A Different Kind of Contest


We are coming to that time of year that is so filled with family and joy and the laughter and gratitude of our friends: the holidays!!!

For some people this time of year can be devastating: a reminder of those who may have recently died or left a big space in their lives that cannot be filled.

Perhaps someone you know if struggling with a disease process or a problem whose solution is not yet in sight....

This October what I need you to do is send me an email about someone in your life who deserves something extraordinarily beautiful: someone who has a battle to do or a loss to overcome.

I will be choosing based on need at the end of October and the submitter and I will come up with a piece of jewelry fit for a queen (or king!) to help ease them into the holidays with something beautiful and meaningful by their side.


please send your emails to the following address:

sunnyrisingleather@yahoo.com 

Thank you so much in advance for being part of this!

You Allison, are not only thoughtful---you are full of grace. And...in this day and age that is a truly admirable 'condition'!
