I volunteered to help organizers Sharon Peters and Lena Rhodes by gathering donations for the live jewelry auction (Sharon Peters is the auctioneer). have already received some very pretty things from some very kind and generious beadmakers.
Pictured from the top, clockwise:
A gorgeous floral pendant on a gold chain from Leah Fairbanks, a very unique and fun flower shaped necklace on a silk cord from Sharon Driscoll, and to the left, one of Amy Holms' (Formfireglassworks) Droplet necklaces in grey.
I still need a number of jewelry items for this event - if you are a lampwork beadmaker and make jewelry, please contact me. The deadline for me to receive these pieces is September 12 - please help if you can.
