Wrist candy for Heart of Tucson horse rescue

HEART of Tucson horse rescue has so far  done a marvelous job  promoting the Beading Diva bracelet sales on their Facebook page.  On the first day of March, 11 bracelets were sold!

They were at the Arizona Animal Fair with their rescued mini horses which proved to be very popular with the crowd.

You can read about their many horse rescues here.

One particular former racehorse named “Gifted” has a sad story (not unlike racing greyhounds) but luckily has found his way to HEART of Tucson and is on the road to hopeful recovery. You can read the story about Gifted here.

One of a kind bracelets are available online (add $3 S&H) via Etsy.com.

You can also purchase them from Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Ave., 520-624-9954 OR Dirty Dawgs dog wash, 2510 N. Campbell Ave., 520-777-6045.  Every bracelet is handcrafted from beautiful beads which have been given to Beading Divas to the Rescue from our latest Bead Drive as we raise money for numerous  animal charities. Bracelets cost $20/each and no two bracelets are alike. Not only do you get an original piece of jewelry but it’s meaningful too.

One-of-a-kind bracelet to help greyhounds

Reminder, one of a kind bracelets for $20 are now on sale at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Ave (in the 4th Avenue shopping district – shop local), 624-9954.

Look for the mermaid in the window.

If you’re not local to Tucson, you can buy them online at Etsy-Lizzie Stardust (plus $3 shipping).

Bracelets come with a choice of greyhound or paw print charm.

“I just received the most beautiful bracelet that I purchased from the Beading Divas. It’s just about the prettiest thing I’ve seen. Really spectacular beads. Take a look on Etsy, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.” –Jean Rettus/AGR adopter/volunteer

For the entire month of January, bracelet sales help Arizona Greyhound Rescue which is located in Tucson/Marana. AGR rescues retired racing greyhounds from Tucson Greyhound Park and the now defunct Phoenix Greyhound Park.

Help give these deserving greyhounds get a new lease on life…a dog’s life not a throwaway enslaved race dog.

Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts is hosting a bracelet making class where five lucky participants can each make a one-of-a-kind bracelet to take home. All supplies are provided — memory wire, you-pick-the-beads, and a charm of your choice.

The cost for the class and bracelet is $25 which includes two hours of instruction, a one-of-a-kind bracelet, and fun and good cheer for all the participants.

All the money will be donated to Greyhounds 2 Go to help pay for two badly injured greyhounds who have raced and retired from the Tucson dog track.

The next class is Tuesday, July 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. at 330 N. 4th Avenue (look for the mermaid in the window), next to Bison Witches cafe. Call 624-9954 to reserve your spot.  This would be a nice activity for mother/daughter or two friends or co-workers.

If you love jewelry, choosing from lots and lots of beads, and helping greyhounds — go for it!
