Here is the finished set i made for the Art Saves Animals Auction for the
Mohawk and Hudson River Animal Shelter. This animal shelter had blessed me with so many wonderful and loving animals to share my life with over the years, so this is the least i can do. The stones are faceted chalcedony, hand chained, with sterling silver clasps and wires. The little statue the jewelry rests on is Ganesh, who it is said, is the remover of all obstacles... He sits on my modest little altar next to Kwan Yin, Mother Mary, Jesus and Saint Francis...The altar is a little sacred space in the middle of our home. Hopefully the beads will soak up some sunshine and good energy before they are packed up and sent off to the shelter!
