My Donation for the Animal Shelter

I dropped off my donation for the Durham Animal Protection Society's Tails at Twilight Gala yesterday. I hesitated about posting about it here, because it feels a bit like saying "Look what I made and you can't have it nya nya nya." I spent so many days braiding the kumihimo cord for this necklace that I wanted to record it in some way, so here it is. This is over 40 inches long, worked in a spiral pattern with spring green and yellow silk thread, with a sunny yellow fused dichroic glass pendant. I really love working with silk thread because it just feels wonderful!

I hope this brings in a nice amount for the 7,000 or more animals our local APS takes care of each year. And if you really want this piece I can make a similar one for you--but you can't have this one. ;)
