NYSARC Donation Bracelet


This is a freeform peyote stitch bracelet I made for the annual fundraiser for our local NYSARC, an agency that provides services to adults and children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. I especially enjoy supporting this organization because of its forward looking ideas of inclusion. I also donate at least one art class a year to the St. Lawrence NYSARC Community Arts Program, a program that includes visual arts, music, dance and theater arts. For the last several years I have brought my kiln and we have made fused glass jewelry. I have also demonstrated how the glass is melted in the kiln. Some of the jewelry we make helps raise money to support more opportunities in the arts.

  2. Hi LeAnn,
    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog. Can you imagine my surprise when the St. Lawrence NYSARC bus showed up at my stuio yesterday as part of the tour. Their Saturday Club was on an outing and I was so honored that they came. Each person made a fused glass pendant and looked around my studio. What a joy.
