I’m starting to take stock of what I have for the upcoming Artists for Animals Auction. I had made a bunch of things for the spring, but that one ended up being canceled due to the pandemic. I’ve made a few more things and will combine them all to have a decent showing. Let’s take a look.

Black background with white hoops and black and white striped beads made into earrings.

These happy mod earrings with vintage hoops are so fun. I hope someone likes them as much as I do!

Tan textured background with necklace featuring pendant of black open square with a multi-colored cat charm inside and multi-colored tourmaline round beads with smaller black beads in between.

This turned out so great, I kind of wanted to keep it. But I hope it can raise some good funds for the kitties! All of my sales will go to Madison Cat Project, a great organization that rehabs cats and finds them home as well as provides affordable spay/neuter services. The kitty charm is from Inviciti.

"Y" shaped necklace made of small rose colored rosary chain beads and a round bronze pendant with one heart inside another.

I could not get a good photo of this necklace; I’ll have to keep trying. But it is so pretty, especially on. I’ve noticed a lot of people on TV wear “y” style necklaces, and I always like them. So I made this one with a lovely bronze heart by Andrew Thornton. So sweet.

Speaking of Andrew Thornton hearts, here are some pretty polymer clay ones with metallic highlights. I love this charm and have used it several times in different pieces. I’ll have to decide if these need something else, but a favorite earring style of mine is hoops with art beads. Simple and beautiful.

Here is another simple pair of earring, but the kind of thing one could wear all the time. These gorgeous hoops are by Miss Fickle Media and the gemstones are from Dakota Stones.

One more pair of hoops by Miss Fickle Media with enamel drops (numisticks) by Kimberly Rogers of numinosity.

Necklace laying on book. Necklace has off white carved cat bead, with yellow coin bead above it and a variety of cream and brown glass beads in different shapes accented by a few blue tone beads.

Here is a lovely cat necklace with a bunch of mostly Czech glass beads, just the sort of thing I’d make for myself. The bone pendant is from Allegory Gallery.

Earrings with one pink bead and waffle textured bright blue metal triangular drops.

These funky earrings are cool with the vintage colored and textured metal. I feel an ’80s moment coming on!

Necklace with wooden pendant showing a paw print cut out and diamond shaped and ovals gemstone beads in brown, white, peach and grey colors.

Last but not least, here is a sweet wooden paw pendant from Allegory Gallery with some gemstones – I think jasper and moonstone.

That isn’t the last of what I have for the auction, but the last of what I have easily found to post here! I’ll work on getting it all together and ready for the auction. Tune in on the Artists for Animals Facebook page starting November 2nd. There are a lot of artists participating and a variety of handmade things (not just jewelry). It’ll give you something pretty to focus on that week!
