Bracelets for Bucks

One of my dearest friends, Pam Cuny, is very active in her community. One of the organizations she is involved with is the Animal Advocates of Barnwell County. This non-profit charitable organization is made up of volunteers, dedicated to rescuing, healing, safeguarding and giving new life to animals. They have taken on a project to open an "upscale" thrift store to raise money to eventually build an animal shelter.

Pam came up with the idea to have the organization purchase from me some inexpensive bracelets which could be sold for a small profit in their "Pick of the Litter" thrift store. Each bracelet would have either a cat or a dog charm on it and be for girls anywhere from elementary to high school. I used a variety of colors of Czech fire-polished beads and have been very busy making bracelets all week long. Here's just a few as a sample.
