Inside Out: Accessible Art (December 2018)

This grant is exciting because it involves both art and music therapy. Twice Upon A String provided two separate grants, so two different groups will have the opportunity to participate. I am so glad to support another program for teens and adults from SOAR (Special Opportunities Available in Recreation). The second group is a local youth group with at-risk teens.

The Baby Fold provides a positive living environment and specialized mental health and trauma treatment for children.

FROM ONE TREE-HUGGER TO ALL THE REST, HAPPY EARTH DAY! 🌎🌳 ❤️

April 22, 2019: These tree-hugger tree of life pendants are made with strings played by Todd Snider. The sterling silver figure I add to these special pieces are a slow process of dipping the figure into hot water, so I can manipulate the arms and legs to hold tight around the tree. I was honored when Todd said he wanted a pendant, and the top piece with Chrysoberyl (also know as Cat’s Eye) gemstones is the piece I made and gave him last week. #upcycle#reuse #ArtOrLandfill #earthdayeveryday

For most of her short life, Lilli fiercely battled childhood cancer. In July of 2011, just a few days before her 4th birthday, Lilli passed away. Every year on String Summit Sunday, we honor our little friend Lilli." 💗

I am thrilled to donate this upcycled Yonder Mountain String Band pendant to be auctioned at Northwest String Summit in support of the Lillian Trippe Memorial Shave and in honor of Lilli's love of YMSB. 🌸 Lilli battled childhood cancer and passed away before her 4th birthday. She is honored at String Summit Sunday every year by hosting a head shave while the rest of the crowd gets “Frilli for Lilli” by dressing up in their best Sunday Pink.
