This last Thursday was pendant night at the studio - its an open studio night where anyone can come (no experience necessary) and make pendants which they get to keep for just $1/each.Its fun to see people bring their families, children, friends and loved ones.
There were a couple of groups from the Big Brother Big Sister organization - two women brought in their "little sisters" to enjoy making glass jewelry with them. How fun is that!
The pendants all are made with little pieces of scrap from the studio, and they get fired in a kiln over the weekend.
The Third Thursday of every month is Pendant Night. This upcoming November Third Thursday will be a night of making pendants for children that have been diagnosed with cancer, all the pendants made that night (Nov 20th) are donated to Legacy Emanuel here in Portland.
