Taking my jewelry at the church ladies conference

The day is finally here. I will be taking my jewelry to the church ladies conference at Jones Chapel. Making jewelry helps me pass time in the campervan and is one of my favorite hobbies. Seeing the pieces come together is a little like opening a Christmas present. You sit down to a blank slate of beads, wires and findings. A little while later you have something pretty.

My jewelry won't be sold at a profit at the conference tomorrow. Instead, half of the proceeds will go to support the conference. It's my way of giving back to my home church. I figure it's the least that I can do for the love that we are shown. The ladies pulled my tail out of the fire when my daughter married. I owe them for that big time! But, that's not the only reason for donating to the church.

This church does a lot of work for the community. It has to be one of the most (if not, the most) helpful churches to the community that I have ever been involved with. They feed the hungry, have an annual dinner to benefit Relay for Life, support mission teams - you name it. They just love people and will do whatever for someone. This may sound trite, but it's reality here.

Here are a few pictures of the jewelry up for grabs tomorrow. Some of the pieces are in my Etsy store, but most are only available at the conference tomorrow. Let me know if you see something that you like.
