Jewelry news  
A Rainbow Drive update - I am still waiting on payment from two people, and once that clears, I'll post the final total and make the donation.

Um, people should have started receiving some of their stuff in the mail by now. I hope that is the case.

In other jewelry charity news, I have decided to donate 5% of all my December Etsy shop sales to the Make-A-Wish Foundation (wish.org). This includes both Byzantium Lotus and the supply shop, Byzantium Treasures. In case you're unfamiliar with it, it's a charity organization that makes wishes come true for children with life threatening illnesses. I give a little something to them every year around the holidays (usually $50, but every little bit helps), and this year, I'm hoping to give more by doing this. I can't think of a better Christmas charity, personally. Go to the website and read some of the wish stories. I dare you not to get teary eyed. *sniffles*

Also, the Clearance sale is still going on at Byzantium Lotus.

All my recent jewelry has been Rainbow Drive related, or custom order related, but I've finally gotten caught up on most of that, so soon there will be new pieces listed in the shop. In the meantime, some pics of recent custom stuff:

The Make a Wish foundation is a fantastic charitable organization. I know someone who is on the local board for the Make a Wish foundation, and they do some really amazing work.

That person told me the story of a little girl who wanted wished for an outfit for her doll. They asked her if she wanted anything else, and she said no--all she wanted was an outfit for her doll. So, Make a Wish called Ralph Lauren, and he made an outfit for her doll, an outfit for her, and they flew her to NYC so she could meet him and play in his design studio.

Its such a great organization.

I love Make a Wish. I don't know how people can't be moved by pretty much everything they do. If I were a celebrity or otherwise rich, they would be my charity of choice for sizable donations. :D

E-mail...*goes to look* Aha! Stupid spam filters.

I'm not sure why it shuffled that to spam, but I've fished it out. Got it! Did you still want to do paypal? Or did you already? I haven't checked it in a couple of days.

I've got the pendant ready to ship. :)

Very pretty!

Make a Wish is so awesome. Ace of Cakes had a Make A Wish cake episode. *sniff* Makes me cry.
