Something I’ve learned about myself over the years is that I am happiest when I am able to give. I don’t have a lot of extra time ’cause let’s face it, life is busy and trying to pay the bills as an artist is challenging. That’s why I often give a percentage of my sales to Schools and Organizations and donate jewels to raffles and auctions. I wanted to share a list of the causes I’ve supported in last few years — either in cash donations or auction/raffle prizes.

If you have any charity close to your heart you would like to suggest,  please contact me.
