Joey’s Auction 25: Silver and Swarovski autism necklace

9 Aug

Meet Lori, of Beads by Lori and Sara, from Kokomo, Ind.

What: I am donating an Autism Awareness necklace that features a silver-plated puzzle piece pendant with Swarovski crystal accents. There are also four coordinating Swarovski crystals grouped with the pendant. It will be on an 18-inch silver-plated chain with a toggle clasp.  I’ve attached pictures, but the necklace can also be viewed in our Etsy shop.

How long: I’ve been making jewelry since high school … probably 12 years or so?

Where:  I have a shop on Etsy, Beads by Lori and Sara. We’re on Facebook and Twitter, and we do have a (not-so-frequently updated) blog.

Why: My best friend has Asperger’s Syndrome, which is on the autism spectrum.  I have watched her cope with her difficulties and power through to prove that she can do ANYTHING she puts her mind to, despite having Asperger’s. She is a beautiful person, inside and out, despite being different from what most people consider normal. (Who decides normal, anyway?! [Snap, Crackle, Pop says: Amen, sister!])  So many do not understand why she is the way she is, and they don’t understand how hard she works for the things she achieves. Anything I can do to bring a little more awareness and understanding is more than worth it!

This auction will be open until 11.59 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11. Each day through the 14th, I will post two to three auctions. If you like the item up for grabs, place your bid in the comments, and be sure to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you should you win. Each item will be a separate post, and each post will indicate when that particular auction is over.
