It’s time again for Airdrie’s annual Empty Bowls Arts Festival! This fundraiser for the Food Bank is a popular event featuring a wide variety of artists, each of whom has donated a piece of work to the silent auction.
I’m donating Country Garden, a beaded cabochon necklace. This strap is 17 inches (43 cm), with a 3-inch (7.6 cm) drop for the double cabochon. The decorative toggle clasp is lead- and nickel-free.
I found the stones on a trip to Quartzsite, AZ several years ago. The pale pink and faded green colours in the stones reminded me of an old-fashioned rose garden.
The Arts Festival runs Saturday June 22 from 11 to 5 pm at Nose Creek Park in Airdrie. It promises to be a lot of fun, no matter what the weather. You can find a list of the artists here and the scoop on the activities here.
