Creating jewelry for charity
JAC May blog carnival
This months blog carnival from Jewelry Artisans Community is about creating jewelry for charity.
In all the years of making jewelry I have donated 3 pieces for charity, better said I gave the 3 pieces to be prices for a tombola.
In the village where I live there is a small sports club for disabled people and one of my neighbours has a daughter with down syndrome who happen to be the organisers of that club.
They had a New Years day tombola a few years ago and they asked me if I was willing to sponsor or donate one of my pieces that could be won.
I have a good relation with those neighbour and I have seen their daughter grow up from when she was 8 years old and in the few years my daughter played with her we became friends with them.
So when they asked me if I wanted to donate some of my jewelry for charity I didn’t hesitate and gave them 3 necklaces.
I don’t have photos from all of them, the blue necklace and the bordeaux necklace where among them and the green necklace is similar to the one I donated for the event.
I will add the links from our other JAC members when available, so you can read their blogpost about “Creating jewelry for charity”.
