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.
