I’m excited! Michelle Ann McCarthy and Joan Miller have made it so easy to raise money for my favorite animal charity, Madison Cat Project. The next Artists for Animals Auction starts on Monday, November 11, 2019 and runs through Sunday, November 17, 2019. A variety of artists and types of art will be for sale to benefit different animal charities. It’s a wonderful thing!

Madison Cat Project is an adoption guarantee organization that finds a home for every cat that comes to them (including cats who prefer to live as barn cats and still have food and shelter), runs a spay/neuter clinic, and has an extensive network of fosters to rehabilitate and care for hard to place cats in order to get them ready for their forever homes.

I’m going to show a few of the things I’ve made for the auction. I hope you will join us next week to take a look.

Here is a sweet kitty necklace with all sorts of lovely Czech glass.

I am in love with this next necklace called Favorite Things.

Beads, cats, coffee and color! It features two vintage moonglow lucite charms, a kitty pedant by Green Girl Studios (that says “kitty comfort” on the back) and a patterned coffee cup by Inviciti. I used silver chain in the front and sections of a variety of colored chain in the back for a surprise pop of color. If you read this blog, you know how I love chain sections. I hope someone else loves this necklace as much as I do! (The kitty charm is pewter; the slight greenish cast on it is a reflection from the moonglow charm!)

Although I usually make necklaces for myself, I think earrings are easier for people to buy, so I make more of those for the auction. Here are four pair.

Going clockwise from top left: German glass and vintage brass, African glass and donuts by Yvonne Irvin-Faus, anodized aluminum and skulls by Andrew Thornton, vintage glass and hollow metal drops.

I have lots more, and there are many other artists participating too. I am off to finish up my descriptions and make sure I have all the pictures I need. Hope to see you at the auction!
