As many of you know, Ventura County, our home for the past 45 years, has suffered catastrophic damage from multiple fires in December.  Many of our friends and neighbors are having to deal with incredible losses of their homes and memories.  I have created a fused glass pendant, based on one of my art pieces, entitled “Fire Tree” and I’m going to use it as a fundraiser to provide much needed support, of all kinds, to the victims of the fires.  The pendants are $50, plus $5 if I need to ship them and 100% of the proceeds from their sale will go the Thomas Fire Fund set up by United Way of Ventura County.  The pendants are about 1″ x 1.5″ and have a bail added to make them ready to wear on your own chain.  If you’d like to have one, please e-mail me directly at and I’ll get right back to you.
