*Disclaimer – While this IS a political post, I am not trying to initial debate here on my blog. I respect diverse opinions, but please keep it respectful as you are in MY house.*
I needed to DO something. I needed to refocus as I was feeling depleted, and overwhelmed. I read the articles on self care, breathing, keeping the resistance efforts maintainable to persevere for the long haul. And I was stunned, horrified, and angry.
So I started pounding on metal.
I make jewelry with meaning; sometimes symbolic, sometimes overt. I make talismans, and I make them with intention. SO I made “Resist” “Nasty” and “She persisted” necklaces. Then a friend suggested “Beautiful Resistance”.
After posting these on Facebook – I was thrilled with their response – because, you see, I pledged $5 of every necklace to the ACLU. And my friends responded in kind to support me and a worthy cause.
In a week I have made 19 necklaces and am sending $95 to the ACLU. I am also getting a “Nasty Woman” ceramic mug from Dancing Pig Pottery.
“Nasty” necklaces – $25
“She persisted” and “Beautiful Resistance” – $35
Necklaces are 18″ in length and come with gemstones/crystals colors of your choice.
- Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “ACLU necklaces”
- Request style/colors/length. ( 18″ unless otherwise noted)
- Your PayPal address/email address linked to your PayPal account. I will send you a PP invoice, which facilitates shipping for me. (There will be a $3 domestic shipping charge. )
I will be accepting orders for another 24 necklaces. First come first served. After that – we shall see… Until then – stay strong, stay informed. Support each other and take care of yourself!
