Silent Auction Donation

The other day I was poking around on Facebook and happened to notice a post of someone looking for donations for an upcoming silent auction. With a little digging I came to realize that it was for an organization a cousin of mine, who is an interpreter for the deaf, is involved with. It is an annual event called Souper Sunday sponsored by TSHA (Total Source for Hearing-loss and Access) in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

I was soon compelled to donate a piece to further the cause but wasn't sure where to start. Lo and behold, the typically elusive Muse stopped by for a visit to assist! Isn't it amazing how you can have coils of wire and a stash of beads and never hear any of them speak to you till the Muse pops by?! Well, it wasn't long till I there were whispers then shouts from my wire and bead corner. Before too long I was surrounded by tools, some chunky turquoise colored magnesite, big link copper chain and a couple of spools of copper wire and copper findings and was well on my way of working on a new adventure!

Magnesite & Copper chic rustic big link necklace and matching earrings.

Magnesite beads from Thunderbird Supply
Copper chain, wire and findings from Magpie Gemstones

Here it is, all boxed up with a Sunshine Polishing Cloth and Copper Jewelry Care Card, ready to ship!

My only regret is that I won't be able to be there to watch the bidding and hug the winner's neck!
