson about, unless you think we should design one the same size as our Sisterhood necklace?

Front



Back



Also, I like putting a 1/2 inch (10mm) or sometimes a 3/4 inch (15mm) sterling silver bezel cup on the bottom loop of my Sisterhood necklace (along with other little jewels). They're super easy to make and cheap. You buy a "bezel cup with loop," put your artwork in it (in my case, I've put some of our merit badges in it), then fill it with "clear casting epoxy." Cute as the dickens. Here's one online source where you can buy bezel cups for around $2.75 + shipping, https://shop.rings-things.com/cart/search/search.asp?keywords=bezel+cups&=Go+%3E%3E.







Anyway, let me know if the DIY bezel cup is enough of a charm or if you'd like me to contact Elaine and whether or not you want the larger or smaller (square) version of one of her necklaces.

Decisions, decisions! Soon we'll all be charming.

MaryJane, fantastic job! So pretty.

The square charm is a great size. The size of the sisterhood charm is unique and makes it special. So, other charms don't need to be the same size as it. The square charm can be worn alone or on the same chain with the sisterhood charm or on other charm necklaces/bracelets.

AND! the DIY charm is also a great idea. I didn't know these exited and I think I'm going to become a bezel cup charm addict.

As far as which charm to offer....You know, I'm a gal that likes cake and brownies and wants to eat both for dessert. So, could it possibly be that we have choices of both? I totally understand if I'm asking for too much.

Super cute, MaryJane! Love them both - the square charm AND the DIY charm accessory!

You know, your DIY project reminds me: Epiphany Crafts has some shape tool kits which can be used to cut images into small shapes, then inserted into their metal charm settings, and then sealed in with epoxy bubble caps. They look a lot like the charm you have on the Sisterhood necklace. I actually have a couple of different shapers myself, and had considered making a a charm out of the logo. It's a great alternative, to be sure! Super easy, and pretty affordable. Girls in Henhouses could invest in just one shaper and a packet of charm settings and brads and make a whole bunch of them to put on bracelets! Then the shaper can be used over and over and over to make many charms commemorating many special events for many years to come! Here is their site, so you can check them out: http://www.epiphanycrafts.com/#!tools/c15gg I just love mine!

Oohhhhh, I love both the single necklace and the charm but I think I like the necklace the best. I will be happy either way the vote goes. I now have a special apron for the celebration and a Jubilee necklace is going to be just the perfect finish!! Whoop!!

I would "vote" for the necklace . . the smaller square one! As already mentioned, it would have more versatility.
Love it!

Finally made up my mind with a little help from my FarmGirl Sisters. I vote for the small square necklace.

Nini, I checked out the site you suggested. Very cute tools and accessories. I was all excited to order the 1 inch tool and epoxy and they're sold out. Dadgummit. I'll try again another day.

Catherine - You can also order them on Ebay, probably a bit cheaper, and HSN has combo sets that definitely save you money. Maybe that would be better? Hope it helps! Hugs - Nini

Super cute both of them, but I'd like the round one to put on the necklace Mary Jane.

I like them both, but I would choose the round one with the clasp so it could be used alone on a chain or added onto another necklace combination. I also like the extra blue and silver bead detail on the round one!

So it looks like I should get Elaine started on a small square necklace but how about weighing in on the design on the back. Karina put our vintage hand-drawn gal on the back but maybe we should find an old black and white photo or something for the back like on our Sisterhood necklace? What do you think?

And then for homemade versions as has been suggested, I found a bezel cup that had a loop at the top with 6 loops along the bottom. I thought if I used that kind of bezel cup, then I could put a yearly jewel, six years worth attached to the bottom, maybe even jewels that have the actual years, like 20l5, 2016 ... for every year I jubilate with my Sisters:)

Mary Jane,
I kind of like Karina's farmgirl on the back, but a B&W photo would be great too . . . whatever is the concensus!

Like the idea of the bezel you've found too!
Thanks for all you're doing for this!

MaryJane I like the idea of an old black & white photo. I appreciate the thought & time you and your crew are putting into making the charms possible.

I love the idea of an old black and white photo too. Maybe one of Mary Jane 15 years ago.

All of these ideas are wonderful! I like the small square necklace as well as the round charm. Brainstorming ideas on the make your own too!

Bonnie's suggestion of a pic of Mary Jane on the back is a good one, I think, as we are celebrating her this year!

They are both awesome ideas! I like the charms hanging on the bottom of the pendant.

MaryJane, I like the charm you already designed. But, like the other girls, I think a b&w would be pretty, too.

Love the small one. Maybe a B & W of Mary Jane on the back. Really anything you decide on would be nice. Like all the ideas.

I like it, and identify with one of the women, but I'm not saying which one.
