Win Win

Mom was involved in another Airedale in Need auction on facebook.   This one was to help Lexi, who needed surgicals on her ear. 
The auction raised a total of $5, 303.47!  That will help Lexi so much!

A handmade bead by Jennie Lamb, was offered.   This one is an Anemone flower bead full of handmade glass murrine flowers to create an underwater scene. It is set on Sterling silver and is currently on a silver plated ball chain which can be adjusted in length. 

The bead arrived from the UK on Monday.

 The bead is not easy to photograph and no photo could ever do it justice.   It is absolutely stunning in person!

 We need to find a permanent place for it so it will showcase its beauty, mom!  Maybe here??   This auction was sure a win-win -  for Lexi and for us!

Love ya lots♥

How pretty. I am sure you would love to wear it. Be careful though
Domino had pearls and broke them in her bushes in the yard.
Now she has lost her duck. Waiting till this afternoon when the grandson comes to scour the bushes to find it!
Thanks for sharing your lovelies. Have a great day.

That sure is beautiful. Maybe you can hang it in a window so it will show off its beautiful colors.

Oh yes indeed, that is exquisite!!! And so much money raised too!!! Maybe someone could help set in the center of a suncatcher and you could hang it in a sunny window.
