I made a necklace for an auction at the Junior League of Tulsa-sponsored event, Badges ‘n’ Barbecue that benefited the Tulsa Crime Commission. Called “Night at the Opera” after my favorite Marx Brothers film, this piece is reversible and features Miyuki Tila Beads in matte and transparent blueberry rainbow.
This necklace, I was later informed, raised $200 for the Crime Commission. I am so, so pleased to be able to help contribute to such a valuable organization. Gives me hope for my dream of using Petunkalunka as a way to better support my local and global community. Someday my jewelry will buy goats and mosquito nets and vaccines, I swear it!
