Positively Charming Things

Niki owns the "Positvely Charming Things" shop on Artfire.

Niki creates bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.  She also has an assortment of holiday polymer clay beads in her shop.  The snowgirl bead is just too cute!

With a full time job, a long commute, and a busy home life, Niki doesn't have the time to create the detailed dragons and other items that she loves.  Maybe we'll be lucky and she'll share pics in her shop's gallery (hint, hint).  LOL

So, what are you still here?  Hop over to Niki's shop and see more of her goodies!

Edit: Niki has put up new pieces in her shop...the dragons are listed in her gallery...WOW!!!
