Giving from the Heart!

In getting ready for Autumn, I began to think about what matters most to me & my family. When I created The Silver Rose, I wanted to give back to society. I started my business as a fundraiser for charities in the Puget Sound area. Giving back was and still is important to me. Now with eBay and our website, I am able to reach a broader audience. With the help of our wonderful customers, we have been able to raise money for the families of 911 victims, survivors of the Tsunami and the efforts to rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Even though we are a small family business, I know that with our customers/friends we have made and will continue to make a difference in the world! Thank you!

Another new friend of SilverRoseBeads, Shelley highlights the wonderful people that make up her giving community on her blog: I'm Still Standing. She writes about how to create inclusive playgrounds on her blog: Confessions of a Playground Princess. Be sure to stop by her blogs and find out more about this amazing woman and her family!

Creating a Necklace with an Extender Clasp

Jasper is said to bring good fortune and new beginnings to the wearer! And I love this piece of Apache Jasper (#8281) The drama of the shape combined with the color demanded to be featured in a necklace. I am constantly changing my mind about the length I need for my necklaces, so creating an adjustable necklace was a must do! For this piece I chose to coordinate the colors for a subtle look.
