Ice Flake Quartz Peace Bracelet by sue8261
This bracelet from EFA newcomer sue8261 is both icy and winter white, and guaranteed to chase away the blues. The bracelet features sparkling nuggets of ice flake quartz, opalescent Swarovski crystals, a sterling silver squiggle and a sterling silver peace symbol. I hope this bracelet conveys a message of joy and peace for the new year. As is the case for all bracelets in my Etsy shop, 100% of the sales proceeds from this bracelet will benefit a wonderful organization called Animal Rescue Corps (ARC).
I have been helping animals most of my life through advocacy, adoption, monetary donations and volunteer work. As a jewelry artist, my goal is to help animals by donating a portion of my sales revenue to humane charities. Approximately half of the items in my Etsy shop are 100% charity donations (to our team’s charity of the month or ARC). In addition, I donate jewelry and my original nature photography note cards to humane organizations for sale in their gift shops and at fundraisers and charity raffles. I work especially closely in this regard with my local humane society, the Palo Alto Humane Society, but am always looking for new opportunities to partner with organizations that work to benefit animals.
