We have a new shipment from our Artist friend in Poland!  Plus, I’m listing two of my personal pieces that I made for myself…

Click to go to the FB page


1)  LOVELY, RARE fresh water 8+mm pearls in a beautiful, lustrous creamy/rosy/grey sheen.  I purchased these pearls for myself several years ago… and then I strung them using sterling silver wire.  The clasp I made.  Sterling Silver.  They are 21″.  The reason I am selling them is because I made them too long for me… and I cannot stand the idea of cutting this apart to make it shorter.  So… PLEASE, purchase this for yourself or your mother.  You will not be sorry.  The pearls were $230 alone (and that was wholesale, several years ago).To purchase this lovely, rare necklace for $285, click here.

2)  MY OWN UNUSUAL CHAIN.  I made this for myself.  It layers really well with any color because it is neutral… really pops with pearls.  Can be worn alone and I receive many compliments.   Czech glass beads in varied sizes and colors, silver embossed chain, Sterling silver handmade heart charm.  Lobster clasp closure.  28″


3)  CLASSIC EVERYDAY 8mm white pearl necklace!   $48.

I wear mine ALL THE TIME.  Probably every day.  Perfect for Mother’s Day.  This one has a handmade Sterling Silver flower at the crystal closure.  Wear it alone or layered.  A perfect piece.  16″

53 NEWLY SEIZED HORSES NEED OUR HELP! Malnourished Pregnant mares, skinny yearlings… a herd left to fend for themselves! MAY BUCKET FUND: THE MUSTANG 53!


This got so out of hand.  A human thought he could let a wild mustang herd live ‘naturally’ in an unnatural setting.  They were cooped up on insufficient acres and bred indiscriminately.  The youngsters are malnourished and half of the size they should be.  All the mares are pregnant and suffering.  Everyone is unhealthy. Most have a body score of under 1.  There wasn’t enough food… and all are suffering because the human mismanaged their care.

Luckily, this herd was seized and is now under the care of three rescues helmed by KHEART, Kansas Horse Education, Advocacy and Resource Team.  (KHEART Member Rescues:
Rainbow Meadows Equine Rescue and Retirement, Inc., Shooting Star Equine Rescue, Inc., and Hope in the Valley Equine Rescue and Sanctuary, Inc.)

Please, let’s help right this wrong.  These mustang mares are all pregnant and in deplorable condition.  Last year’s babies are tiny and haven’t grown property.  All are desperate for groceries and skin remedies.  The malnourished horses all need what food provides.

44 are in holding at $11/horse per day – this is a huge burden to the county.  Nine are in special intensive care to help boost their vigor.  The skinny, tiny weanlings and yearlings are being watched and monitored while their re-feeding programs take shape.

Please, help us help this horribly mismanaged herd come back to health and be prepped for future adoption.

A very pregnant, 22 year old mare.

This filly is 2 years old. Clearly stunted.

Everyone has a body scale of 0-3.

This pregnant mare is losing her hair from malnutrition.


I really don’t have any idea why a human would think that a natural mustang herd could live ‘naturally’ in an unnatural situation.  They were confined on limited acres with not enough food, no ability to graze and move, no natural enemies and no support.  And on top of this all, they didn’t geld the herd stallion.  So, the herd grew even larger…

This was so unfair.  In a natural environment, they would have a fighting chance… but in a large enclosure, they rely on human help.

There was none.

Until now.

Please help right this wrong.  Let these mares have food so they can foal to their best ability given their condition.  Please let these yearling and weanlings grow to a normal size and be adopted.

They all deserve better treatment from the humans looking after them.

A very pregnant, skinny mare.

A sickly weanling.

All donations are 100% tax deductible.

This would mean a lot to me personally.  Let’s be the humans who intervene to make a huge, positive difference in the lives of these captive mustangs.
