The bangles are hand knit from wool and felted then embellished with bands of different yarn with a special motif to remind us of those affected by this terrible disaster. Each bangle is different and the particular characteristics of the yarn and felting process make each one truly unique.
The bangles are $10 each and every penny will be donated to the Red Cross. It’s my little way of doing something purposeful while sharing a bit of beauty and light during this dark time.
If you’d like to purchase one, leave a comment here with your contact info and I will get back to you. They’re a bit of a grab bag of creativity so you get what you get. But if there’s a colour you really can’t live with, let me know and I will try my best to accommodate. At this point these are available only within the Vancouver area. That way I can focus my energy and resources into making these gems rather than getting them to the post office.
Since I would like to forward donations to the Red Cross as soon as possible, I am taking orders only up until March 31, 2011.
