Donation for Civic Theatre

In my last post, I alluded to working on some donations that I would share the next day. Well...that obviously didn't happen because sometimes life gets in the way. The fundraiser was for the Ft Wayne Civic Theatre with a really fun theme for the evening. Local "celebrities" (politicians, business owners, news anchor) putting on a play where Snow White and Pinnocchio are running for the office of President of Fairytale Land. In an effort to support the local arts, I donated a couple pieces of jewelry. Also, because my sister in law is on the planning committee for this fundraiser and she asked nicely... First up, I donated a Viking Knit sterling silver and lampwork bead bracelet (my beads...of course). Handmade clasp. The only thing I didn't make or manipulate on this bracelet are the 2 end caps.

And because I was feeling generous, I also made a mixed media necklace specifically for the event with upcycled bullet casing.

I even made balled up the end of some wire to wrap the recycled sari silk to the leather cord. Actually, I think every piece of metal (except the chain in the tassel portion) was torched to darken or manipulate the metal.

I wasn't sure how the necklace would be received in the silent auction, but it did pretty well I think as the last bid I saw was $95 for it. I think the bracelet went for $85. Hubs and I attended the event this year for the first time and had fun. Although, with the weather being what it was, I kind of wanted to skip it and curl up in front of the fireplace with my honey instead. But we went, bid on several silent auctions, and won 2 of them.

Both are beautiful pieces, and those clasps are really gorgeous.
