This weekend I made a few pendants to support a charity auction at work.

The turquoise is from @turquoise_moose, the rosarita heart and the aqua chalcedony are from In the coming weeks we are going to contribute funds to a few local organizations, including @bravespacealliance.

1 October. These pieces raised over $900 at our auction! I have to say, I haven’t really thought seriously about selling my work, but it was pretty thrilling to have these raise so much money. And, right now I have more necklaces and rings than I know what to do with. So, maybe that’s something to explore next year …
