etsyBloggers Team Mini Monday Feature


Short Biography:

Hello! I'm Sharla and along with my mom, Sheri, we are using our love of creating beaded jewelry to benefit our love for animals. Recent news reports regarding animal hardships have put us into action to design and create beaded jewelry which we will give a portion of the sales proceeds to animal awareness causes. Each of our one of a kind designs contains an animal theme from paw toggles to cat face beads or animal awareness ribbon charms or butterflies.

Our items come from a smoke free environment, however, we are owned by both cats and dogs.


The following are a list of the organizations that we support:

American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals .... www.ascpa.org
Humane Society for the United States .... www.hsus.org
Dogs for the Deaf.... www.dogsforthedeaf.org
Alley Cat Allies.... http://alleycat.org
Chintimini Wildlife Rescue .... www.chintiminiwildlife.org

Total 2008 Donations $407 - Thank you to all our customers!

Our January 2009 donation was $44.50 to The Anderson House - safe home for women and children affected by domestic violence.

Copies of receipts are available upon request.

I have had pets literally all my life and currently my husband and I have a Husky named Sadie that was rescued from a puppy mill by the humane society and we have two cats, Isabella and Angel, that we adopted from the humane society in 2006. My mom has an American Eskimo named Samy that she adopted after someone got him as a puppy and was unable to take care of him. Our animals are a huge part of our lives and now live like royalty!

In addition to our current pets, we've had many wonderful pets that we've adopted from the humane society or had found abandoned so we certainly know that there is a great need for animal awareness education to prevent overpopulation, abused and homeless animals. We are grateful to be able to sell our jewelry here on Etsy in order to benefit animals.

We make beaded jewelry for animal lovers with a portion of ALL sales proceeds benefiting animal awareness causes. See our profile for a list of charities we support.

We are proud members of Etsy Angels, Pluggers United, EFA Artists Helping Animals,
EtsyBloggers and Abandoned Wild Baby Animal Rescue (AWBAR)


My friend, Sharla
