Put A Ring On It

Supporting causes that are dear to my heart and also supporting other artisans is something that is important to me.

Marsha Neal is one of those artists who makes some beautiful ceramic components. She has an Etsy shop called MyMomPattie in honor of her mother who passed away in 2007 from a rare form of leukemia. I am one of a handful of artisan jewelry designers who use Marsha's beaufiful ceramic components in jewelry that we donate to the shop. Each purchase at MyMomPattie gets Marsha a little bit closer to her goal of $5000 to set up a place of honor at a bird sanctuary that her mother loved to go and care for sick or injured birds.

I created Put A Ring On It using Marsha's midnight blue swirl ceramic disk charms and thought that since they were mini-works of art, they deserved a pretty frame in an etched brass ring.  

Erin Prais-Hintz invites you to go on a journey of inspiration at her blog Treasures Found :: Inspiration is Everywhere. You can view a gallery of her work at or purchase her new line of 'Simple Truths' in her Etsy shop.
