Flap Your Wings


If you read my post here, then you will remember that last month Judy Glende lost her fight with cancer last month. Many of us in the beading community were very affected by her loss and wanted to do something as a tribute to her life and work. Tania of Moobie Grace Designs has organised a blog hop in order to do this. 





Life has somewhat run away with me over the past few weeks, and I really didn't want to rush this and come up with something that wasn't fitting, especially as I had already made this, inspired by Judy:









Using Erin's beautiful pendant....













...Anne's lampwork egg, D'Arcie's songbird, Gaea's clay round, Cindy's flower...









...and Cynthia's inspiring pewter link....






along with a clasp made by me plus a peach link from Shannon.









I am so pleased with how this piece came out, and you can read about this piece, Stronger than Death, came about here. I have decided to auction this piece off for Cancer Research. I feel that although this charity is UK based, research into cancer benefits us all, worldwide. I hope you will agree. I'm starting this off at £20/$30 (if no one wants the necklace, which I hope they will(!), I will donate at least £20 to CR). Open to bidders worldwide, I will cover postage including international.





Please visit Tania's blog for the list of other hoppers! I will list them here when I can :-)

Quick update - my bidding will close at 10am BST on Tuesday 17th April. Bidding currently stands at £33/$52.26.

The winner is Scotknit (my mum!) with £35. Thanks Mum, and to all the other bidders too!
