Artists Helping Artists Silent Auction

Artists Helping Artists Silent Auction

Several artists in the blog community have decided to band together to help a fellow artist in need. 
Have you ever felt adrift?  Had something happen in your life that left you a bit stunned, a bit helpless?  Have you ever needed a helping hand?  Wished for someone to lean on?  I have.  We artists have become friends thanks to the amazing world of blogging... and we are all banding together to help a fellow artist.  We all have our roots in a love for creativity and are reaching out to help ground a friend in need.  I have donated to the cause, will you?

I created this piece for the Bead Soup Blog Party (here is my post for more info) and it is beautiful.  It features a gorgeous copper pendant from the Queen Bee mines in Arizona, fire agate, jasper, and suede cord.  I chose this piece because the layered circles remind me of love and friendship... they are intertwined... connected.  If a piece was lost then the entire pendant would be less stable, each circle makes the other stronger.

My partner from the challenge, Elisabeth Auld made the clasp herself.  It is a beautiful and vibrant piece.  It's full length is approximately 18", the pendant measures approximately 2" across and 1.75" down.
