Spring into Spring

 After the popularity of my It Makes A Difference collection in support of ALS research JayBee Jewelry is bring them back!  25% of the Starfish Collection sales goes to The ALS Society of Canada.

A beach was covered with starfish that had washed ashore, and a little boy was bent over picking up one after another and throwing them back into the water. 
His mother rushed over and said, 'What are you doing?"  
The little boy replied, "If they don't get back into the ocean they will dry in the sun and die" 
"You can’t possibly throw all these starfish back in. It won’t make a difference." 
To which the little boy says, 'Well, it made a difference to this one.’

This is a lovely adaptation of a tale written by Loren Eisley called The Starfish Thrower.

 Affordable silver plated and recycled glass pendants capture the beauty of the sea and the essence of the beautiful story. $20

The beauty of the sea is captured elegantly in these solid sterling silver pieces paired with fresh water pearls and real sea glass.  $38

Team in Training Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Valentine's Fundraiser

As some of you may know I am currently training for the Ottawa Marathon Weekend with Team in Training.  Team in Training is one of the main fundraisers for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.  
14 years ago I lost a very dear friend to Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma and had always wanted to participate in Team in Training.  This year an opportunity arose and I jumped on it.  My fundraising goal is $1600 before the event in May.

As an extra incentive to donate to this great cause I have made a selection of original sterling silver pieces in the hearts, hugs and kisses theme that I will give to you for a generous donation to LLS.( you must be within the vicinity of Ottawa to receive or you can pay a small shipping fee outside of that area) Please go to my Team in Training fundraising page using the link below to make you donation.  I will contact you as to which piece you would like to receive.  You have until Feb 12th and then the opportunity is gone.
