Last week I was asked by a very good friend to donate a piece to a fundraiser for Ovarian Cancer. Naturally, I said yes before I even read any further into what it was for. But once I read through the full email, I am even more honored to have been asked to help raise money for this very worthy cause.
Here's the story:
In celebration of September’s National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, we are pleased to announce the upcoming Second Annual Volley for Molly tournament being held at Lexington High School . This event is in honor of a resilient and loving young woman who passed of this insidious disease at the young age of nineteen. Our goal is to stop this disease in its tracks!
I found out that the awareness color for Ovarian Cancer is Teal. So I pulled out my trusty bead boxes and went digging. Found a great set in Ann's box which she generously let me use. This is what I came up with.
A gorgeous set of teal lampwork glass beads, which I accented with a variety of Swarovski Crystals, hand wrapped circles and Mykonos Greek Spacers. I added a Silver Volleyball Charm as well as a Cancer Awareness Charm near the clasp.
Love how it turned out. I hope that this does well in the silent auction.
It's an honor to do my part for a good cause.
