Feature Friday #41: Mother of pearl beaded necklace by Jelica

May 20th, 2011

This week’s donation was made by Jelica, a fellow Toronto artist whom I’ve never met but am very grateful to for contributing this lovely hand-made necklace made from mother of pearl beads, pink Swarovski crystals, and a lovely silver-plated pendant:

When I asked my friend Tracy (last week’s Feature Friday artist) if she could make a donation to The D.A.D. Project, she also enlisted Jelica, her friend and colleague, who has been making jewelry for friends and family for the past 3 to 4 years. Since her son left home this year to go to university, she has taken over his room and made it into a workroom to pursue her hobby.

Thanks Jelica, for your generosity and for donating this funky piece of jewelry – I hope to meet you one day to thank you in person!

For all of you who have a long weekend coming up, ENJOY!

Feature Friday #40: Glass pearl necklace by Tracy

May 13th, 2011

Our Feature Friday artist today is Tracy, a good friend of mine who has an incredibly generous heart and very talented hands. When she’s not busy fixing people’s teeth (she’s a dentist by trade), she loves to cook and make jewelry in her free time. Today’s donation, a hand-made necklace made from Swarovski glass pearl beads and crystals, is a beautiful sample of her handiwork:

To keep her further on her toes, Tracy’s also busy with her adorable 6-year old son and their Wheaton Terrier who joined the family a few months ago. I’m not sure where Trace gets all her energy but I love the fact that she’s just a kid at heart.

Thanks so much Trace, for taking the time to make something specifically to donate to our Project – we really appreciate it!

And another thanks to Outdoorzy90 for including our Mama bear in her etsy treasury, Cozy Comforts:

Ngan of eNVe Designs, whom I got to know through Twitter, has been a great cheerleader of The D.A.D. Project and reached out to us to make this week’s donation, a beautiful Blue Skies necklace (this is a one-of-a-kind piece – not sold in her own shop!):
