"Black Thorn" | OOAK Necklace to Benefit the M.A.C. AIDS Fund

A few weeks ago, Keifla, the awesome M.A.C. artist who did my makeup for the Urban Vibes photoshoot, contacted me asking if I'd be interested in donating a jewelry piece for a huge charity event benefiting the M.A.C. AIDS Fund. It took me about one heartbeat to say yes, of course!

He mentioned that the audience would be other M.A.C. artists and that as such, black jewelry would probably work best. With that in mind, I came up with "Black Thorn", a one-of-a-kind necklace that will be sold via silent auction at the event today!

2014 Winter Urban Craft Uprising | Craft Fairs

In July, I wrote about the summer Urban Craft Uprising craft fair. UCU is held twice a year, the second fair being in early December! Tal and I attended the winter UCU on Saturday. Due to horrible traffic, we didn't have as much time to spend at the fair as usual. I did manage to snap photos of some of my favorite booths and we got a Christmas gift for Tal's dad. :)

For this guide, I included quite a few items that are sold directly by or support various animal charities. Your animal-loving friends will appreciate that their gift went to help animals and you still get to give them a gift in the process. Win win!

As you probably figure, given that I am a jewelry artist, I love jewelry! It makes for an easy and thoughtful holiday gift. This one is really more like two gift guides. I couldn't narrow it down any more. As someone who loves both kawaii/cute jewelry (like the style I make) and also beautiful/pretty jewelry (like the gemstone jewelry I used to make), my finds vary in style as well. I decided to split them into "fun" and "serious" jewelry... I guess that's how I think of it. :)

Oh, and this particular guide includes a lot of artists from different countries (not just the U.S.), so there are more local options for some of my non-U.S. readers as well!

FUN JEWELRY

This gift guide was difficult to put together... mostly because I want everything on it. Heh. Nail polish is a fun and often inexpensive gift. They also make great stocking stuffers!
