When someone asks me to donate my artwork for a fundraiser I have a difficult time saying "no". I want to help. However I have experienced some frustration because of donations I have given in the past to the point that I have learned to say "no" when asked. I do donate to charities of my choice and prefer to give monetary donations rather than my artwork.
This time was different. The person asking had purchased a piece of jewelry from me and they were very appreciative of my creativeness and the time involved in making the jewelry. I couldn't say "no"!
I created this piece for the ALS fundraiser.
I tried patina on the copper for the first time. I was surprised at how quick and easy it was!
I started out with the polymer yellow, green and orange beads. It needed a pop of color so I added the blue.
I think someone will enjoy this late summer - early autumn necklace!
