Charms for Charity -Metal Clay artists from around the world coming together

For the past few years, the metal clay community from around the world has come together for a fund raising drive called Charms for Charity, creating bracelets and necklaces incorporating metal clay charms .

The original  Charms for Charity was a fundraising drive in remembrance of Robin Whittemore, who lost her fight with Breast cancer in 2007, while waiting for a bone marrow transplant. This year's charities are the American Cancer Society and the Marrow Foundation .

I've just completed my charms and am ready to ship them off - 3 charms in kanji represent Hope, Love and Strength, a nautius shell with dichroic glass cab, kitty cat, dragonfly and love letter - along with checks from generous friends in the Brookline Town and School community.

We'll all be holding our breath waiting for news of the winners in the drawing on July 30,  at the PMC conference at Purdue
