Designed for a cause...

One of my handmade LadyrookBeads became a focal bead in a necklace handmade
 by jewelry designer/artisan Rita of Giantoniadesigns. This special necklace described in Rita's own words "I had the hearts and ribbons bead targeted for a piece that a friend of mine asked me to create for an auction to benefit breast cancer research. I also used the adorable little heart charm you so generously provided for me."  I asked Rita to provide me with the makers of the other artisan made components ... she excitedly let me know they all have  shops on Etsy too! So again in Rita's words..." The beautiful word bead was created by Diane Hawkey. The copper heart was created by Jade Scott. The lovely lilac lampwork beads were created by HMB Studios.. The hand dyed silk ribbon was by Jamn Glass. I had also used some Vintaj Natural Brass components as well as the "inspire" charm. " So cool to have my bead in good company! Great piece Rita!
Thanks Rita for sharing & creating with handmade artisan components! Continue your wonderful designs! I know one very lucky person will be proud to wear this lovely statement necklace!
 The beauty of clay is it's endless ways of creating with it!!
Wishing a happy day to all...blessings & blissings!♥
