Beads Of Courage Fundraiser

The jewelry donations are slowly trickling in for the Beads of Courage fundraiser on September 18 and 19 at Aanraku Studio in San Mateo, CA. Beads of Courage is an organization that gives beads to children with cancer as rewards for their courage during the treatment.

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.

Here's the fun-filled agenda for the fundraiser weekend:
