Featured Organization for August
The featured organization for August is the Special Olympics of Michigan.
This organization is near and dear to me, my cousin Andrew has been a participant with the Special Olympics of Michigan for many years and has won his share of medals! Andrew is now 21 years old and is a very special young man. You always see a smile on his face (ear to ear) and anyone that knows him, knows that he loves Sponge Bob, and I mean really loves it! We love and adore Andrew!
For each "Shine" necklace sold a portion of proceeds will be donated to the Special Olympics of Michigan. Please also visit their site to learn more about their activities and how you can help this organization continue their fantastic work.
The "Shine" necklace is a 16 mm sterling silver disc with the word "shine" hand stamped. The necklace also includes a puffy sterling silver star charm and a beautiful, freshwater pearl that has been hand wire wrapped by hand. The charms hang on a 18 inch sterling silver ball chain. Artist note: The letters on this disc have been hand stamped one at a time. I do not use machines. The letters will not line up perfectly and are not meant to this is part of the charm that makes your piece one of a kind. No two pieces will ever be exactly the same. The disc has been brushed and the letters have been oxidized/antiqued, to make them stand out it will appear to be aged or slightly tarnished but has been given a good polish.
