May Jewelry for Charity Set to Benefit the American Red Cross to Help Tornado Victims

Well the charity jewelry for this month is finally done and up on the website! After the tornado outbreak at the end of April, I decided to change charities and make this one to benefit the American Red Cross because they're helping the tornado victims.

Of course changing charity and purpose changed everything. I decided I wanted yellow and white beads, preferably with flowers, because yellow represents hope and renewal. Of course I didn't have any. I did a shout out on facebook to my glass artist friends though and Krissy from Krissy Beads came through for me with a beautiful set of beads that were just perfect!! This is the result...
Designs by Debi Handmade Jewelry for Charity Bracelet and Earrings Set Hope for a Bright Future. The one of a kind ooak bracelet features handmade artisan lampwork glass beads, sterling silver flower beads, Swarovski citrine and white alabaster bicones, a sterling silver hook clasp and extender chain with charms. The one of a kind earrings are leverback style with matching beads, crystals and chain.

I finally finished everything and got it up on the website today and I'll tell ya it was nice to work on something cheerful after a really rough couple days!

I brought Niko to the vet first thing Monday morning and he needs surgery. Doggie moms get really upset and nervous when their babies are sick, too :( 

Then it was a phonecall to my doctor for left arm pain that I feared may be a blood clot. Soon as he examined me he sent me off for a stat ultrasound and, sure enough, the basilic vein is clotted from just above my wrist all the way up my arm!! Talk about a bad day.

So I guess I'm hoping for a bright future, too...... and that's exactly what I wish for all of you  ♥xoxo♥
