The Arizona Animal Fair was a good day for greyhound vet bill fundraising.

We raised a whopping $561.00!

The bracelets glistened in the sun like a dazzling beacon singing – Come Buy Me!  They drew women in like a dark chocolate factory.

We lost track of the number of bracelets sold as there were many donations too.

People said they read about Lizzie’s story and the greyhound accident in the newspaper.

Thank you to Greyt Escape and Desert Dog News for allowing us to participate under your banner. It was a hot day, but well worth it.

Paws 4 a Cause was collecting money too.

Our next beading bee is March 8 and we’ll get another accounting and will post  an update at the time. I’m sure we’re getting near the fini$h line.

There are more bracelets for sale at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954 and online at Etsy.com (scroll to page 2 and 3).

Greyhound Injury Fundraiser-Fused Glass Jewelry 2009/02/11

Thanks to the generosity of Luann from Island Bead & Box, buy any (or all) of these four items and Luann will donate the amount of your purchase (less shipping) to pay Opal and Rider’s outrageous $14,000 vet bill after their hit-and-run accident.

Pizzazz: The custom fused glass pendant looks good enough to eat or wear with a little black dress or black sweater and jeans. This pendant on a rope mixes bling with classic style.  (SOLD)

Pretty in pink and teal: Chain-link, layered dichroic fused-glass bracelet is about 7 1/2 inches long and can be shortened.  This is a sweetheart of a bracelet.

Zen Necklace: Traditional Japanese braid called a kumihimo made by hand in the traditional manner on a wooden marudai with eight spools. The necklace is made with ribbon fibers and beautiful lampwork beads made by Frysmith, a well-known lampwork artist.

What’s blue and yellow and fun all over? Whimsical freeform vase with accents on the outside. The vase is about 6-inches tall by 7-inches wide. Signed by the artist. (SOLD)

Luann’s fused-glass pieces are one-of-a-kind, designed and created by her. Fusing generally requires multiple firings, so these products take quite a while from inception to final product.  Basically, she cuts sheet glass to a design that she creates then uses a grinder to smooth the edges and to make pieces fit.  After cleaning, the pieces are assembled in a kiln for a first firing.  The second firing is to shape the piece, as a vase, plate, or whatever.  Additional firings are used for more complicated effects.

Thanks for helping to pay the greyhound injury vet bills.
