The Artists for Animals Auction is coming up in a few weeks. It takes place on Facebook November 2 – 8, 2020. I believe I actually have a fair number of pieces made, but they are flung hither and yon, so I feel the need to make more in addition to taking stock of what I have when I get a chance. Due to the pandemic, we did not have our spring version of the auction. My funds go to Madison Cat Project. They are moving into a new facility and trying to outfit it. They are also collaborating to help folks who are experiencing special economic challenges during this time get supplies and vet care for their pets. So, I’d like to raise some money to help out.

Today I made a necklace. One of my classic mixed bead knotted strands with a pretty polymer owl pendant by Brooke Bock.

Necklace featuring an oval pendant with a turquoise background and a tan owl on a branch. The strand has a variety of shapes, sizes and shades of mostly glass beads in tans and turquoise. The background is brown/tan mottled handmade paper.

I find the colors in this pendant lovely and calm. I gathered together a variety of beads in those colors to knot on waxed linen. The necklace is long enough to just slip on with no clasp. Easy breezy!

You’ll probably be seeing a post or two showing other things I’ve made once I gather them together and take photos. I also have a few other things in mind to make. If you are looking for handmade things for yourself or for gifts, visit the auction in November. There are many things other than jewelry, and each artist supports their chosen animal charity.
