Artisan Lampwork June 26, 2013

The generosity of spirit of glass bead artisans never ceases to amaze! So many of our artisans are involved with Beads of Courage, a charity that allows children to tell the journey of their illness in beads. And many others support other charities or family members facing a medical challenge.

Such is the case with one of our sponsors, Mallory of Rosebud 101. She has a whole section of her shop called Jenny's Picks. The items from that section benefit her daughter Jenny by helping with the medical expenses incurred during her battle with multiple myeloma. So Mallory, we salute you and your big Tiger Mom heart today with a big Tiger Heart from Jenny's Picks!
