Team Fundraising Project

A few months ago, Artisan Beaders Street Team decided to create a charm bracelet which we planned to take bids on in order to raise money for a worthy cause. We chose a charity that assists women who have been victims of rape, abuse and incest.

The theme of our bracelet is "The Ocean". Each participating member interpreted that in her own way. I have received some lovely ocean themed charms and am preparing to construct the actual bracelet. Here are some photos of the charms and the lovely clasp made by one of our team members. Click on any of the photos to see a larger version.

This photo shows some more detail of the clasp and some pretty lampwork beads.

Here are some sterling silver charms and special gemstone beads.

This photo shows a polymer clay bead, more lampwork and freshwater pearls.

Here's a gorgeous lampwork shell charm and more pearls.

Stay tuned to see the progress of the bracelet and find out how you can make a bid -- all for a very worthy cause.
