It can be a powerful thing to donate jewelry that I have created for a cause that I believe in. This last month I created and donated a special sterling silver and yellow sapphire pendant for Virginia Meissner Snow Park’s annual fundraiser. Virginia Meissner is located not far out of Bend, Oregon and is one of my favorite places to go for a moonlight ski during our beautiful winter months. As the universe would have it the woman who won the pendant was out celebrating her birthday and the sapphire in the pendant is her birthstone. I love it when the jewelry that I create can have such a powerful impact on others.
